  • A small section (200 metres) of the Rio dei Greci canal is located between Rio de S. Lorenzo (St. Lorenzo Canal) and the Grand Canal in the Castello area. In the second half of the 15th century, Venice hospitably opened its gates to the many Greek refugees who had to leave their lands occupied by the Ottoman Empire and after the fall of Constantinople in 1453. Here is also founded in the 10th century by these settlers, the Greek Orthodox Church of San Giorgio de Greci (Chiesa di San Giorgio dei Greci) with a "falling" bell tower.

  • This canal runs behind the church of San Zaccaria in the San Marco area. There was a beautiful white church along the canal when we walked through. The bell tower of the church was quite slanted and had an impact. It was good as a shooting spot.
