Castello District: The Secret, Real Life in Venice
The Greek Church, Scuola of San Giorgio degli Schiavoni, Backstreets and Historical Sites in the Old Shipyard Area As a great maritime power, Venice was an international emporium that brought together a host of ethnic groups and cultures. Evidence of this can still be seen above all in the area close to the Arsenale, the State Shipyard where galleys, the pride of the Venetian fleet, were built and fitted out.
We shall take you through the labyrinth of backstreets, to discover secluded art jewels such as San Giorgio dei Greci, the oldest Greek Orthodox Church in the West, and the Scuola of San Giorgio degli Schiavoni, house of the Dalmatian community, a small gem decorated with canvasses by Carpaccio. This is a delightful walk where you can still savour true Venetian life.
