It has been a while that I wanted to present you the Marciano Pub in Marghera (near the AlVapore): a real “jewel” in the former industrial zone.
The owners really did a good job with the renovation of the villa and it´s transformation into a pub: The result is a cozy Irish pub combined with some Italian elegance (but maybe it´s only the red walls that give me this impression). The service has always been excellent and the waiters/waitresses were always friendly and going out of their way.
The real football/soccer freaks will also be happy to know that they have the possibility to see the matches in the Marciano Pub (just check their facebook page for more infos); but book a table in advance as on these evenings the Marciano is always completely booked.
The Marciano is known for it’s homemade burgers (angus, beef, …) with really excellent french fries. (I think they are homemade too, but to be sure I´ll ask them the next time and will let you know!) For those of you who prefer a lighter dish in the evening there are Club Sandwiches.
Furthermore, you really shouldn’t miss out on the international and regional beers: My favorite is the Kriek Boon, a cherry flavored beer from Belgium. (Well, there has to be at least ONE beer for the ladies, right?) The gentlemen can enjoy one of IPAs.
The burgers will cost you about 15€ (depending on the type of meat you choose) and the beers 6€. Draught beers are a bit cheaper, if I remember right, but I can’t swear on it as we normally go to the Marciano to drink a beer that we don’t find everywhere in the city. The burgers are quite costly but the quality is very good and the quantity abundant; contrary to McDonald’s burgers.

Piacere, mi chiamo Beatrice!
I grew up in the heart of the Alps, in Innsbruck, and decided in 2012 to move from the snowy Tyrolean peaks to the Venetian lagoon.
The travel-bug bit me during an Erasmus stay in France and so I decided after my University studies to start a backpack adventure through Canada.
After one year I said “good bye” to the American continent and moved to Venice (What you do for love!) and searched for a possibility to combine my passion for languages, travelling, culture and reading.
The solution? Four years ago I passed the governmental exam here in Italy to become a licensed tour leader and then a tour guide. Since then I’m guiding visitors through this fascinating city.
