Venice is more than just Saint Mark’s square!

Secret little streets out of the crowd , beautiful ateliers, antique stores, nice cafes where to sip a nice espresso after the tour, our local  street food store (“Cicchetti”-Venetian tapas).  Surely the most amazing way to enjoy a real venetian atmosphere.
