This is where we learned that here in Venice a hot chocolate is eaten not drunk :)
The first teaspoonful of it will instantly wipe away any exhaustion you might be feeling from walking all day. It was absolutely heavenly and it would be best...More
We LOVED this decadent chocolate shop midway between the Rialto Bridge and Campo Santa Maria! The place is a chocolate lover’s dream, with chocolate bark, truffles, squares, and all other sorts of chocolate confections. But the thing not to miss is the hot chocolate (cioccolateria...More
We signed up for a private chocolate tour and it was so much fun! The woman conducting our tour was so knowledgeable and made making artisan chocolate sound so exciting. We sampled a delicious early version of drinking chocolate with exotic spices, and sampled a...More
My wife and I managed to locate this fine little chocolate shop. They have a very good selection of individual and packaged chocolates. The place is nicely laid out and staff were very friendly. Worth seeking out for chocolate lovers.
We went specifically searching for this shop after reading about it while researching our trip to Venice. The aroma when you walk in the door is to die for. To say that my kids (ages 7 and 11) were kicking themselves for spending a bunch...More
Came across this chocolatier by accident whilst wandering around Venice. After we had salivated from just looking at the window display we ventured inside. The range of chocolate is amazing, beautifully presented with a price to match. Will definitely be on our itinerary for our...More
I wanted to try the hot chocolate after reading reviews so we made a special trip to find this place. We were the only customers and the woman serving was not particularly friendly.
The drink was nice but came in a styrofoam cup which was...More
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri (districts), and the only one not facing onto the Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime neighborhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
strong artsy current to the Arsenale area. Via Garibaldi in Castello, with its shops and bars, has one of Venice's rare straight and wide boulevards. When a large ship turns around the Lido to enter the Giudecca Canal, the startling sight creates an illusion that it will run aground right on Via Garibaldi! Families treasure Giardini near the island's tip, green with rare trees and grass, and Riva degli Schiavoni is a popular spot for Venetians to take a stroll to watch the sunset.
