This is the second post of our new projects (cf. here) after the first one published in April about Frank Lloyd Wright and the Masieri Memorial. We are not moving far from the previous one since we will talk about a well-known, worldwide famous, bridge: Rialto Bridge.
Dear friends welcome back to our blog,
Venice is full of commonplaces: love, gondolas, Rialto and nice sunsets are the most abused stereotypes about this fantastic city. However, as Nancy Kress stated: “A stereotype may be negative or positive, but even positive stereotypes present two problems: They are cliches, and they present a human being as far more simple and uniform than any human being actually is”.

Before setting off on a trip to Venice for the Festa del Redentore, we made ourselves a must-see list. There were so many things that we wanted to look into: museums, restaurants, entertainments, monuments, landscapes, etc… One thing we learned is that there is no such thing as useless as a list to planning a trip to Venice. Unlike any other city, it’s important to get lost in Venice.
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!
This Sunday, our idea was to enjoy a relaxing night in Venice, avoiding crowds and folks.
For this reason, we chose to stay around Sestiere Santa Croce, which is cool and near the train station, the perfect choice to chill out.
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.
