L'Archivio is a bar cafe opposite the beautiful church of Frari in Venice. Giorgia, Andrea and Tiziano are so welcoming and very friendly. The snacks are delicious and reasonably priced. I recommend it.

Price when we ordered should have been 14€, when we payed it was 16€, couldn't pay with card and got no receipt. Doesn't sound like fair game to me. Sandwiches were average.

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

stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
