I took the white chocolate & nuts crepe, it was very delicious! Nuts were toasted and the Chocolate has done milky flavor as well. Very good!

I am honestly puzzled by all the great reviews for Fontego delle Dolcezze. The only good thing going for it was the service - fast and friendly. But the gelato itself was appallingly bad - watery and sugary with clumpy texture and no flavour at...More

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
