Most of the page, turned horizontally, is taken up with a two-part panorama from off the Fondamenta San Giovanni east of the Zitelle church on the Isola della Giudecca.
At the top, the prospect is north across the Bacino to the Molo waterfront, with the campanile of San Marco (St Mark’s) on the left. From left to right follow the domes of the Basilica beyond the Piazzetta, the Molo front of the Palazzo Ducale (Doge’s Palace), the distant dome of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, the dome of San Zaccaria to the right of its squat campanile, the taller tower and dome of San Giorgio dei Greci, the unfinished Riva degli Schiavoni façade of the Pietà, the tower of Sant’Antonin and the more distant but loftier steeple of San Francesco della Vigna, and the lower campanile of San Martino, just east of the Arsenale.
The structure terminating the upper view is the lighthouse at the northern tip of the Isola di San Giorgio Maggiore, in the middle distance in relation to the rest of the skyline. Below, on the same scale, the lighthouse is seen again (without its lantern) on the left of the view of the church and monastery of the same name, seen to the north-east.
At the bottom left is a continuation from folio 18 recto opposite (D31825) of the view within the courtyard of the Palazzo Ducale (Doge’s Palace), showing the upper stages of the elaborate south-eastern corner of the Basilica.
