We started our journey by flying into Venice for the night. Winter and spring are always my favorite times to visit Venice, when the city is visible and not overrun with tourists. It’s when the Venetians are there and it feels more authentic and beautiful!
Since we have been to Venice many times, we decided to do a food and wine tour through the city, stopping for wonderful Cicchetti and glasses of wine at the best local spots, all in the expert hands of our sommelier and guide.
Here are some of the stops, snacks, and sips we enjoyed on this lovely arrival day:
There are many magnificent hotels in Venice. This visit we stayed at Ca’Sagredo, a former palace belonging to an important noble family. Such character, grandeur and history!
We were so happy to learn about Pane Vino (there are two completely un-related so make sure you are heading to the correct one) and you will be treated like royalty by the husband and wife team who run this delicious little place.
Next we headed off to ski the Dolomites, which you can read about in this blog post!
