At an easy reach from the public boat stop and right at the back of St. Marco’s church, Ca’ Luna is located in the Sestiere of Castello in a secret part of the city, so mysterious and silent that you feel in a different world!
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri of Venice. The district grew up from the thirteenth century around a naval dockyard, which became the largest naval complex in Europe (called Arsenale), and the monasteries in the north of the quarter. It was later altered by Napoleon, who planned what are now the Biennale Gardens.
Most interesting attractions in Castello are the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo build in 1368 hosting 25 dogi’s graves, ancient leaders of the Serenissima, the church of San Giorgio dei Greci, the Campo Santa Maria Formosa, the Church of La Pietà and the Church of San Zaccaria.
In the area, are also located the most beautiful and picturesque Venetian palazzi, like Palazo Quercini Stampalia.
Not to be missed in Venice:
Basilica of San Marco: overwhelming and seducing church, with its “campanile”, that you must climb to enjoy the most gorgeous view of the city.
Gallerie dell'Accademia: proposing the world's best collection of Venetian painting.
Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari: of Venice's many gorgeous churches, this cannot be missed, with its important works by Titian.
Cruising the Grand Canal: whether seen by gondola or by water bus or taxi, Venice's Main Street is something breath-taking.
Snacking at a bacaro: the best way to taste genuine Venetian food and feel like a native, is to head for one of the typical wine bars.
Ghetto: the ancient Jewish area is one of the most striking and secret places in town.
You can enjoy this and more in our amazing city. I’ll be glad to give you more hints!
