Overview

Enjoy a really special tour of Venice: explore the Castello district and dive into the real Venetian life.

In this area you will be able to discover the traditional Venice: the narrow calli and the small shops contribute to the creation of a charming atmosphere of the past. You will start your tour from the Arsenal area.

Admire the massive Venetian Arsenal from the outside, a complex of former shipyards and armouries clustered together.

Visit the Ship Pavilion, a detached section of the Venice Naval Historical Museum hosting a collection of historic ships.

Continue exploring some beautiful churches and a really interesting building which host a unique collection of original paintings.

During the tour, you will also have the chance of passing through some characteristic spots, some places off-the-beaten-track rich in art and history.

For anyone with an interest in boats this tour is a must. I really enjoyed seeing the boats and obviously this was only part of our tour. The narrow streets with their charm were wonderful to walk around.

We saw parts of Venice we wouldn't have visited and learned much that we didn't know before. Our guide was an enthusiastic advocate of the city and very well-informed. We saw the Ship Pavilion and really enjoyed all of the side streets that were not so touristy. Thank you for providing such a unique tour.

Our guide was really easy to understand, and very knowledgeable. This tour avoids the typical tourist areas which is great as we already had tours planned for everywhere else. It was great going through the maze of streets in the Castello district and visiting some lovely little shops. The boats were great to look at and the whole trip was excellent.

5 STARS! I booked this tour online as my husband and I really wanted to see where the Venetian ships used to be made. This great tour not only covered the Arsenal, but also we explored the charming Castello district. Our guide was terrific and I highly recommend this tour.
