Here in Venice, the people have a great sense of humor and the waiter jokingly suggested that we order a second plate of clams... so that we could have a bigger portion!\n\nAside from the wonderful food, one of the unique features of Bacareto da Lele is the historical significance of the building. In the late 19th century, this area was known as the red-light district and this very bar was used as a brothel. It's amazing to think about all of the history that has taken place here and to imagine what life was like back then.\n\nNot only is this stop a great place to take a break and refuel with delicious food and drink, but it's also a chance to experience a part of Venice's rich history.
