The Edible Treasures of Venice: Discover the authentic cuisine of the Lagoon, historical spice recipes, and grandmother's soulfood recipes
WELCOME TO LA VENESSIANA!
Did you know that for more than a thousand years, spices from all over the world passed through Venice? Our city was the premier hub for luxury goods in the Mediterranean Sea: Venetians created fabulous spice mixes and even cultivated them in surprisingly exotic gardens in the Lagoon (more than 500 botanical gardens!).
Let us take you right there, into the Lagoon and secret gardens, an adventurous journey of discoveries!

FOR ME, LA VENESSIANA HAS ALWAYS STOOD OUT BECAUSE OF ITS VERY PERSONAL INSIGHTS AND REAL BEAUTY – IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL! - REFLECTING THE PERSONALITY OF YOUR INCOMPARABLE CITY. IT IS FILLED WITH INFORMATION I NEVER KNEW, AND IS A JOY FOR ME. - Janet Rant
