Food and drink
Venice offers a wide range of eating options from local snacks to elegant and world-famous restaurants where you can dine well and experience local cuisines. The terrace restaurant of the Danieli offers some of the best tables in the city, with incomparable views over the Venetian lagoon, and is perfect for a celebratory meal. Seafood features widely and there are numerous high-quality fish restaurants with a dazzling collection of the day's fresh catch. Wash it all down with the wonderful array of local wine on offer, produced in the Veneto region.
For those with a sweet tooth, the windows of the old Venetian bakers hold delights such as spiced pastries and almond-encrusted tarts. The Burano islands are home to the busolai, sweet S-shaped biscuits with a hint of aniseed, while the rich tiramisu is the most famous of Venetian desserts.
The streets just off St Mark's Square are a haven for those looking for designer fashion, with shops such as Lois Vuitton, Bulgari and Versace, whereas the Mercurie and the streets between the square and the Rialto Bridge offer more affordable shopping opportunities.
Alternatively, pick up some of the regional specialities such as the fabulous Murano glass products; head to the island of Murano itself to see the glass-blowers at work. Look out for locally crafted painted carnival masks and hand-painted fabrics.
