The last time I observed a map of Venice to examine the northern part of Cannaregio, I noticed a tiny park in the surroundings of the church Sant’Alvise.
I was curious and searched the park on the internet: actually this park was once part of a larger property (Palazzo Donà, destroyed in 1823) and you can still find a theater from the 16th century (once used for archery, today for theatrical performances) and single arches in gothic style; furthermore there’s a swimming pool and rowing club.
It’s a public park und thus open all day long: A true oasis in the heart of Venice where you can enjoy a picnic and the unusual tranquility.
How to get there
