Francesca our guide was so sweet and clearly loves Venice. It was great seeing all the special spots and tasting the local foods and wine. There is NO way I would have found some of these places on my own or known what to try. I also learned a ton about the city. My only criticism was it would have... More

After all the churches, museums, etc. you need to experience Venice like this. We booked the cicchetti and wine tour with Francesca. She was delightful. I think we had a total of 10 people. It was a great group of people. I felt that we got to learn about Venice from locals on this tour. There were several stops for... More

This was the best tourist tour I ever joined in my whole life. Elisabetta was a great guide and she showed us a totally different image of Venice. Without her we would have never seen the beautiful alleys and small restaurant. Besides the interests information about the city, the food and the wine was delicious as well (in fact I... More

The wine and cicchetti tour was a great way to see hidden Venice, and enjoy good food, a little wine, and learn about the history of this fabulous city. You meet some very interesting people too!

My friend and I had a great time on our urban adventure tour. Our tour guide Simona was excellent - super informative and super fun. Afterwards, she spent the night with us sinking and made sure we all got home safe. I would definitely recommend this, very much worth it. However it does depend on which group they place you....

My fiance and I were in Venice for 3 days. We were lucky enough to get a private tour, because no other had booked at our time slot. The tour guide was very enthusiastic, spoke very good English, and had answers on all questions we fired her way. We were truly full of food and drinks after this tour! Would... 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.
