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.

photoThe 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.)
