Campiello Remer Venice – Between beauty and mystery

"Campiello Remer" in Venice is the best place to have an aperitivo in the center of the city. This beautiful place does have a spooky legend...

The best place to have aperitif in the center of Venice, is without doubt at Campiello Remer! Coming from Rialto, it's on the way to the Cannaregio district, hidden between the several calli (little streets) that make it a not-really-easy-to-find place.

Nonetheless, on one side of the little square you can find Taverna del Campiello Remer where you can taste delicious typical Venetian cuisine both inside, sitting at the tables, and outside with cichetti (little snacks) and Spritz or a glass of Prosecco. This is definitely the nicest and most pleasant part: I like to sit on the pier, in front of the tavern, and enjoy the breathtaking view of the Canal Grande, including also the Rialto Bridge, the Palace of Camerlenghi, Campo dell'Erberia and the long building of the New Factories.

The place, once famous because there were many family-run businesses who made oars for the gondolas, is characterized by an antique flavour: a typical Venetian wellhead in the middle of the Campiello, a masonry wall and an elegant staircase leading to a Gothic loggia.

Although the beauty of the Campiello silently hides a secret: a legend says that overlooking the Canal Grande you may catch sight of the body of a man, emerging from the waves of the canal, holding in his hands the head of a woman who was beheaded there.
