The city of Venice was founded in the 5th century originally. It is made up of over 100 islands that are linked by bridges of almost two hundred canals that are connected to a Grand Canal that is shaped like an “S”.
Antonio Vivaldi was born in 1678 in Venice and started teaching the violin at the Ospedale della Pieta in 1703. His Baroque works allowed him to gain recognition and respect in the city and around the world.
The church of Ospedale della Pieta holds frequent mass services and even some music programs of Baroque style to this day, so it would be interesting to attend some of their events while on your trip in Venice.
The pincia is one of the oldest traditional Venetian sweets in the region; it is also known as Veneto Bread Pudding. It is usually served during the Christmas holidays and Epiphany period. It is a typical example of peasant cooking using basic ingredients to come up with a delicious treat.
For a more romantic setting, hire a gondola just for the two of you and sail across the Grand Canal of Venice on your honeymoon.
The Venetian gondola is shaped like a banana if you think about it! However, this shape was actually developed in the 19th century by Tramontin.
If you go on a gondola ride while exploring Venice, you can see many landmarks and historic monuments that you cannot see inside the city!
