San Polo

Walked from Dorsoduro to San Polo
San Polo is famous for its
huge fish market
lively bars
San Polo district on the left side
& San Marco district on the right side of
Rialto bridge
- Rialto is the oldest bridge in Venice
built in 16th-century
designed by architect Ponte (=bridge!)
- nowadays there are more than 400 bridges in Venice
Instead of lunch had a light snack
at the terrace of Naranzaria:
Prosecco Villa Ronch
Polpette de carne
& orange juice- nice & quiet terrace
before 15 Italian businesmen decided to have lunch there...
The magnificent Gothic facade of
the Ca' d'Oro
View of Grand Canal at San Polo
On Friday the weather was cloudy
& partly rainy
- not a big problem as dressed properly
