Castello can be described as the 'fish tail of Venice' due to its interesting shape, and is probably the most varied of all of the city's districts. Its differences can ultimately be broken into two parts: the west side of Castello is all about glamour and houses some of the most exclusive art, architecture and monuments, while over east it is all about working-class residential areas more interesting to those looking for a glimpse of 'everyday' Venice. The best way to see the contrast between the east and west is to take a walk along the canal. This way, a view of Sant'Elena Pine Forest and the public gardens (Giardini Pubblici) can be enjoyed, as well as fantastic views along the shore towards the Palazzo Ducale and St. Mark's Square. Castello has some historic pockets which are certainly worth exploring, even if they can sometimes get busy with tourists. Some of the best attractions include the Gothic-Renaissance San Zaccaria Church, Santi Giovanni e Paolo which is one of the most important churches in Venice, and Arsenale, Venice's historic shipyard.
