Nadál a Venessia

This is our Venetian Christmas Feast

Have you been to Venice during the most luminous season of the year? When the Piazza and surrounding streets and sestieri are festively decorated with LE LUMINARIE, the bright light bulb chains so characteristic for this quiet time?

A special Christmas time, and so refreshingly quiet and warm. Even now in 2019, when we just went through the most serious floods in a very long time


This e-book is the most beautiful souvenir of my recent stay in Venice! It's informative and filled with delicious restaurant tips, delightful images and stories I never knew and haven't seen anywhere else. There are even all the ORIGINAL recipes! Your book has been the most perfect companion and will help me recall this beautiful day in Venice forever! Thank you La Venessiana for creating and sharing it!
