"Arsenale" Arsenale Tip by steventilly

Arsenale, Venice: 12 reviews and 27 photos

by steventilly

This is in the Castello district. You can't actually go INTO the Arsenale because it's still a military zone, but you can wander around outside of it and the streets and squares close to it are quite different from the rest of Venice - a much quieter and more 'local' feel about them. One of the vaparettos is supposed to go through the Arsenale, so this is the way to get a better look inside, but this service was suspended due to works on the canal while we were there.
