Of course, we're talking about Venice, the city of a thousand canals. Our Cesarina welcomes us to the area of Saint Zaccaria, near the church of the same name, a magnificent renaissance building dating back to the 15th century. The main tourist attractions (piazza San Marco, la Basilica, il ponte dei Sospiri) are just a few hundred meters away and Patrizia’s home is also a great starting point for exploring vicoli del Castello, a less well known - but equally fascinating - area of Venice.
The secret of the Cesarina
My family is originally from Tuscany and Piedmont, but my heart is all for Venice’s canals.
