“Where are you going? Throw away the map! Why do you want to know at all costswhere you are in this moment? Right on: in all cities, shopping malls, at bus or subway stops, you’re used to get caught up by the road signs, there is almost always a sign with a colored dot, an arrow on the map telling you loadly: “You Are Here”. Even in Venice, just raise your eyes and you will see many yellow signs with arrows that tell you: you have to go that way, do not get confused, To The Railway, To St. Mark’s Square, To The Academy…just give them up, make a mokery of them. Why do you want to fight against the maze? Go along with it for once. Do not worry, let the streets to be the ones that decide your path, not the path that makes you chose the streets. Learn to roam, to wander. Get disoriented. Hang about.”
The streets close to RialtoBridge are very lively and plenty of markets, colourful handicraft shops (Botteghe) and convivial taverns (Ostarie and Bacari) for incredible and unique culinary experiences. This is a really typical and crowded area especially during the Celebration of Carnival.
In the streets leading to Piazza San Marco instead, are located most of the shops of the Italian more important fashion brands for a high quality shopping.
