We gathered in a square in Venice and our lovely guide Simone took us on a well organised pub crawl around local bars. Simone was great and she explained quirky historical facts about Venice and the various wine and nibbles. Good fun and well worth doing although we were all slightly inebriated at the end of the evening!

The tour was very informative and the guide was great. Loved that the wine was paired with each food and the food was delicious. No complaints.

Lots of fun and lots of good wine and food! Simona was a wonderful guide and very friendly. It was great walking around Venice off the beaten path and away from all the tourists. The group was very friendly and a good mix; everyone talked w/everyone and we didn't want the evening to end! Highly recommend this tour.

The tour starts in a quiet campo, and our guide, Simona, pointed out interesting and informative facts and features as we walked our way to the traghetto to cross the grande canal in a gondola. Then, we started the best part of the tour which was the wine and the Cicchetti!! We visited 4 different wine bars/cicchetterias in the San... More

We attended the ciccheti and wine tour on Monday 11th July guided by the wonderful Simona - a true Venetian who knew everything about the city, and a wonderful, funny, kind lady to boot. It was amazing - although we'd already been in Venice for three days and eaten a LOT, all the places we went to were completely new... 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.
