The monumental shore of Venice

The Riva degli Schiavoni takes its name from the merchants of Dalmatia, in past called Schiavonia, who used to moor their boats here. Its large shore exposes on St. Mark’s bacin where you can admire San Giorgio’s Island, the Giudecca and punta della dogana. The views are breathtaking specially when the sky is tinged of orange, the colour of sunset.
