Great location, fantastic friendly host, and modest but very clean and safe. The only reason I'm giving this 3 stars and not 5 is that we got ripped off by using the monasterystays au website who charge 20% of the room rate PER NIGHT. Yes...More
It took us a little time to find it but after we were there, it was very simple. If starting from Rialto Vaporetto stop, go to the bridge and turn right. That gets you going in the right direction. At the square with the statue,...More
This was a very satisfying stay at the monastery. The nuns make sure you feel very welcome and the monastery is very close to St.Marc’s Square. The place is made more lively as a school is next to the accommodation and you have a taste...More
Lovely place to base yourself for a few days in Venice. The nuns and staff were really welcoming. The room was clean and the air conditioning a luxury in the heat. There's a small communal kitchen that is perfect to pop in to for breakfast/dinner....More
We spent four fantastic nights at the Istituto San Giuseppe and could not recommend it more highly. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and helpful. We booked through the monastery itself (it was cheaper than using a booking agent) and had no issues communicating...More
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.
