Campo San Polo.
The heart of the San Polo distrct, and enormous open square with a few cafes and restaurants dotted about its edges. We actually ate in one of these one evening - the Birraria 'Antica La Corte', at the top end of the square (where this photo was taken from). It's quite a large affair, with outside seating in the square, then some seating in a small walled garden and finally inside seating. It got very busy on Friday night (when we were there) and we were the last people to get seated without having made a reservation.
Hahaha - this section is headlined 'what most people miss when visiting Venice'. The answer to that is probably 'most of Venice'. We covered every inch of Venice and its Islands and there are some wonderful things to see. I'll take you through some here, but more detail will be in the travelogues.
Pic: Campo Santa Maria Nuova and the church of Santa Maria Miricoli. This is in Castello (or Cannaregio, it's pretty borderline), and was one of our favourite places. There is a little bookshop there selling some wonderful books (we bought one about Venice and its cuisine), some other shops and an ice cream cafe. The feeling is more of locals than tourists. This is one of the most beautiful (and lesser known) churches in Venice, and is a favourite place to get married, so look out for weddings at the weekend.
Next to Campiello dei Miracoli, there is the Campo of S.ta Maria Nova. This image is the union of two pics...
In the same campiello of the theatre "La Fenice", to the left there is this small venetian jewel. It's a small palace with a marvellous stairway with 4 archs.
Tintoretto's house, Cannaregio - the home of the famous Venetian artist. A beautifully picturesque old house - look for the moors head on the corner of the building.
