Top 3 houses for sale in castello venice

It is the only Venetian sestiere that does not directly overlook the Grand Canal, yet inside it holds history, timeless architectural beauties and homes for sale that are really worth discovering.

Not everyone knows it, but the sestiere of Venezia Castello, besides being one of the most expensive to buy a house, is also the largest and most visited, along with Dorsoduro, Cannaregio and San Marco. It may be due to the presence of the medieval fort built on the island of San Pietro, which attracts the sudden looks and snapshots of the many tourists. It will be for the famous Arsenale or for the timeless charm of the Venice Biennale, the cultural institution that organizes one of the most anticipated events by all Italians and not only, namely the Film Festival.

In this area so coveted there are three architectural pearls that exude luxury and splendor. All are in the Engel & Völkers Venice catalog and, carefully, they are all still for sale.

Let's discover together these 3 houses for sale in castello venice, along with the reasons that make them so indispensable.


A long walk through the streets, an aperitif with a view of Piazza San Marco and then straight home, in this refined and elegant apartment in Campo San Zaccaria that welcomes us with its ceilings over 3 meters high and its precious Murano chandeliers.
In short, the perfect evening for those who love the postcard-like panorama of Venice at sunset, but without having to give up their dream home.

Between one aperitif and another, remember to visit Bellini's frescoes inside the Church of San Zaccaria. The church is only a few steps away from the apartment.


What is it like to live in one of the most beautiful buildings in Venice? To find out, it takes just 1,600,000 euros, the amount you need to win this fabulous property within Ca ’Salvioni, a few steps from Piazza San Marco. What makes it so prestigious? Probably his story. It seems to have been designed by Michelangelo's most famous follower, Jacopo Sansovino, who filled it with precious stuccoes in all the rooms of the house. But in our opinion the peculiarity is another, the location, which offers its owners a 360 degree view of the most beautiful Venetian works such as Rio dei Greci, the Church of San Giorgio dei Greci and a glimpse of the bell tower of San Giorgio.

If, on the other hand, the idea of ​​staying indoors does not convince you, we advise you to reach Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo - in calle Barbaria de le Tole - to visit the last dwelling where the most famous seducer of all time lived: Giacomo Casanova.


If you had to choose between ostentatious beauty and absolute comfort, what would you choose? The correct answer is only one: both. This is what must have been thought by the one who designed this dwelling on the water, one of the most sought after homes for sale in Venice Castello promoted by Engel & Völkers Venice.

The central location is not enough - the apartment is a few steps away from the Rialto Bridge - or the refined and elegant style that characterizes the entire building. To make everything even more perfect there is also an elevator, a comfortable Jacuzzi installed inside the private bathroom adjacent to the second double bedroom and a large terrace of about 10 square meters.

And speaking of Rialto, did you know that the current bridge built by Andrea Da Ponte was considered futuristic and fragile at the time of its construction?
Everyone thought it would collapse within a few years, but over 400 years have denied the bad gossip.
The bridge still resists ... like our desire to visit and live in Venice. So why settle for just any other home when you can choose the best? Ask Engel & Völkers for available houses for sale venice.
