“Rialto , Erberia , San Giacometto square , here you find traditional and modern places . You may choose to have a glass of wine sitting at a table outside , enjoyng the view on the Canal Grande or standing in the square to make small talks . Others prefer to go at the next Campo Bella Vienna to eat Cicchetti (fingerfood) and dancing to the rhythm of the music of the nearby bar .”
