Venice

What makes Venice one of the most beautiful cities in, well, the world? Let us count the ways… There’s Venice’s unique, lovely architecture, its beautiful churches, and, of course, the show-stopping St. Mark’s Square. But what really makes Venice beautiful is the fact that it’s built entirely on canals, so there’s no traffic or bus exhaust, and along many canals, all you can hear is the lapping of the water! To make the most of Venice’s tranquil side, consider going in autumn or even in the winter, when a lovely mist hangs over the entire city. Talking about Venice, St. Mark’s square (in Italian: Piazza San Marco) is the first place that everybody thinks about. This is the biggest square in the city and here there’s the beautiful Basilica dedicated to the Saint Patron of Venice. The floor of the square is hidden by million of pigeons. Pigeons wait the tourists that feed them with bread crumbs or seeds. Maybe the image of St. Mark’s square full of pigeons is the most famous image of this city, someone use to say that in Venice there are more pigeons than inhabitants. Nowadays St. Mark’s square is the only area in Venice called “Piazza” (which means “square” in Italian), all the other areas of this kind are called “campi” (which means “gardens” in Italian). This square is the inevitable destination of all the tourists in Venice. It is surrounded of very expensive bars, real tourist traps, where you can sit and look at a live remake of Hitchcock’s “The birds”, with just one difference: here the “victims” smile, clearly happy. Another important thing is The Doge's palace. Venetians are very fond of this palace because it keeps part of their history and it has been protagonist of important facts of Venice’s life. Venetian cuisine may be divided into three main categories, based on geography: the coastal areas, the plains, and the mountains. Each one (especially the plains) can have many local cuisines, each city with its own dishes. The most common dish is polenta, which is cooked in various ways within the local cuisines of Veneto. Other popular dishes include risotto, rice cooked with many different kinds of food, from vegetables, mushrooms, pumpkin or radicchio to seafood, pork meat or chicken livers. Among the typical seasoning of Venetian cuisine, you can find butter, olive oil, sunflower oil, vinegar, kren, senape, mostarda, salsa verde.
