Food & Drink
Venice offers a wide range of eating options from local snacks to elegant and world-famous restaurants where you can dine well and experience local cuisines. The terrace restaurant of the Danieli offers some of the best tables in the city, with incomparable views over the Venetian lagoon, and is perfect for a celebratory meal. Seafood features widely and there are numerous high-quality fish restaurants with a dazzling collection of the day's fresh catch. Wash it all down with the wonderful array of local wine on offer, produced in the Veneto region.
For those with a sweet tooth, the windows of the old Venetian bakers hold delights such as spiced pastries and almond-encrusted tarts. The Burano islands are home to the busolai, sweet S-shaped biscuits with a hint of aniseed, while the rich tiramisu is the most famous of Venetian desserts.
Where to Stay
Venice is best navigated on foot and St Mark’s Square is the focal point of the city, whilst the area around the Rialto Bridge offers a bustling atmosphere and is just a short walk from the tourist sights.
