"Venice is divided in 6..." Venice Favorite Tip by venusia

Venice General: 812 reviews and 1,143 photos

Favorite thing: Venice is divided in 6 quarters called 'sestieri': <font color='green' size='3'><b>CANNAREGIO, S.POLO, S.CROCE, S.MARCO, DORSODURO and CASTELLO.</b></font>
The addresses of the places don't refer to the name of the streets ('calli'),but to the civic numbers in the quarters.

(Each quarter has got almost 5-6000 numbers.)

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
