Fun Facts about the streets of Venice

Fun Facts about the streets of Venice :
Most of the streets names in Venice where given by proximity with churches or shops and were usually related to professional arts, commercial activities or the origin of the inhabitants. 
Therefor there are 31 “Calle del forno”, where “forno” means "oven" and 16 “Calle del magazen”, where “magazen” means "warehouse".
How will the mailman in Venice find an address? 
Well houses in Venice are numbered according to the districts, (6 of them plus the Island of Giudecca), not the streets. Only the delivery people really knows how to move around quickly....for all the others get lost is Venice is part of the fun!!!
