We had a great introduction to Venice on a well orchestrated stroll through neighborhoods that have not changed much in centuries. The visits to a series of wine bars for mid-day offerings brought together the unique characteristics of local cuisines and culture. By far, though, the highlight of the tour was its guide, Giovanna. She is highly articulate, funny and... More

Our Sweet Taste of Venice tour was a highlight of our trip. Our guide, Manola, was was the perfect guide: knowledgeable, enthusiastic, engaging, easy to understand, Hearing about and traveling thru the various neighborhoods was a treat. Not having to continually check our map made this a seamless progression of history and local cuisine. Thanks, Urban Adventures.

Excellent place to discover to sample exquisitely prepared local plates and located a bit away from the tourist track. Definitely worth seeking out.

I had a fabulous morning on the 'Sweet taste of Venice' dessert and coffee tour! This is so much more than a dessert tour – it is a ‘foodie’, history and walking tour all rolled in to one. It is excellent value for money – buying the individual pastries and desserts, coffee and alcoholic spritz would almost equal the price... More

Her welcoming spirit helped to blend our group so well that by the end of the evening we had made new friends who we spent the next day with touring the island of Burano together as a group.

Staying in San Polo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
