Venice’s Castello Neighbourhood: close to history, away from the crowds

The tour across Castello will take you to the neighbourhood’s historical landmarks, such as Venice’s huge shipyard, which is known as ‘The Arsenal’.
At the Arsenal, naval ships were built and repaired for the Serenissima to develop and maintain its dominion over sea trade routes.
The Naval History Museum (Museo Storico Navale), which is the second tour destination, is located in one of Venice’s oldest granaries, within the Arsenal compound. Ship relics and prototype vessels from the times of the Republic of Venice, and the years of foreign occupation, to the more recent Italian Navy are exhibited in forty rooms on five levels. Through the Museum, you will then enter the ‘Ships Pavilion’, located in an old wooden oar factory, where civil and military vessels of historical value are displayed.
Then, the tour will take you for a Castello’s cultural walk, an outdoor visit to the magnificent churches and squares that have marked the history of local communities.
