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.

"Stunning Artwork, Gorgeous Basilica!"
reviewed 2 days ago by SuzyQu15
A quiet, peaceful refuge from the busy crowds of St. Mark's Square. We took the vaporetto, which was a convenient way to get there since it was quite warm that day. This Basilica is filled with works of art by Tiziano and Bellini and others. We walked through on our own, although you can purchase an audio guide for a...
Great out of the way place to see dozens of large Tintoretto paintings. Also allegorical wood sculptures which were a unexpected treat. The audioguide is a MUST since there is almost no written information about the paintings; it is well done. Great to see are in the space it was designed for. Only disappointment is that many of the pieces...
Everyone knows about the canals, the bridges and the churches, but when exploring Venice you also find little gems like this building/arch. As of most Venetian buildings, it has some beautiful decorations and oozes class.
We were introduced to this little place through a Walks of Italy Foods of Venice tour. We were given a Aperol Spritz and a sampling of various Ciccheti. We went back the next day. You are given a real nice wine glass and plate even though is a small stand. Loved it.
"A local place, best one in Venice for light breakfast "
reviewed yesterday by Ouini
Many locals like this place for the quality of the home brewed coffee, for the delicious "cornetto alla crema" or "girolla" (raisin snail pastries).
A good place for simple breakfast. Good orange juices or fruit juices.
We picked it for all our future breakfasts.
A warm welcome for my 4th visit to this gem of a hotel set near to the San Stae vaporetto stop in a lovely area away from the tourist crowds. Our room in the annexe was quiet, and immaculately clean. Apologies were made for an issue with the shower as a part was going to take some time to arrive,...
I stayed here with my husband for 2 weeks and I can't say enough about this place and the people that run it. When we arrived we took a water taxi from the airport to the hotel. We were greeted at the front door and checked into our room early. Which I really appreciated after a long overnight flight. We...
Excelent localization in Venice, far from the touristic buzz, in a residencial area, the small historical charming hotel boutique is near good Trattorias and Bars. Walking distance to vaporettos and the train station. Few rooms, nice reception, and a very good cleanliness! Some bad things they can correct easily: in our room the frigobar didn`t work well, the shower hasn`t...
The hotel was above our expectations. The decor, the location, it was very clean and the staff were very welcoming. The only thing i didnt like too much was their coffee, but its not a problem since there are many good places for coffee nearby. Would definitely go back and recommend !
I absolutely love staying at Oltre ol Giardino. The rooms are great, and the staff is even better! It feels like a home away from home! Big thanks to Manuel who made sure the water taxi was aware of my delayed flight and they were waiting for me when I landed. What a great place.
