The Contarini del Bovolo Staircase
Hidden in its own little court yard, at the end of a narrow street off Campo Manin, is the elegant Contarini del Bovolo staricase. It is an example of transition from Gothic to Renaissance style architecture in Venice with its peculiar spiral (‘bovolo’ in Venetian dialect) stairs going up the outside of the building instead of the inside. From the top is a lovely view of Venice’s roofs and spires.
