When in Venice after a long day of strolling around and looking at art either at the Biennale, Arsenale or the many galleries aside take a break in the early evening hours in one of the many aperitivo bars in town. There is not much night life happening in Venice but around six o clock you meet in a bar, chat and mangle with the venetian crowd or just let the evening begin.
