What people say

"The Michelin-rated Trattoria Al Gatto Nero is right by the waters of Burano, and it boasts a menu of homemade pasta and seafood, fresh from the Lagoon, and hand-selected daily. The establishment offers local cuisine of the highest quality, in a comfortable ambiance, in a picturesque environment. The interior of the restaurant depicts comfortable luxury with ornate and decorative ceramics presenting their creations. Their menu includes a wide range of appetizers, such as a seafood platter, first courses, which include the highly raved risotto di gò alla Buranella and tagliolini alla granzeola, second courses, which include the oven-baked fish or typical frittura di pesce. Other popular dishes include Spaghetti alle Vongole and Tagliolini all Grancevola. Their dessert menu includes Gelato, their House Cake, and Burano Sweets– all strictly homemade."
" Try the pappardelle pasta con scampi e ricotta affiumicata (wide egg-noodle pasta with prawns and smoked ricotta cheese) or the delicious zuppa di crostacei (shellfish soup)—a hearty dish that contains just the right dose of chili pepper. When sea bass, sole, shrimp, eel and monkfish are as fresh as they are there, ordering a simple grigliata mista ("mixed grilled") is always a good choice. This island and this restaurant are known for their bussolai biscotti (egg and butter cookies) served with sweet wine."
"VENETIAN CLASSICS 🏆 Michelin Recommended Old-school in all the right ways, this Burano spot is a long-standing fan favorite considered to have some of the best risotto and spaghetti alle vongole in the world. "

Mentioned in these guides

Venice, also known as the "City of Canals”, “The Floating City” and "Serenissima”, is a place like no other - charming through its intricate alleys and walkways over the canals, with no cars/scooters or traffic noise to spoil the romance in the air. Gondolas floating here and there, idyllic cozy terraces just around every other corner, Italian delicacies all over and relaxed people wandering about. Venice's culinary delights include Sarde in Saor, Risotto al nero di seppia (black squid ink risotto), Bigoli in salsa, Baccalà mantecato (whipped codfish), Fegato alla veneziana (liver with onions), and Risi e bisi. Don't miss cicchetti (small plates) and Tiramisu for dessert. Highlights: 🍾 Bellini is the name of a cocktail invented in Venice about 80 years ago. A Bellini consists of peaches and Prosecco (Italian version of Champagne). The peaches are squeezed and the juice is mixed with Prosecco. The glasses in which the Bellini is served have to be very cold. For the typical Venetian Bellini only white peaches are used. 🛶 A gondola is a traditional narrow and long Venetian rowing boat. The boat is steered by one person called a gondolier with the help of one long oar. Centuries ago, gondolas were the main means of transport in Venice. Now they have become a very popular tourist attraction, and perhaps the most recognisable symbol of Venice. Although a bit expensive (standard gondola rides in Venice have a fixed cost of 80 euros for a private 25-30 minutes tour. At night, however, the cost of a gondola ride is 120 euros for a private 25-30 minutes tour. If you desire to stay longer, tell the gondolier and ask for the price before the start of the tour) a gondola ride might just be the most romantic thing to do in Venice. 🥠Baicoli is a typical Venetian biscuit. The shape of the biscuit resembles that of a sea bass, hence the name - "baicoli" means "sea bass" in the Venetian dialect. Back in the old times, when Venetian sailors prepared for long journeys, the captains made sure to procure a lot of baicoli. The biscuits were used as bread, and because of being very dry, they could survive for a very long time. Baicoli are typically vanilla-flavored, and are sold in metal boxes, easy to transport and keep fresh for long. The metal boxes, in which the baicoli are sold today, carry a picture of Venetian men and women in traditional clothing of olden times. Other traditional sweets to try: Mandorlato di Cologna Veneta (especially at Christmas). 🍘 Frittelle - They are Venetian doughnuts served only during Carnival. They can be stuffed with pistachio cream, zabaione and chocolate.
There is so much to see and do in and around Venice, Italy that you could easily spend quite a few days here. This guide will detail MORE than enough things to do in 3-4 days in Venice and the surrounding islands.

There are options for everyone in Venice. -It will detail some amazing things to see, do, eat, and drink in Venice! -It will also detail how to take small day trips to neighboring islands of Burano, Murano, Torcello, and Mazzorbo. Why Venice? Venice is such a fantastic and romantic city.  Walking along or boating along the canals is an experience I truly believe you want to have in your lifetime.  Once you get the hang of it, it definitely feels like a "little big city".  You can walk to anything in Venice if you don't mind getting your steps in.  You can also get around by water bus, water taxi, and the famous gondolas.  You can eat SO well here and drink great wines at reasonable prices.  There are countless things to do and see here and the islands off of Venice are equally as exciting and beautiful!  This guide will detail tons of options for things to do in Venice.  Most of them I have done, I will add a few things I haven't done that I find would be truly worthwhile.  This way you can pick and choose what appeals best to you.  ***I am also available for consultation about your Venice trip and would love to talk to you and work with you to create your perfect experience!
