25. While you might go to Italy craving pizza and pasta, seafood features heavily in the Venetian cuisine. Take advantage of the fresh produce specialties to eat like a local! Save the pizza for Rome.

26. Do it like a local and snack on cicchetti (small snacks) at a bàcari (bar). You choose from a selection of hot and cold small plates at a counter that range from €1 to €5. They are delicious (and very wallet-friendly!) Add a glass of spritz, and you could be mistaken for a Venetian!

27. The Cannareggio Jewish ghetto is a must see, but in particular, we love this neighborhood for tiny authentic bars and restaurants. You’ll also find lots of great restaurants in the foodie hub of San Polo.

28. You will have the best meatballs of your life at local haunt Ca D’Oro “Alla Vedova” in Cannareggio. (calle del Pistor no. 3912)

29. There are plenty of amazing gelato shops in Venice, but our favorite was Gelato Nico, along the Zaterre in Dorsoduro.

30. While on the island of Torcello, have lunch at famed Locanda Cipriani. It has hosted countless movie stars and royalty over the years, so it’s only right you enjoy their hospitality too! Go on a sunny day, sit in the al fresco courtyard and splash out on an elegant lunch in the sunshine. One of my favorite memories from Venice is the long lazy lunch in the sun we enjoyed at Locanda Cipriani. It was elegant and understated, and not ridiculously overpriced for such a wonderful meal.

31. While we’re on the Cipriani subject, Harry’s Bar is a must. It certainly falls under the “overpriced and full of tourists” category, but it is steeped in history, and they invented the Bellini! It would be a crime not to pay your respects to the masters of prosecco and peach purée.
