A gastronome’s paradise! The ancient commercial heart of the city and today a thriving district characterised by the historic Rialto Market (dating from the 11th century) where you’ll find the famous fish, fruit and vegetable markets, a fine variety of specialist food shops, traditional ‘cichetti’ and ‘ombra’-serving ‘bacari’ (bars) and interesting emporia dotted throughout a richly atmospheric network of tiny alleyways. Home to Campo San Polo and the magnificent Church of the Frari.
