Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo

Contarini del Bovolo

One of the smallest palaces in the centre of Venice attracts visitors thanks to its unusual outdoor spiral staircase.

It has only been open since 2016 and is definitely worth a visit. The spiral staircase leads up to the arcade, which offers an interesting view of the whole of Venice from rooftop level.
