The Venice Italian School is based in the quarter of San Polo, right in the heart of Venice. Our seat is in Campo San Stin, a picturesque square with local shops, cafes, businesses and restaurants frequented by locals.
Classes take place on the ground floor (no stairs!) of an original, completely renovated 15th Century home, with two classrooms and a garden for those days which are too beautiful to stay inside!
Campo San Stin is still a residential part of the city and the beautiful Basilica dei Frari charmingly overlooks this part of town: it will be your landmark when you will visit.
The area is friendly, with plenty of bars and restaurants as well as supermarkets and local shops. There is a good number of sites of great interest – amongst them we recommend:
- The Basilica dei Frari (links)
- The Scuola di San Rocco
- The Ca’ Pesaro museum of Modern Art
- The Ca’ Rezzonico museum of 18th century Venice
Other less known but extremely interesting sites are:
And – obviously – the local food delights:
- Ristorante La Zucca
- Pasticceria Tonolo – Calle San Pantalon 3764
- Gelateria Alaska – Santa Croce 1159
