Calle del Fumo

Calle del Fumo (30)

If you have been looking at the Málibran theatre or the church of San Giovani e Paolo, for example, then we recommend you head a little further north and approach this area of Venice, frequented by Venetians who know how to enjoy their city.

It really is a delight to discover one of these narrow alleyways through which time has not passed, such as the Calle del Fumo; an ideal spot for a leisurely stroll, stopping to look at the balconies with their hanging plants, patiently studying the large old doors, discovering curious shops-cum-workshops and escaping from the throng with a glass of wine in a local bacaro.

Walk along it calmly and let yourself be carried away. Remember that although it is easy to get lost in Venice, it is also one of the most recommendable experiences. Because by turning any corner we can come across a spot that recalls another time and makes us think, “why does this little spot not feature in the guides?”.

At the end of the street, we reach the lagoon once more. While in the south part of Venice we have the Riva degli Schiavoni to stroll around and shop in, in the north we have the Fondamenta Nuove, a pleasant walk with much more affordable shops and restaurants. Moreover, from here we can take the Vaporetto to the islands of Burano, Torcello, Murano and even the island of San Michele, the cemetery of Venice, where you will be able to see interesting chapels and sculptures.
