Directly after the bridge you will see a short stretch of smaller palazzi, some from the 1400s or earlier and some modern reconstructions. Though none is noteworthy in itself, together they make up one of the loveliest building ensembles in Venice.
Beyond these are the large Palazzo Dolfin-Manin, a work of Sansovino (now the seat of the Bank of Italy) and the Gothic Palazzo Bembo, the birthplace of Pietro Bembo and now one of the more affordable hotels on the Grand Canal. Near the end of this fondamenta (the Riva del Carbon) are Venice’s municipal buildings, including the 12th–14th-century Ca' Loredan (later owned by the Corner family and birthplace of philosopher Elena Lucrezia Cornaro Piscopia) and Ca' Farsetti, built by the descendents of Doge Enrico Dandolo.
