Project Description

The authentic cuisine of the Veneto

This food and wine travel experience also offers vegetarian, vegan or special diet recipes

Culinary culture in and around Venice has a long tradition and is the result of the intermingling and influences of ingredients from the land, rivers and seas with the transplanting of flavours from distant countries with which Venice has had relations since ancient times.
From its very beginnings, the city had to carefully manage the lagoon and its lands in order to respond carefully to the need for food and water of a growing population.
And it was precisely in those areas surrounding it and in the territories that formed part of the Republic of the Serenissima that it built up its great treasure trove of resources.
We can enjoy them just by crossing the lagoon, by boat and by bike and tasting the many products from local family farms and from
organic farming alike, all carefully selected and produced with love and respect for the environment.
