It’s a short walk to the Piazza San Marco where visitors Effort can admire the treasures of the Basilica Marcianaand the magnificent rooms of the Doge’s Palace, or sip the famous bicerìn of the Caffè Florian in the shadow of Saint Mark’s steeple, or “Paron de Casa” (the lord of the house), as Venetians call it.
A few meters from the pensione stands the Church of San Salvador, with its magnificent Renaissance interior, and home to many masterpieces, including the Transfiguration of Titian, hanging on the main altar, as well as his famous Annunciation.
Near the Church you’ll find the Telecom Italia Future Centre, location of large exhibits relating to the art and technology of communication.
