Gastronomy: Delicious Discoveries

When in Venice, foodies should start their culinary adventure with Cicchetti, the Venetian equivalent of Spanish tapas, commonly served in small, local bars known as “Bacari.” Typical cicchetti include bite-sized pieces of bread topped with a variety of local ingredients like salt cod, sardines, or fresh cheeses. A typical drink to pair with cicchetti is an Aperol Spritz, a refreshing concoction of Prosecco, Aperol, and soda water.

Next, savor the Risotto al Nero di Seppia, a creamy risotto dish made with cuttlefish ink, giving it a characteristic black color and a unique, rich flavor. This dish is a must-try for those seeking authentic Venetian cuisine.

For pasta lovers, Bigoli in Salsa is essential. Bigoli is a thick, whole wheat pasta, typically served with a sauce made from onions and salted sardines or anchovies, reflecting Venice’s maritime heritage.

Fegato alla Veneziana, thinly sliced liver cooked with onions, is another local delicacy that offers a genuine taste of Venice’s culinary tradition. This dish is usually accompanied by soft polenta, a staple side dish in the Venetian diet.

As for seafood, Venice boasts a plethora of options, given its lagoon location. Moeche, soft-shell crabs found in the local waters, are a seasonal delicacy, typically fried or prepared in other simple manners to retain their delicate flavor.

Savor the delicate flavors of Sarde in Saor, a popular dish consisting of sardines marinated with onions, pine nuts, raisins, and vinegar. This dish combines sweet, sour, and savory elements, representing the city’s diverse culinary influences.

End the meal with Baicoli, a traditional Venetian biscuit, often dipped in Vin Santo, a sweet dessert wine. Baicoli are long, thin cookies, double-baked for a crisp texture, making them an excellent accompaniment to wine or coffee.

For a truly Venetian experience, pair your meal with local wines, such as Prosecco, a sparkling white wine from the Veneto region, or Soave, a dry white wine known for its light and crisp characteristics.

Finish your culinary tour with a glass of Grappa, a potent grape-based brandy typical of the region. This distilled spirit is often enjoyed as a digestive after a hearty meal, allowing you to experience yet another layer of local tradition.

At each spot of the audio guide, we'll provide you with the names and locations of the nearest recommended restaurants based on Google users' opinions to ensure that you have the most satisfying and authentic gastronomic experience in Venice.

Transportation and getting around the city

Flying into Venice, you're going to land at Marco Polo Airport, and from there, you've got a few options to get into the city. You could take a water bus, also known as Vaporetto, it's pretty cool and offers some nice views along the way. Alilaguna is the company running this service, and you can easily grab tickets at the airport.

There’s also the option of hopping on a bus; the ATVO is a good one. It takes you straight to Piazzale Roma in Venice. If you’re looking for something a bit faster, you might consider a water taxi. They’re more expensive, but hey, you get to the city in style and it's super convenient.

Now, moving around Venice, walking is absolutely your best friend. The city is a maze of small alleys and bridges, it’s like stepping into a painting. Grab a good map or a navigation app, and you’ll be good to go. It's incredibly walkable and honestly, getting a bit lost is part of the charm.

But if you’re looking to rest your feet a bit, the Vaporetto is going to be your go-to for getting around the city as well. You can buy tickets at most of the water bus stops, and there are different types, like single ride or day passes, depending on how much you think you’ll use it.

Taxi boats or water taxis are available too, especially if you’re in a rush or just prefer a more private experience. However, keep in mind, they can be quite pricey. To hail one, you can go to a taxi station or book in advance.

And you know, you might come across those charming gondolas. They are more of a tourist experience than a mode of transport, but it’s an iconic thing to do in Venice, just remember to agree on a price beforehand.

A tour bus isn’t really a thing in Venice due to the whole city being interlaced with canals and narrow alleys, but if you’re looking to explore nearby places, you can find some tours operating from the mainland part of Venice, in Mestre. They can take you to explore nearby cities like Verona or the Dolomites.

Remember, while wandering through Venice, try to enjoy every step, every sight. Take your time to admire the architecture, the canals, and do indulge in some delicious Italian gelato!
