art and crafts
from Ponte dell’Accademia to San Marco
The route starts at the foot of the Ponte dell'Accademia and wanders through the sestiere of San Marco until it reaches the world-famous Piazza San Marco. Through the street names and stories and legends they tell, we discover lovely and unique places like Sotoportego Barbaro, Calle de la Mandola, Corte del Forno Vecchio and many more.
Along the way, we will admire a variety of shops and artisanal products, from hand-printed paper at Ebru, to glass beadwork at Venetian Dreams, luxuriously soft wool goods at Lellabella, hand-sewn garments of Puppato, gold jewellery at Fescina, and finally artistic objects at Fonderia Valese
