  • One of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Venice. Very cozy and authentic with less people than in San Marco. It's very nice to take a walk and explore the setting. There are some very nice restaurants and food-shops here. I would come here every time I visit Venice!

  • Beautiful area of Venise. Close to San Marco. Bars and restaurants all close but very calm in the evening

  • A Venetian delight. The monument has stood the test of time for a long while.

  • Picturesque, a great way to see Doge's Palace and St. Mark's Basilica from another perspective.

  • Less crowded than San Marco and well worth a look around.
