Venezia: Al Parlamento
One of the student hotspots in Venice is Al Parlamento near the Ponte delle Guglie and the University Ca’ Foscari: One of this cute tiny Venetian bars that serve good coffee, aperitivi and sandwiches. Location It’s location is very central (but not directly on the touristy Strada Nuova) and the interior of the bar neat...

Pasticceria Bido
As we had been to the vernissage of the Arte Laguna exhibition (that I really recommend you to visit!) the evening before, we decided to have a walk in the city center of Mestre  instead to have an early aperitivo: One of our bar crawl – stops was the Pasticceria Bido, one of the oldest...

LaSerra
In case you’ve already been to Venice, you’ll have certainly ascertained that there are nearly no green spaces and gardens to be seen. The only exception is Castello with it’s Giardini (where the Biennale takes place), a public park that has been established under the reign of Napoleon. If you happen to be around the...

Marciano Pub: Burger
It has been a while that I wanted to present you the Marciano Pub in Marghera (near the AlVapore): a real “jewel” in the former industrial zone. The owners really did a good job with the renovation of the villa and it´s transformation into a pub: The result is a cozy Irish pub combined with...

Venezia Mestre: Forte Marghera in fiori
The Forte Marghera is – as you’ll already have guessed – an ancient fort (built in the 19th century) that played a significant role in the period of the Risorgimento – means the unification of Italy and therefore in the war against the Habsburg. (Alongside the Venetian coast – from Treporti to Chioggia – you’ll...

Squero
The term “squero” stands in the Venetian language for the workshop where the typical Venetian boats are produced and repaired: the gondole. You’ll find one of the last squeri near the museum Accademia and the Zattere at the Fondamenta Nani (Rio de San Trovaso): it’s immediately recognizable due to its alpine-country-style. Just in front of...

Venezia: Fuochi d'artificio
New article: New Year’s Eve 2015/2016 in Venice This year I stared my internet research to figure out what to do on New Year’s Eve a bit earlier and decided to publish the most original ideas here: Cenone di San Silvestro in Barca: New Year’s Eve Dinner on the water Can you imagine something more...

I guess that quite a lot of non-locals who accidentally finish in Via Verdi will be wondering about the (chitchatting) masses in front of the bar “L’Altro Verdi” and it’s neighbor the “Bacaro”: Especially because both bars – only separated by a street – are hardly noticed by day. In the evening, at aperitivo time,...

The last weeks it got quite „calm“ on my blog and as I neglected the Venetian delicacies for quite a while, I want to dedicate todays blogpost to the Venetian Spritz (“Spriss”). This drink, that some years ago passed the Alps and conquered the German/Austrian bars and clubs (for double the price) is of Venetian...

Il Palco, a tiny bar “hidden” in the heart of Mestre (Venice) citycenter, only a stone’s throw away from Piazza Ferretto. Mestre may, culturally, not have as much to offer as the historical city center in the lagoon, but when it comes to clubbing and eating you’ll be better off in Mestre. Il Palco, that...

I don’t know how you feel about it, but I’m a real „teajunkie“ (my newest is a macha tea ceremony set) and thus, when I came to know about this tea saloon/b&b I just had no other choice: I just had to go there and have a look. The Fujiyama is located in the sestiere...

Signori and signore chitchatting in the piazza. Greengrocers extolling their products. Fresh mazzancolle, schie and other sea creatures finishing in Venetian shopping bags. The Piazza Mercato in Marghera/Venice is filled with life; especially when the first sunrays entice the mainland-Venetians to leave their houses to enjoy the sun with an Aperol Spritz in the Piazza....

The Al Vapore is one of the all time well-visited bars in Mestre (or better, Marghera), even though the location is not one of the most prestigious ones as the bar is „hidden“ at the beginning of the Via Fratelli Bandiera in the industrial zone Marghera that – as night falls – is lined with...

Some of you may be wondering about all the people chitchatting, a beer in their hand, on the bridge behind Campo Santa Fosca. The reason for this crowd is the pub Il Santo Bevitore: as most other bars in Venice it’s not very spacious inside and thus the guests simply have a drink outside at...

Recently we decided to have an aperitivo in the Skyline Bar on the top floor of the Hilton Molino Stucky in Giudecca, as it’s the bar with the nicest view over Venice. The bar is very elegant and the view just stunning, as you’ll be able to see the church Santa Maria della Salute, the...

Venezia: Caffè Florian
Casanova. Lord Byron. Charles Dickens. Rousseau. Goethe. Daniele Manin. I guess that the last name won’t be known to non-Venetians: 17th of March 1848. Daniele Manin, one of the central figures in the Venetian war of independence (against the Austrian domination) was – on request of the Venetians – freed from prison and brought in...
