Castello is one of the Sestieri in Venice that still today maintains its charm and authenticity. It’s like time stands still.

We start our tour at the former shipyard of Venice where a fleet of more than 100 ships was built for one of the biggest sea battles in Christian history against the Ottoman Empire. We then continue our walk past little grocery shops (nowadays a real rarity in Venice), a tiny chapel that protected the inhabitants from the black death and the church where Marco Polo was buried.

It’s not possible to access the Arsenal shipyard as the area is today a military area and thus off limits.
