Birthplace of the famous playwright Carlo Goldoni, Palazzo Centani in San Polo houses a small museum of Venetian theatrical memorabilia. It hosts various teaching activities and also a puppet-theatre from Ca’ Grimani ai Servi, formerly part of the Ca’ Rezzonico collection. The archive and library (over 30,000 works) are of significant importance, including theatrical texts, studies and original manuscripts.

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
