Getting Oriented

Venice proper is divided into six sestieri, or districts (the word sestiere means, appropriately, "sixth"): Cannaregio, Santa Croce, San Polo, Dorsoduro, San Marco, and Castello. More sedate outer islands float around them—San Giorgio Maggiore and the Giudecca just to the south; beyond them to the east, the Lido, the barrier island; and to the north, Murano, Burano, and Torcello.
