It is very easy for the San Marco Square to get flooded during storms and heavy rain due to the fact that it is situated not so high above the sea level!
Hopefully it won’t be so severe when you visit Venice during the winter holidays!
The Bridge of Sighs connected to the Ducale Palace on St Mark’s Square in the city of Venice overlooks the lagoon and the picturesque San Giorgio Maggiore and caused prisoners to sigh when they catch their last glimpse of freedom as they pass into their cells in the prison from the courtroom of the palace.
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.
You can enjoy an iconic Italian pizza in any Venetian restaurant or eatery, however if you are touring Venice you must try the traditional Venetian cuisine! You can order the Sarde in Saor, which is composed of fried sardines with onions and pine nuts in a white wine vinegar marinade.
