Within the Palazzo Grimani, there is the requisite grand ceremonial staircase, to lead impressed visitors up to the main floor when meeting the family. There is also this simple, unadorned spiral elsewhere in the house, which one can imaging getting far more use as an efficient way to move between floors. 2/17 Finalist - EoD

Thanks, Michele! I actually passed by this vantage point without realizing it as soon as I entered the museum… Later on an upper floor I saw the spiral, but it was roped off and you couldn't look up or down it. I was going to ask a guide if I could take a quick picture, and walking back to the admissions desk, I found this vantage point after all. #11566811
