or Castle, district, in the eastern part of Venice , takes its name from a fortress erected to defend the port and beach of San Nicoḷ. Due to the presence of the Arsenal, now home of the Venice Biennale, it was the city’s naval centre and was mainly inhabited by sailors and "arsenalotti" (workers in the naval shipyards). The residents are known as "castellani". This district covers the eastern part of the city. It stretches from the islands of San pietro and Sant’Elena towards San Marco. It’s bordered by the lagoon to the north and the east and by St. Mark’s Basin to the south. The districts of San Marco and Cannaregio are to the west.
The jewel in the crown of Hotel Savoia & Jolanda is the view that can be enjoyed from the lagoon-facing building, where our junior suites are located, but also the magnificent Campo San Zaccaria where you can see the Renaissance church from many of our rooms.
