Castello is one of the Venetian „Sestieri“ that still maintains the original charm of the city and whose buildings tell the adventurers that lose themselves in its Calli numerous histories.
We start our walk through this marvellous district at the so-called “Pantheon of the Doges” and hear about an unlucky sculptor, who left his marks there.
Then, our discovery-walk will bring us past the cloister/convent of the „merry nuns“ to a magic place where no evil stands a chance, neither war nor the plague.
We will also see tiny local shops on that are still today important for the daily life of the citizens.
Our tour will end at the Arsenal, the former Venetian shipyard, where the fleet for one of the most important naval battles in history was built.

Piacere, mi chiamo Beatrice!
I grew up in the heart of the Alps, in Innsbruck, and decided in 2012 to move from the snowy Tyrolean peaks to the Venetian lagoon.
The travel-bug bit me during an Erasmus stay in France and so I decided after my University studies to start a backpack adventure through Canada.
After one year I said “good bye” to the American continent and moved to Venice (What you do for love!) and searched for a possibility to combine my passion for languages, travelling, culture and reading.
The solution? Four years ago I passed the governmental exam here in Italy to become a licensed tour leader and then a tour guide. Since then I’m guiding visitors through this fascinating city.
