The marbles, pillars, the famous 4 bronze horse statues are all some of the valuables that were looted from Constantinople in the 13th century in the Fourth Crusade and are now found in the renowned main square of Venice, San Marco Piazza.
The main Venetian staples are fish, rice, and of course, polenta!
Pasta and pizza originate from Italy and have been recently added to the restaurants’ menus for increased diversity as well as due to their popularity.
While you are on vacation in Venice, be sure to take the water taxi or water bus through and around the city’s numerous canals and witness the wonderful views of the city and its famous attractions and scenery.
There are three categories of Venetian cuisine that you will find throughout Venice; the coastal area cuisine, the plains cuisine, and the mountains cuisine. In the plains area, you will mainly be served grilled meats mostly in the form of a barbecue, along with either grilled polenta or potatoes or a variety of vegetables.
The traditional Historical Reggata in Venice starts out with a Bissone, Bucintoro, and rowboat procession on the water on the Grand Canal. This would be a great event to take your kids to when you are on your trip in Italy this September.
