Bridge Fifteen - Ponte del Pistor o delle Paste

A 'pistor' is a baker in Italian, so it's small wonder that we found a pastry shop at the one end of the Ponte del Pistor o delle Paste. It's not exactly a fine art kind of pastry shop - let's face it, Venice isn't Paris in that regard - but it stocks a few nice sweet treats.

We didn’t have time to sample the offerings - we’re on a deadline, remember - but their goodies are, by all accounts, quite tasty.  No one knows for sure how long the shop has been there, but the bridge has been in existence since the fifteen century, so one can assume it's been around a while. And apparently it was once home to Venice’s second oldest bakery.
