In the footsteps of Commissario Brunetti by Donna Leon

Take a city tour to the locations of your favourite television series and enter the Commissario Brunetti’s world, known from Donna Leon's novels and their film adaptations. Along the way you will learn a lot about Venice!
The fictional character of the Venetian "Commissario Brunetti" has been a success figure for years: discover personally on site the the wonderful film scene locations from Donna Leon's novels. It is not at all easy to find the “campos” and “palazzos” where Brunetti is often on the way, because most of them are off the city highlights and well know touristic sites. On the contrary, the films are mainly shot in a rather off the beaten path Venice, like the Questura. It is so beautiful when you find the places you fancied on TV or reading the books, from Brunetti's first cases, such as "Acqua Alta", through “Beastly thigs” or “Suffer the little children”, to the youngest, whereby Raffi and Chiara no longer want to live in Venice.

    Stop At: Campo del Ghetto, 30121 Venice Italy

    The tour will start at the Avvocatos Penzo Law Office. Here, at the cast-iron Ponte de Gheto Novo at the northern exit of the Jewish Ghetto, Avvocato Penzo studies explosive court files, from which Brunetti and Vianello draw completely different conclusions than he does.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Cannaregio, Venice Italy

    The name Osteria Bentegodi is a fusion of “Ben ti godi”, in English something like “Have a good time". True to this motto, Commissario Brunetti and his father-in-law meet in the bar for a serious conversation among men about the hot topics of women and business.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Cannaregio, Venice Italy

    In the bakery Frangipane ("break the bread") Graziella Simonato, niece of the unfortunate Signora Battestini, baked her panini day in and day out and for a short time seemed to be so close to a big money dream...

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Cannaregio, Venice Italy

    After the Commissario has realized that his daughter is a member of the radical animal protection organization Angelo Animale, the two have a discussion in this pub. Due to the murder of Professor Nava, who was formerly employed in the slaughterhouse, Chiara's so-called animal angels are now the focus of the investigation.

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Chiesa di Santa Maria Maddalena, Campo S. Maria Maddalena, 30121 Venice Italy

    The headquarters of the radical animal protection organization Angelo Animale are located in this palazzo. Two masked figures flee from the side entrance and chase each other with the Commissario and his colleagues. While one of the two escapes, the other is caught and, to Brunetti's amazement, turns out to be his daughter Chiara.

    Stop At: Rosa Salva - SS. Giovanni e Paolo, Castello 6779 Campo SS. Giovanni e Paolo, Venice Italy

    In this bar Vice-Questore Patta used to eat a couple of glasses of grappa too much in this bar. But Vianello also appreciates the bar because of the best café in town and the delicious croissants. The inspector treats himself to a panino prosciutto or a tramezzino with ham and artichoke with a glass of white wine

    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Chiesa di San Francesco della Vigna, Campo San Francesco Castello 2786, 30122 Venice Italy
