Good food contributes to the good memory of a trip. Knowing Venice also means trying its specialties, experimenting with typical dishes of the lagoon tradition, experiencing a journey of the taste that is only possible here. Not only fish, not only famous chefs, instead we are sure you are going to appreciate the bàcaro (bar) of the neighbourhood where you can grasp the real Venetian lifestyle. Do not forget the addresses of some deli shops where to buy and taste the best food and suggestions for a tasty break form breakfast to the evening drink.
