As Henry James remarked, she stands at the entrance to the Grand Canal “like some great lady on the threshold of her salon”, all buttresses, domes and scrolls. Yet many people don’t take the Number 1 vaporetto or the traghetto over here. True, the old lady photographs well enough from the other side. But visitors miss out by not crossing over – not just on an…
