The flavors of Venice

The Venetian Lagoon area and Venice are famous primarily for risotto .

The Veneto region, where Venice and our lagoon are located, is also known for the cultivation of beans and legumes. The traditional dish there is pasta e fagioli prepared from pasta and beans.

Veneto's meat dishes are dominated by beef carpaccio - thin slices of raw beef sprinkled with a mayonnaise-based marinade. The most famous cold cuts of the region are soppressata, cotechino, salami and ham from the Berici and Euganei hills.


Veneto is also rich in vineyards . It produces Soave white wine from the Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave varieties, and red Bardolino and Valpolicella. Among the regional sweets we can find baicoli (cookies with sugar), goodies (cookies made of corn flour with raisins) and crema fritta (fried cream cream).

In the past, glass was produced in Venice, but for safety reasons, in the 13th century, production was moved to the island of Murano. This is where the Museo Vetrario is dedicated to glass making techniques. The glass garden there is very impressive. It is an unusual composition that consists of colorful glass elements in the form of flowers.
