I’ve posted this rather odd-looking palace particularly for its charm. The 15th century Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo is well known for its spiral staircase ‘Scala Contarini del Bovolo' (Staircase of the snail; because of its shape). The staircase is actually in the courtyard.
Doorhead of the Palazzo:
For centuries this palace was the home of the powerful Contarini family. The palace is located in a rather secluded part of Venice..less traveled, if you wish. I’ve heard that staying here is like reliving history. And because it’s in an older section of Venice (Castello) it still holds its fascinating feel. From the top of the staircase you can enjoy a panoramic view of Venice and its historical homes.
