Treviso by itself is a beautiful town and the walk all around the Garibaldi river is worth it. Honestly it's a better experience than Venice with lovely trees n less people. There are a few cafe's along it where one could relax and sip over a drink.

Nice area that offers all the wine bars and cicchetti you could ask for without the cruise ship crowd found in other parts of Venice.

Via Garibaldi in the heart of Castello district is the best place to go to to escape the madding crowd. Only a few tourists venture that far away from St Mark's Square though it does have some good restaurants and the excellent Snack Bar Castello which is the ideal place for a lunchtime snack or an evening drink. Here you... More

There aren't that many long streets in Venice. We wandered down this one after visiting the Basilica San Pietro and walking back through the Castello district. Parts are a little run down, but there are a few cafes and restaurants - better value than further west in the city. As described to us, it's where the regular Venetians live and... More

Via Garibaldi is a busy street in the Sestiere di Castello. A former canal that has been filled up to make the only "via" (the normal name for "street" in Italian) at the beginning of the 19th Century. Castello was a popular area a bit far away from the city centre, and somehow isolated by the busy industrial area of... More

Great area to walk around in and feel the local Venetian atmosphere. No stress and a lot less tourists. Take a walk thru the park on the way back.

We didn't really know where we were going when we strolled this street, we had a few dead ends or canal ends we couldnt cross and were searching for bridges and footpaths. A relief to find a nice large street.

Staying in Castello

Neighbourhood Profile
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the 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 strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
