Why choose Hotel al Codega?
A fun fact
In 1450, following an increase in violent crimes in the Venetian streets during the night, a law was approved forcing people leaving their houses to bring a light with them. Hence the figure of the “codega” was created, the civil servant with a lamp who accompanied patricians, wealthy merchants and foreigners throughout the city streets.
The term “codega” may derive from “cotica”, the skin used to ignite the flame for the light, or from the Greek “odegos”, or “guide”.
