Beeing invited away fram the "zombie zone" And the most bussiest streets of Venice. Our guide Elisabetha was fantastic and gave us a lot of userful information. The tour was done with a small group of 10 persons. We Even crossed the Grand canal standing up In a traghetto gondola. We visited 5 different Bacari wine bars, and served both... More

We did the walking tour that included stops at various taverns for wine and cicchetti (little bites like tapas). The weather that night turned out to be attrocious...chilly with heavy rain and wind! But we braved it and our guide, Elizabetta, was there as scheduled and she endured the nasty weather as she waited for new arrivals while we huddled... More

I absolutely loved our tour of Venice with the hilarious Elisabetta (actually, she WAS the highlight of the tour!). The personal touches and stories added as well as the interesting tips made our brief stop over in Venice worth it. We got heaps of insight into how the locals live and eat and Elisabetta ended the tour answering all our... More

We did this lunch hour wine and cichetti tour with Elisabetta as our guide. She is passionate about her city and the promotion of small, local businesses. There were 5 couples and we had a lot of laughs together. All of the small snacks with accompanying wines were delicious and well matched. We were served wines of the region that... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
