  • Beautiful area of Venice, just few steps from via Garibaldi, rich in history and traditions handed down. In the centre there is the basilica and Bell Tower a Marina where departing and arriving rowers, small boats and boats with which they can sail vs arsenal. Once a year there is the feast "festa de San Pietro de casteo" deeply felt by the Venetians. Stalls markets and live music in a unique setting!

  • Located on the island of San Pietro, behind Arsenal, this magnificent church stands on a campo to the bucolic charm with its beautiful small houses scattered all around. Unfortunately, this building is, as so many others in Venice, completely abandoned by tourists (we were 5, for more than an hour, to visit!). And, however, it is an architectural Marvel (classified world heritage of UNESCO), rebuilt in 1558 according to the designs of the famous Andrea PALLADIO. Inside, with 3 naves, has a huge dome of 54 m and is home to a wealth of works of art: sculptures of Gian Maria MORLAITER, PADOVANINO, VERONESE, BELTRAME paintings... The splendid black and white marble Chapel, designed by Baldassare LONGHENA, in the left nave, houses a beautiful altarpiece by Luca GIORDANO: "The Virgin and child with the souls of the purgatory". In the chorus, stands the magnificent and dazzling high altar made by Clemente MOLI in polychrome marble richly adorned with statues sculpted by Francesco CAVRIOLI, just the short, Bernardino FALCONE. A wonder to visit absolutely!

  • The area is part of one of the less touristy than Venice, one of the most fascinating for us, we walked through the streets of this tiny island connected to Venice by 2 bridges and we admired the colorful houses and small fishing boats with nets hanging out to dry.

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
