Everyone knows that, due to the pandemic, this year Carnival is going to be different.

On my way to the Venice Tribunal, which is located near the Rialto Brige, I always pass by the Rialto fishing market.

If you arrive in Venice by train, the first place you will see is the Sestiere of Cannaregio (if you don’t remember what a Sestiere is or how Venice is divided read here).
If you don’t have enough time to visit the city, or if you want to see something different than Saint Mark Square, in Cannaregio you can find a lot of nice places.
Ten of them are:
1) Jewish Ghetto : it was the residence of the Jews since the law of 1516. It is surrounded by water and it has only two accesses. Today, you can still find Jewish population and it is a particular area of Venice for the height of houses and for the presence of synagogues.
Bacaro is the traditional venetian pub.
It is easy to recognize them thanks to the long counter directly on the streets. They are known for the “Ombra”, the glass of house wine, spritz, traditional food “cicchetti” (bread and prosciutto, cheese, eggs, different kind of fish etc.).
It is very common to see group of friends making a “bacaro tour”, meaning chosing different bacaro around the city, eating and drinking something different in every bacaro they visit.
Our advise is to discover and try new places as you walk through the city, which i salso the best way to discover all the bacaro around.
Here, we provide you with a list of bacaro that we tried and are worthy a visit. We will try to keep this list updated as much as possible!
Venice is known as an expensive city. With this post, we are happy to provide you with a short list of good and cheap places in Venice to eat well and drink even better, avoiding touristic traps!
In Venice and in Veneto, Spritz is way more than a drink.
It is the ideal “aperitivo” before lunch or dinner, it is an excuse to meet, talk and eat little tapas, called cicchetti, like chips (minimum, get angry if they don’t bring them), bread and local salami, small slices of pizza or focaccia or even tramezzini.
