Venetian Arsenal


The Arsenal is the symbol of the illustrious history of the Serenissima Republic of Venice, occupying an area of 48 hectares, in the eastern edge of the Ancient City. Here the ships of the Serenissima were built as an expression of the economic, political and military power of the city.

You can visit some of the North Arsenal buildings, which are open to the public. The South Arsenal, instead, hosts the Venice Biennale. Do not miss a visit to the Naval History Museum of the Navy, the most important in Italy.
