The Venetians

How expensive can an apartment in Venice be? What about garbage collection? Where do children go to school? Is the water potable? How were the foundations of the houses built? Is it possible to ride a bicycle? This tour is dedicated to the curious ones, from 3 to 99 years old!

We start our walk in Campo S. Bartolomeo, near the Rialto bridge, we visit the market, discovering a variety of fruits, vegetables and fish with weird local names. We observe the daily routine in one of the liveliest areas of town, the chit chat of people, the shouting of vendors, the big boats maneuvering in the small canals, the impertinent flights of seagulls. We move into the intricate and less crowded maze of nearby streets reaching Campo San Polo.

According to the time we can taste a ‘Spritz’, the local aperitif and then cross again the Grand Canal on a Gondola-ferry, the one used by Venetians nowadays. The walk ends back in the district of San Marco.
