Considered one of the most romantic cities in the world, Venice captivates visitors with its mosaic of 118 small islands, connected by 417 bridges to the famous Grand Canal that meanders through the city center. The city consists of six districts with St. Mark's Square as the main attraction for most visitors. The remaining streets, streets and canals create an often confusing labyrinth. However, losing yourself in it makes up just the charm of this city. The lagoon is a suitable breeding ground for many animal species that come there to lay their eggs in the salty and nutrient-rich waters. The fish is fresh and tasty, fruits and vegetables are grown on the islands of Sant'Erasmo and Vignole with its saline soils, and the meat comes from farms on the mainland. However, the richness of Venetian culinary traditions is not only due to local products, but also to the diversity of maritime traditions and the historical position of La Serenissima as a trading post between East and West. However, it is no wonder that the city visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists is also a minefield of overpriced restaurants and tourist traps with depressing cuisine. Fortunately, Venice has a tempting selection of places for connoisseurs that invite you to eat and drink in a truly unique setting!
