Venice is divided into six zones called sestieri which date back to the founding of the city itself. Every sestiere in Venice is unique, possessing its own individual character, and is home to something special. For this reason, in the section 'Visit the city' dedicated to Venice we have decided to maintain this division.
It is interesting to know that the system of Venice house numbering is distinct for each individual sestiere and can reach into the thousands! In addition, because the numbering follows a spiral pattern, it is possible to find two houses lying very close to each other, whose numbers are vastly divergent.
