Riva degli Schiavoni

    The name "Schiavoni" comes from the Italian for "Slavs" meaning anyone in Venice with origins from across the Adriatic Sea in Croatia and Dalmatia. The Riva has been expanded over the history of the city; initially there were piers and berths for ships to unload. Essentially the port of Venice was located along its length. Now it is a thoroughfare stretching from Piazza San Marco to Sant'Elena and the Biennale Gardens.
