Today the wells are all closed, but their real ones still make a good show of themselves. In total there are really hundreds.
Lovely place in the street labyrinth in Venice. It is out of the tourist crowd and very quiet. The place is quiet big with no shops around so it is really a traditional one :-) We really enjoyed going there.
Small Venetian square with a restaurant and charm. It is a pleasure to sit here in the evening and watch Venetians.
