Stop At: Cannaregio

In Cannaregio we find the Venice Santa Lucia station and the main street, called Strada Nova, which connects the station to the Rialto area. There is also the Jewish Ghetto, an area where the Jewish community was obliged to live in the Napoleonic era. The main shopping streets are Strada Nova and Lista di Spagna, but also frequented by young people for bars or as meeting places. Do not miss the area of clubs and restaurants in Cannaregio which is located in the northern part of the sestiere, more precisely between the Jewish Ghetto and the Fondamenta Nuove. To date, the sestiere fully represents one of the places of entertainment in Venice.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At:

The San Polo district is the smallest of the six in Venice and is much loved for the relaxed atmosphere that can be felt walking around its narrow streets; at one time, however, it was one with the Sestiere of Santa Croce. It is a very characteristic district given the rich presence of "houses and shops", or places where people live and carry out their work, as well as the variety of typical Venetian taverns that take the name of "bacari". Its name derives from the presence of Campo San Polo, the largest square after that of San Marco, and of the homonymous church in the district. Although it has always been considered a people's square, as events and public celebrations took place here, this square is surrounded by stately palaces.

Stop At: Ponte di Rialto

The Rialto Bridge is the oldest of the four bridges on the Grand Canal. It is famous for both its architecture and its history. For years it was the hub of the economy of Venice. The Rialto Bridge was built between 1588 and 1591, based on a project by the architect Antonio da Ponte, to replace the previous wooden structure, which collapsed twice and burned on various occasions. The structure of the bridge is similar to the previous ones and consists of two inclined ramps joined by a portico in the center.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Mercati di Rialto

Crossing the Rialto Bridge from San Marco, you will reach the Rialto Market, a colorful place where fruit and vegetables are sold. The market has ancient origins and has been built in this place since 1097. It opens every day, from 9 to 12 in the morning, in the Campo de la Pescaria. In summer, even more than in other seasons, you will realize how difficult it is to resist the temptation to approach the colorful boxes of fresh fruit on the market!

Stop At: Piazza San Marco

he called it "the most beautiful salon in Europe". It was built in the 9th century and paved in 1177, 100 years after its construction. Piazza San Marco is the lowest area of Venice and, therefore, is the first area to be flooded with high water. The most important buildings in the square are the Basilica of San Marco, the Doge's Palace, the Correr Museum, the Campanile and the Clock Tower.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Basilica di San Marco

It is located in Piazza San Marco, the heart of Venice, and is the main church of the city as well as a cathedral since 1807 and seat of the patriarch. It is testimony to the greatness of Venice as well as being the temple of civil life and religious faith. It extends for a length of 76.5 meters and a width of 62.60 while the central dome is 43 meters high. For about a thousand years it had the function of the Ducal Chapel and therefore of direct dependence on the Doge and the function of the State Church. For this reason it was the site of official ceremonies such as the blessing of soldiers leaving for the war or the display of flags torn from enemies. The Basilica contains the remains of the Evangelist Saint Mark, once kept in Alexandria in Egypt but stolen by two Venetian merchants. Over the centuries, the Church has undergone various transformations and has been enriched with treasures and riches, many of which come from the East, from which we can immediately notice the influence.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Dorsoduro

It is connected to the San Marco district via the Accademia Bridge. The Giudecca Island and the canal that passes between the latter and the district are also part of Dorsoduro. Right in the center of the sestiere we find Campo Santa Margherita, a space very popular with young university students and tourists, considered one of the liveliest places in the city. It is the ideal place if you want to take a break and want to taste the "spritz".
