The unknown beauties of Venice: Discover Castello

This Photo Tour is a new way of discovering Venice and its unknown beauties. We will explore hidden “calli” (narrow streets of Venice), running along the houses where famous men, who made the history of this city, lived many centuries ago, one for all, Marco Polo. Many of these old buildings hold memories of legends, tales and historical events, and are amazingly still there, true and real, in spite of the centuries gone by.

Then we shall visit one of the most beautiful “campi” (squares in Venice), and the courtyard nearby. In the same area you will see, close to an ancient, peaceful yard, a surprisingly leaning bell tower, and you will find yourself in another world and in another time.

The labyrinthic district of Castello is one of the biggest and one of the most beautiful and popular of Venice, where still Venetians live and artisans work. According to the length of our Photo Tour, we can extend our Photo Walk as far as the walls of the Arsenale and the forgotten island of San Pietro di Castello.
