Walking Around in Venice

Walking is the best way to see some of the most beautiful sites in the city of Venice. Situate yourself at the Academia Bridge near the Gallerie dell' Accademia to take a walk through the heart of the city. Find the gondola stand and from there walk towards the Rio de San Trovaso canal. Take a moment to enjoy the scenery as you cross the bridge at the Calle della Toletta. Walk along the Calle della Toletta and stop at one of the many coffee shops along the way for a delicious hot cappuccino or espresso. You will soon arrive at Campo San Toma and from there can head north towards the Campo San Polo and the Campo San Silvestro. There, you will see the Rialto Market, which is the oldest fish and produce market in Venice. Take a break from your walk to explore the market, and taste some of the unique produce of the region. Next, cross over the famous Rialto Bridge and stop at a cafe to enjoy a delicious pastry and reflect on all the fantastic things you have seen on your walk around the city of Venice.

Eating In Venice

With its close proximity to the Adriatic sea, Venetian cuisine gives great importance to using simple but fresh local ingredients. Before dinner, visit any nearby bacari wine bar for aperitivo hour, where you can sample light but savory snacks like Cicchetti. Similar to Spanish tapas in design, Cicchetti are small dishes of fried food, such as the ever-popular olive ascolane - fried green olives stuffed with meat. Variety and affordability is the name of the game during aperitivo hour, so if deep-fried isn't your thing, you can also try tramezzini, which is a crustless sandwich stuffed with any filling of your choice (think tuna, artichokes, ham, cheese, etc.). As Venice is surrounded by water, you'll have no shortage of fresh seafood options at your disposable. You can't go wrong with baccalà mantecato, a creamed cod paste served on bread, or sarde in saor, an antipasto made with sardines, sweetened raisins, and lots of wine, both rich in seafood flavor. For dinner, eat like a Venetian by ordering polenta, made of boiled cornmeal and served either as a side dish or a main meal. Once again, variety is key, as you can order polenta with a number of toppings, ranging from hearty vegetables to red meat and seafood. As for dessert, you can't visit Venice and not eat gelato - by far the most popular and tasty option around. Buon Appetitot!
