My husband and I had this great experience of finding out what kind of places and food the real locals visit and eat. Our guide Elizabetta was knowledgeable, funny and nice. The company was international and extremely pleasant. We met new friends and it was really the evening to remember!

Our guide, Elisabetta, was an excellent host. She didn't hurry anyone and took time as a local. to show us 'her' Venice. We went on our first day in the City and felt this trip gave us a good background so that we didn't feel so much like a tourist. She took us to bars we would never have found... More

Simone did an excellent job connecting and communicating with them. The tour took us off the beaten path and we learned some great history drank some strong coffee and... More

Wonderful evening discovering the 'real' Venice going off the beaten path and eat and drink where the locals go. Our guide Yolanda was charming and informative telling us loads of fascinating facts about Venetian culture and history. The evening was so much fun meeting lots of new people who become firm friends by the end of the evening. Must not... More

We had a wonderful dessert / coffee tour in Venice. We started our tour at 9:30 in the morning. Our guide brought us to locally owned, delicious spots throughout the city. We walked through neighbors in Venice that we probably would have missed and had a wonderful historical dialogue with our guide along the way as well.

Staying in San Polo

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood. 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.
