And, don't miss a little tour with a gondola on the grand Canal!What's your favourite restaurant?I regularly go with my friends or colleagues to Cicchetteria Venexiana da Luca e Fred.

La Zucca is also a very good restaurant.What's your favourite club or bar in this city?B-bar is always fun. I've been going to this place since I was young, but in the meantime it has become more trendy. It's a very popular nightclub where top DJs regularly play. Their customers are very diverse. If you want take it a bit easier, Bacaro Jazz is also recommended. Order a cocktail and enjoy the live jazz music.What's your favourite area or street in Venice?Castello is my favourite area. This place is quite quiet and it has wonderful parks and squares like Campo Zan Zanipolo. During your city trip it's always nice to have a walk on the Riva degli Schiavoni.What place is the most fun for shopping?Mercerie is the best place for extensive shopping. In the main street, you find big fashion brands, but in the side streets you will find interesting, small and unique shops. If I quickly need something, I would go to Coin. This enormous mall has a bit of everything!Which one is your favourite shop?I frequently go to Coin for clothing, but I also love delicious food, so I regularly go to the Rialto market.

Here you will find the most amazing combinations with chocolate.Where's the trendy lunch spot?Ardidos is very popular and a lot of fun, where I regularly drink a cup of coffee. If you want to have a more quiet lunch, you should go to Cantina Vecia Carbonera. In this café, you can get delicious paninis and crostinis.
