  • The Riva dei Schiavoni is located in the Castello sestiere, along the San Marco basin, between the Ducal Palace and the Arsenal. Its name comes from Schiavonia or Slavonia (now Dalmatia), where the slave merchants came from with their merchant ships and who docked here for their trades. It is the most important walk in the city, although too crowded with tourists, because you enjoy a fabulous panorama (Punta della Dogana, Giudecca Island, St. George Major's Island, etc.). In it overlook, interspersed with some bridges (Bridge of straw, Bridge of Sispiri, Bridge over the Rio of the Greeks, Bridge over the Rio of Pieta and Bridge of the Ca' of God) numerous historical monuments. Among them I would report: "New Prison Palace - connected to the Ducal Palace via the Bridge of Sispires - was built in classical style between the second half of the 16th and early 17th centuries by architects Antonio Da Ponte and Antonio and Tommaso Contino; Palazzo Dandolo (home of the Hotel Danieli): in the late Gothic style of the 15th century, which has on the left, after the bridge, the Hotel Danieli Excelsior of the mid-20th century and the Hotel Danieli Casa Nuova of the mid-nineteenth century; Bronze equestrian monument dedicated to Victor Emmanuel II of the second half of the 19th century by sculptor Ettore Ferrari; Church of the Pieta: in the Baroque style of the mid-18th century by the architect Giorgio Massari.
