Absolutely fantastic, the Scala are so beautiful & the view from the top took my breath away , a full 360 degree view of the whole of Venice , you can see all the districts from the top, I was lucky enough to have clear blue sky which made the view even more spectacular
Count the stairs!

As you climb higher and higher in the spiral staircase venice’s Beauty unfolds. Those with physical disabilities, like me, may find the climb hard. But take your time. It’s worth the effort. And don’t look for the escalator or elevator. They’re just not their. Bring your binoculars to see the snow covered mountains.
Merita la deviazione

L’edificio è caratteristico, dalla bella e sobria architettura, con un terrazzino in cima alla scalinata molto suggestivo e piacevole. Il personale è giovane, gentile e disponibile anche nel risolvere i problemini derivanti da una prenotazione effettuata con un’organizzazione disorganizzata che non contempla la possibilità di stabilire fasce orarie per la visita. Visita consigliati sisma, ma non prenotate con Viator
