Riva dei Sette Martiri
from: Fisheye Venice
The Riva dei Sette Martiri is a stretch of waterfront between the
Piazza San Marco and the Giardini Pubblici (the park next to the Biennale art
exposition's grounds). Large yachts, sailing ships, and small cruise ships such
as CroisiEurope's Michelangelo, shown above, often tie up here.
location offers the best view in Venice if your cabin faces the water: From your
cabin window, you can see vaporetti pulling into the Giardini waterbus
stop, and occasionally a cruise ship or Adriatic ferry will go by. (Our son once
gave a yelp when he opened the cabin curtains and saw a ship looming over our
small river cruiser, Peter Deilmann's
Casanova, which cruised the
Po River from Venice until a few years ago.)
