Here we simply point out some of the must-see places to visit and they are probably among the most popular and famous of the city.

Events & Activities: Food and Wine

Even in Venice, a little 'as in all of Italy, the wine and food aspect assumes particular contours with traditional dishes typical of the area. Given the location, it is naturally predominant cuisine based on fish, but there are centuries-old traditions with dishes of pasta, meat and vegetables. If you like to eat well and you are a connoisseur you're on the right place. Only the pizza could not find some time for your maximum pleasure: in Venice unfortunately there may be wood-fired ovens to bake the pizza as usual (just a bakery in the whole city, the others are gas or electric). Be careful: find eating well on a budget is difficult, it is much easier having to spend enough to taste delicious menus.

Main dish

A cost-effective solution is represented by the "Bacaro" rustic tavern, where you can eat "cichéti" that are made with simple mangiari paying attention to the presentation to make it look more inviting to eat it. There are no precise recipes, the composition is left to the whim of the "osto", because those are hardly mangiari that are served in homes. They are usually consumed before dinner with a glass of red or white wine or to accompany the "spritz", the typical Venetian aperitif. In these ancient traditional taverns you can spend time eating and drinking as a valid alternative to the restaurant.

Spritz in Venice is undoubtedly the aperitif par excellence. It is composed of 1/3 of white wine, 1/3 of sparkling mineral water or soda water, and 1/3 of liquor moderately alcoholic, sweet (Aperol) or bitter (Campari). It is then decorated with a lemon peel or an olive green. The most popular meeting places for lovers of quest'aperitivo, becoming weekly events, are definitely the Campo Santa Margherita and the area dell'Erbaria Rialto.
