Castello Neighbourhood Tour

At 3:30 pm, we will meet up at Campo Santa Maria Nova to begin our tour of the largest neighborhood in Venice: Castello.

During the guided tour we encounter the two faces of Castello, from its most touristic areas to its most humble streets. We will start the tour by learning about the heyday that this neighborhood experienced in the 13th century as a result of the enormous shipyard that was built in this area, now known as the Arsenale, which became the largest naval complex in Europe!

The walk will take us to the façade of the Basilica of St. John and St. Paul, the largest church in Venice. We will reveal to you the legend that explains the location of this Dominican temple which appeared in the dreams of Jacopo Tiepol, who became the supreme leader of the Republic of Venice.

The guided tour will also allow us to visit one of the most beautiful bookstores in Venice. We will then contemplate the exteriors of the parish of Santa Maria Formosa, the Scuola Grande di San Marco school, and other iconic buildings of Castello.

We will see the Doge's Palace, one of the most important monuments in the Italian city. This magnificent building has been used as the Seat of the Government, the Court of Justice, the prison, the home of governors besides more.

We will finish the tour in via Garibaldi between 5:00 pm and 5:30 pm.
