Arsenal of Venice

Interesting
Surrounded by towered walls and canals, the Arsenale has two main entrances, both oriented towards the rio (canal) of the same name. In this military zone (closed to visitors), the water entrance is marked by twin towers built in 1686. The land entrance, giving onto the square, has an imposing Renaissance gate adorned with lions. Around the Arsenale, the narrow streets and tranquil squares are little visited by tourists, making them perfect for a relaxing stroll.
