Getting out and about in Venice: San Marcuola

Hi, we discovered that tourists need as many information about Venice as they can. So we decided to build up a sort of Bible of Venice. We will create, as we go along, little chapters of each Venetian area. So please it would be nice for you to comment and add things that you think are worth to know in relation to the topic area discussed!! :-)

This time we will explore the area closed to San Marcuola  boat stop.
If you take water bus (vaporetto) number 1 from the Station the second  stop is precisely   San Marcuola.
Vaporetto, Water Bus

This area offers several tourist attractions such as:
