This visit was on a rainy day in February, to a deserted small park with not much going for it. However I have wonderful memories of this park from my first visits to Venice when I was much younger (and had no money!) It's a...More

We met our tour guide in the gardens so had a look around. On the plus side there are plenty of benches and shade so good if you want to chill from the bustle of Venice. Other than that it felt like any other small...More

There is nothing special about the garden. With so much to do and see in the vicinity the garden is best avoided. In the period of Napoleonic rule (1806- 1814), the old Terranova granaries on this site were demolished to make way for these gardens,...More

Small gardens that are nice to walk around with a lot of benches. Not a huge amount of pretty gardening, mostly hedges and grass from what I could see!

When you walk south towards the water from St. Mark's Square, make a right along the shore on Riva degli Schiavoni; within a couple minutes, you'll find the tiny Royal Gardens (Giardinetti Reali in Italian & sometimes called the Palace Gardens). The gardens once belonged...More

The fact that the Royal Gardens are very close to Piazza San Marco and to the Grand Canal, my first thought was that I will find a nice and relaxing park, but indeed this small place seemed to me very poor, without any nice plants...More

This is a small urban garden, located between Piazza San Marco and the San Marco-Giardinetti Vaporetto stop. It's a nice place to take a quick break, to sit and review your route or guidebook before setting out on your walk around Venice, to picnic or...More

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

criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
