Atmosphere. Affordability. Affability. This place has it all. Hands down the best place in Venice for a quiet night time drink. If you want tasty local wines, order a bottle here. I found it very romantic as well - and though we were here in...More

A very pleasant evening spent here by the canal in a very quiet location. Excellent wine. Entertained by the passing gondolas. Would definitely go back on a return visit to Venice. A real find.

This is a pleasant wine bar in a quiet spot with tables at the canal side - have a drink while watching the gondolas pass by. Good selection of reasonably priced wine or try the local cocktail - Bellini.

Kept going back to this little bar, for aperol spritz because it has a perfect location on a canal and little quite square. Has nibbles on offer too if you hungry and a restaurant attached.

We went to Wine Bar 5000 (also connected with Luna Sentada) as a recommendation from our B&B. The place was wonderful. We had a couple glasses of Prosecco, snacks and enjoyed sitting outside along the canal. Many gondolas pass by, but yet the area is...More

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated
within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
