A deep covered passageway dominates the composition. At the near end of the passage, to the right side, stand a woman and young girl, both with heads covered and looking at the viewer. Looking down the passageway, light catches the timbered ceiling and figures can be seen walking at the far end, silhouetted against the bright light in the square or street beyond. A lantern hangs above the entrance at the near end of the passage.

A long street recedes at the center of the image. In the center is a flagpole surmounted by a winged lion (symbol of St. Mark, and therefore of Venice). In the foreground at lower left is a group of women seated working together making lace. Other than a man and boy at the right of the flagpole, the street is largely empty.
