Just a note for travelers to Venice (with apologies for not getting this posted sooner):
There is free Wi-Fi to be had at the cafe Tappa Obbligatoria on the Strada Nova between Campo San Sofia and the calle Ca d’Oro. Free. Just show up and connect.
They also have outdoor seating, great panini and tramezzini sandwiches, a few hot primi, and even a small room in the back for hiding out. So, you can fill up while you catch up.
If anyone discovers any more of these gems, please share.
(By the way, it’s just as “obligatory” to grab a refreshing gelato just down the Strada toward Campo Santi Apostoli on the same side…)
