BACARI

Genuine Venetian jewels, the bacari are traditional taverns-inns where you can lose yourself among “ombre” (small glasses of wine) and “cicchetti” (the Venetian equivalent of tapas).

Who invented the pizza? The word “pizza” originated in Gaeta in the Lazio region in 997. But it was Raffaele Esposito, a Neapolitan chef, who in 1889 invented the famous Margherita pizza - tomato, mozzarella cheese and basil, with the same colours as the Italian flag.

Harry’s BarHere in 1949 Giuseppe Cipriani invented the legendary Venetian cocktail known as Bellini. This pink coloured drink is a mix of peach puree and Prosecco. It owes its name to the robes of a saint painted by the famous Venetian painter Giovanni Bellini.
