Address
Neighbourhood: San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.

GOVERNMENTAL BUILDING
Apr 2019
One of the many palaces that line the Canal Grande built in the late 1500’s. It is a 3-story building with 3 entrances along the canal; the center entry portal is topped by a tympanum and mascaron. On the 1st floor between the outer windows is a Baldi coat of arms. Atop building are two twin spires. It is currently a governmental building and we only viewed it from the Grand Canal.
