The best thing about the property is its location. It's just about 5 min walk from San Marco which is the heart of the city. Was very helpful since we would be in the San Marco square till late in the night (it's an awesome...More
B&B Arabesque has 3 rooms to rent - all Arabian themed. We stayed in the Marrakesh room - it had dated, but kitsch and themed furniture. Free wifi and breakfast (cereals, store bought pastries, yoghurts etc), 1 bathroom between 3 rooms (which we found difficult...More
The Arabesque is about 6 minutes walk from San Marco, in a quiet small street. There 3 rooms to be rented with good continental breakfast. The bathroom is in common use, but very clean, as the BB itself is. Paola is a very nice host....More

Very near Piaza Saint Marco and water bus station. Clean bathroom. Don't trust Google maps on the locations, turn on calle de L'arco detta bon, it would be great to include this in the directions template that Paola send to us.
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.
