Where to stay in Venice. Three days in San Polo.

2016-09-18 • By

The streets around Campo San Polo are a perfect base to discover the Serenissima.

Are you wandering where to stay in Venice?

Consider the area around San Polo, one of Venice’s sextiers. Venice is divided in six districts, they are called sextiers indeed. The streets around Campo San Polo are good place where to stay in Venice. The area is a little less crowded than St. Mark sextier and Campo San Polo is no more than five- ten minutes walking far away from Rialto. Rialto is in San polo district indeed, but of course is one of the most crowded and expensive areas where to stay in Venice. Moreover, being in a central position you can easily reach the sextiers like Cannaregio and Dorsoduro to find less touristic and expensive bars and restaurants. Well, provided that in Venice prices are relatively high everywhere.

Ten Italian food Instagram profiles to get inspired for your dinner (or lunch, or breakfast…)

If you like cooking Italian food Instagram is a great resource. In Italy, as everywhere, there’s plenty of food blogs. It’s enough you have a look to the website of the Italian food blog association to have an idea of what the web offers. Moreover, most of these blogs are in Italian, which makes them less useful for an English speaking audience.
My personal opinion is that what makes a food blog really outstanding are original and stylish photographs. That’s why I’m summarizing here my favourite foodie Instagram profiles. I’m often too lazy to cook something new, but sometimes a nice photo inspires me to try. Sometimes it just makes me hungry!
