Scala Contarini del Bovolo - Venice
I knew right off what I wanted to post for spiral. This is an old picture that I took on our trip to Venice in 2002. It is the famous spiral staircase in Venice - Scala Contarini del Bovolo. Translated it is roughly the sprial staircase of Conatrini. It was designed in 1499.
We rented an apartment that was right on the small courtyard and overlooked the staircase. This was the view everyday from our windows. It was really spectacular on evening when there was a thunderstorm and lightening was striking the metal dome. We met our friends in Venice and spent the week exploring - walking, getting lost and admiring the wonderful and mysterious city.
If you are looking for the staircase, you can find it down a small alley off Campo Manin.
