Venice is a city in which art can be admired everywhere. This itinerary is to be considered principally a stroll through the artists, a walk during which you will pass through the most interesting collections, galleries, and museums.
Departing once again from the railroad station and Piazzale Roma, you will cros the Scalzi bridge and head towards the Campo Santa Margherita where you will find, during certain Saturdays of the month of September, various antique and used goods stands. Before arriving in this plaza, you will surely pass by the Scuola Grande di San Rocco where, with a mirror, you can admire the marvelous frescoed ceiling painted by Tintoretto. Next to it is the church of the Frari where you will be able to enjoy the beautifies of Titian’s work as well as that of Canova’s sculpture (inspired by the poetry of Foscolo).
Once you have passed through the Campo Santa Margherita, cross the Ponte dei Pugni (the Bridge of Fists), noted for the fact that the local residents of the two sides of the bridge, once a year, engaged in ferocious brawls, traces of which can be seen in the footmarks on the arch of the bridge. Once past the Sottoportego del Casin dei Nobili, a brothel where rich patricians passed their evening in the company of courtesans, you will reach the ““Ponte de le Meravegie” (the Bridge of Marvels).
You are in the right spot for a “goto”, a glass of typical wine accompanied by a snack of salt cod in a creamy sauce: here you can admire the sole active “squero”, the place where the famous gondolas of the city are constructed.
