Calle Seco Marina
There's nothing special about the Calle Seco Marina in Castello, and that's
one of the calle's charms: It's a quiet, unassuming street of apartments,
paving stones, and clotheslines, yet it's within a two- or three-minute
walk of the busy waterfront and Venice's largest park. The Via Giuseppe
Garibaldi, with its many shops and restaurants, is only a block away.
When you're in Venice, buy a good map (such as The Touring Club Italiano's
Venezia) and go wandering. You'll find hundreds of little streets, squares,
and canals where Venice's 56,000 residents go home to eat, relax, and talk to
each other on their telefonini at the end of the day.
