« Murano: the glass island | San Giacomo dell’Orio: more than just a feast! »
Strada Nuova is one of the most important pedestrian arterial of the city of Venice.
It represents the principal street of the Cannaregio district and it connects Rialto with the Santa Lucia Railway Station. This path was built in 19th century to create a simple and fast way to reach Rialto and the Railway Station.
Before the demolition of previous buildings and this urban intervention, the narrow streets created a labyrinth, while nowadays the street results a wide and easy itinerary to cross Venice.
