For this author Venice can be approached in two ways.  The first route is that which most visitors take: rampaging through the sites and experiencing much of the city in shorts, flip-flops and seeing everything through the lcd on the back of a point and shoot camera.  The second is to sink into the steady pace of Venetian life and fold yourself into the natural way of things.

Nothing achieves this better than a late afternoon lounging session outside one of the many wine bars or cicchetterias.  You will find suitable locations all over the city; especially the northern part of the city, however, there are more casual or evening appropriate venues in the West too.

Around 3pm I recommend a visit to the the area immediately north of the Rialto Bridge; just a short walk from the sweat-ridden tourists beefing their way amongst the glass and mask vendors, you enter a world of relative calm.  Tableclothes and chilled wine take the edge of everything.  Head around to Fondamenta de la Preson where you’ll find a selection of canalside locations to enjoy.

If you are still in the neighbourhood later then head around the hipster/cool “Muro Vino e Cucina” for early evening aperitivo, followed by DJ beats later.
