Private The Real Venice, The Castello District

The Castello district is the largest and most diverse district in Venice. On the west end, you will find glamour and the finest in art and architecture, while the east end is the more of a working class and residential area. During this tour you will explore both.

Your journey into the Castello district begins at the edge of the Arsenal area, where you can admire the massive Venetian Arsenal, a complex of former shipyards and armories. In the Ship Pavilion, a detached section of the Venice Naval Historical Museum, you can survey a fascinating collection of historic ships.

From there you will continue exploring Castello, visiting some beautiful churches and an interesting building hosting a unique collection of original paintings. Throughout your tour you will also encounter some places off-the-beaten path which are rich in art and history.

This cultural excursion is perfect for those who are short on time yet want to get a feel for traditional Venice. Sign up today for your very own exclusive and intimate private tour.
