  • Very impressive monument in a pleasant piazza. Fascinating and extremely imposing statue. Truly a great photo opportunity and not to be missed if in the area.  more »
  • This is a very neat statue in a very central location. We used it as a meeting point since it stands out.  more »
  • The great Bartolomeo Colleoni bergamoleader of Ventura for years in the service of Venice at his death left a bequest for a statue of him to be placed in St. Mark.The assignment was entrusted to the Florentine Verrocchio who was inspired by the Donatello and Marcus Aurelius in Rome. The author of the second equestrian statue of the Renaissance and the Verrocchio who died before bringing it to fruition, which the Venetian Leopardi did. The statue is imposing-3.95m-but expresses dynamism for a raised paw and for the position of the legs of the Colleoni. It is placed in Campo San Giovanni and Paul and placed on a high plinth makes a beautiful figure in the presence of the grandeur of the basilica the St. John and Paul.

  • A nice place, statue of a guy on a horse. It’s cool.
  • The statue itself is interesting from a technical and historical perspective but it sits in a lovely square near the hospital, where locals gather in the evening and children play on their bicycles. The restaurants on the square are decently priced and good and of you're here, walk inside the hospital and admire the building.
  • Intersting monument from the static persepctives - it one of the first to put horse on a 3 legs
  • Ok statue of a rich general who gave all his land and money to the government of Venice IF they put up a statue of him.
  • Great view
