Venice is perhaps my favorite place in the world – at least that I’ve so far had the chance to explore. Beautiful, unique, mysterious, she is also home to some incredible food and unique specialties. “Cicchetti” is the Venetian equivalent of tapas, and these small plates are found at numerous traditional bars and osterias throughout the city.
If you get the chance to visit Venice, don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy this fun way to dine as the Venetians have for century. Read my article “Venetian Cicchetti: The Small Plates of Venice, Italy” for more information on the history, traditions and typical foods of cicchetti.
