One of the oldest, smallest and most vibrant neighborhoods of Venice is San Polo. Venice’s central market was established in 1097 in the area and still exists to this day.

These are not your typical bars, but ones that focus on Venice’s culinary traditions.

“This was the best vacation that both my husband & I have been on”
This was the best vacation that both my husband and I have been on and we have traveled both locally and abroad. The individual attention to detail and experience that Italy4Real and their team have developed was what make the trip and wonderful as it was.
