Lively and Great Value Area

This is not far from San Marco providing you don't get lost and all venues are great value, Drinks and food are cheapish and some neat little shops.

This campo is a breath of fresh air after hours in the narrow Calle and canals, with a great sense of space and is a prime spot to sit and drink an aperitif.

Our local host is a college student and she showed us the campo. She said that she and her fellow Ca Foscari ( Univ of Venezia ) students come here to socialize/drink.

Our hotel was within walking distance and there were so many nice restaurant inbetweeen, so we were here on several occasions. My only regret was dining at the Restaurant Santa Margherita - that was just sad! But hanging at a cafe wathcing the life, enjoying there was not too many tourist - that I really, really liked.

First two nights in Venice felt a little quiet, so we decided to head here on a recommendation. Great at night, bustling square with hundreds of people about. Drinks are reasonable a glass of wine was €2.50, went from here to the Fish Market near the Rialto which would recommend also, both places for a good atmosphere at night, if... More

Lived in the area for about a month, Campo Santa Margherita is great for people watching (true) but if you plan to rent or stay at a hotel in the area, my observations follow about Campo Santa Margherita and environs: Best place to eat there is the AL BOCCON DIVINO OSTERIA CICCHETTERIA on the west side of the Campo on...

All the other reviews are spot on for this square, it's so much better than the typical tourist areas. There are lots of bars and restaurants, but also every day shops and market stalls selling fresh fish, fruit and veg. There's a bar on one corner which we stopped at a couple of times for a relaxing drink, unfortunately I... More

This wonderful square allows you to see how the Venetians live. From children riding their scooters to kicking balls and their parents shopping at the fishmongers, fruit stalls or buying beautiful flowers for their apartments. Children meet up and play together in what would otherwise be their back yard and owners take their beloved dogs for exercise and to gossip... More

One of our favorite places in Venice is the Campo Santa Margherita. For us, the fact that it's a little off the path in a slightly lived-in neighborhood is a definite bonus. Anyone can do what everyone does; discovering the substance of a unique city hidden behind the tourist places is special. The campo is surrounded by homes and shops... More

Hidden a little away from the crowd, this campo is a perfect spot for a quiet and ambient break. The area is surrounded by pretty buildings and a selections of restaurants and bars. Stroll around, make your choise, and enjoy the tranquility as you go by.
