Fodor's Review

A gathering place for the island's Venetian nobility, this open-air arcade (with a meeting hall above) was built in the early 17th century by Francesco Basilicata, an Italian architect. Now restored to its original Palladian elegance, it adjoins the old Venetian Armory, now the City Hall.
