Enjoy wine and cicchetti

The Merchants of Venice required places where they could eat, drink and sleep as well as places where they could keep their valuables. For the most important nation's trading in Venice, the Venetian government gave them whole palaces to be devoted to this. The Merchants also needed to unwind from their frenzied life and during this walking tour of the Hidden Venice, we will go to the old red light area of Castelletto.
As we venture further into the Hidden Venice where picture-postcard views show up at every corner and where you can likewise value the authentic charm of this quiet city, a long way from the crowd of tourists, where it feels as though time has ceased at the XV century. After walking through, you'll visit the great Campi (squares) of Venice - San Polo. Like a grand arena (where there used to be bullfights), with its exquisite palaces, it is a total complexity to the narrow avenues, dark passageways, sensitive bridges and modest courtyards of the Hidden Venice.
