DISTRICT OF SAN POLO, VENICE’S HISTORIC CENTRE

Here is the ancient part of Venice, the Rialto Bridge and the Historic Market

Enclosed in a vast loop by the Grand Canal, San Polo is the smallest district in Venice but it encompasses the most lively part of the city – Rialto.  Ancient history relates that Rialto is one of the oldest inhabited centres of the Venetian islands where the first inhabitants concentrated their trade after escaping from the mainland. The name “Rialto” derives from the Latin “Rivus Altus” which means deep bed or canal, a reference to the Grand Canal which flows along its borders.
A visit to the Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari is a must.  It is one of the largest churches in Venice and inside it are works of immense artistic worth such as the Assumption of Titian and Bellini’s Triptych.
Nowadays, San Polo is a very lively district, with lots of young people, and is full of bars and cafés.  You will find excellent restaurants for romantic dinners and will be able to sit outdoors drinking wine whilst admiring the beauty of the city.
