What to see in Venice in one day

San Marco, the Grand Canal, the Doge's Palace, and Rialto are without a doubt the most popular tourist destinations in Venice. If you want to get away from the chaos, we recommend a route that takes you through Venice's more unusual attractions. Where to start? The Campo del Ghetto Nuovo, in the Cannaregio district, is one of the most beautiful and little-known squares in the city; visit it on a Friday night before the Shabbat, the Jewish feast day. Looking for shopping tips? One of the best glass workshops in Venice can be found in the square.
The smallest, and oldest, church in Venice is San Giacomo di Rialto - San Giacometo to the locals. Legend says that it was built in 421 AD by a carpenter, and it can be found in the San Polo district, on the left of the Rialto Bridge.

Ever wondered how gondolas are made? If you want the answer, head to the Squero di San Trovaso, a small and perfectly preserved corner of historic Venice in the Dorsoduro district. Here the "squeraroli", specialised craftsmen, create the typical Venetian boats from eight types of wood.

To satisfy your midday cravings, we suggest a stop at one of the many bàcari, typical Venetian restaurants in the historic centre. The most famous is La Cantina Do Mori, in the San Polo district, Alla Botte is found near the Rialto Bridge, and L'Osteria Alla Vedova is one of the oldest in town. Between traditional small plates, known as cichéti, tasty baby octopus called folpéti, and mini ombre glasses of wine, what's not to like?
Ready to hit the streets again? To experience the Venice of the Middle Ages, head for the Corte del Milion, also known as Marco Polo's Houses. Tucked away in a hidden corner is the Osteria Milion, the oldest restaurant in Venice that is still in operation to this day.

Away from the throngs of tourists scouring the streets for souvenirs, there are still some peaceful oases hidden around the city. One of the most charming of these spots is the Monastery of San Francesco della Vigna, found in the square that shares its name, in the Castello district. In the two cloisters that are open to the public, you can contemplate the tranquility of an unusual corner of Venice.

    “Un soggiorno a ****(*) stelle!”

    Sono stata per la prima volta a Sottomarina, pernottando all'hotel Mediterraneo con formula pensione completa. L'hotel è davvero ricercato e curato, il personale sempre cordiale e disponibile. La stanza SEA è bellissima e la vista mare è panoramica e affascinante. Il bagno è cieco ma molto spazioso e luminoso. Avete la possibilità di prendere a noleggio gratuitamente le biciclette, con le quali andare in spiaggia o nel centro di Chioggia. La piscina non è compresa nella struttura dell'hotel, ma avrete comunque la possibilità di accedere ad una vasca convenzionata. Ha soggiornato in Agosto 2016, viaggiato con gli amici
