One of the student hotspots in Venice is Al Parlamento near the Ponte delle Guglie and the University Ca’ Foscari: One of this cute tiny Venetian bars that serve good coffee, aperitivi and sandwiches.
It’s location is very central (but not directly on the touristy Strada Nuova) and the interior of the bar neat and kept in a modern nautical style (ropes everywhere).
In summer you can enjoy your Aperol Spritz outside at one of the tables alongside the Fondamenta or you just grab a drink and continue to the far northern end of the Fondamenta (where you’ll find the university, thus the opposite direction of the Ponte delle Guglie) to enjoy the view over the laguna, the boats that pass by …
During carnival it’s one of the best spots to assist the corteo acqueo that inaugurates the carnival season.
