Riva degli Schiavoni

Recommendation by Lemi

The festive crowd from Piazza San Marco spills onto Riva degli Schiavoni. The waterfront promenade overlooks the Venetian Lagoon, so you’ll be able to shoot the gondoliers as they come and go with passengers. In centuries passed, the harbor would welcome merchants and fishermen from nearby countries. Today, dozens of gondolas and water taxis dock at the shore. In the background, San Giorgio Maggiore stretches out across the water. Keep an eye out for its iconic church—you can’t miss it!
