Via del Canneto

The quarter the of San Niccolò is full of picturesque little streets but this narrow alley just off Costa San Giorgia really makes you wonder whether you were transported back in time. Via del Canneto got its name from marsh with thickets of canes (canneto) that once could be found nearby the river. The lane is characterized by the crossing arches, which were built to strengthen the houses and the walls.
