The best find from the whole two week tour of Italy. This place is cheap, offering aperol at €2.50 a glass and little fresh sandwiches at €1.50. The sandwiches were amazing, so fresh and a great choice but they sell out quickly so you need...More

The locations is good, a lot of people go there. Spritz costs 2.50. There is no place to sit and there is no restroom as well. People were moving around with the glasses but we were not allowed to bring our glasses to the canal.

All sandwiches were really great, wine was good. There is barely place to sit, but you can grab the sandwiches and wine and eat it outside.

I visited Al Merca on my last day in Venice, while on a food tour. It was AMAZING! I wish I had known about Al Merca before being in Venice. Great food and great price.

Friendly service and very reasonably priced. It's cash only, though. They have a variety of tiny sandwiches and, of course, prosecco!

We were near the Rialto Bridge and we saw this little place that was packed with people, so we had to stop and try it. Once you get up to the front of the line, you pick out the little sandwiches you want and give...More

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
