Your next stop in Venice is just a few minute's walk from the Rialto area and is the Scala Contarini del Bovolo. Of late Gothic influence, the Spiral Staircase is among the most original and renowned staircases. Almost hidden, in a small courtyard at the end of a narrow calle, it rises in all its elegance. A dazzling combination and contrast of bricks, white Istrian stone, and magnificent loggias, the cylindrical staircase is approximately 30 meters (100 feet) high. Once a property of the patrician Contarini family, it reflects the timeless charm of the Venetian nobility. From the top, you can admire the spectacular view over the Venetian rooftops. If you want to visit the Contarini Palace, you need to pay an additional fee. Finish your weekend in Venice and be ready to return, as the lagoon city is nothing short of exhilarating, and each visit is a discovery of the legendary Serenissima.
