It is the smallest district, it distinguish itself for the dense number of “casa e bottega” which means houses and shops in the same buildings. In San Polo, there is a Venetian vocation of old and noble ancestry: the pleasure of good eating. The taste for food here is common and venerated, in its simpler and popular expression too: here there are the majority of taverns and “bàcari” (old pubs) in which it is possible to find typical Venetian dishes and taste the renowned “cichetti”, small snacks or side dishes, typically served in traditional "bàcari".
