For more than 1300 years, plants and seeds from all over the world passed through Venice.
Surprisingly exotic and diverse gardens were created here, producing essenze (spices, herbs and blossoms), as ingredients for the most fragrant and colorful cuisine in Europe. We created our gourmet platform Essenze di Venezia for all of you who wish to dive into this unknown Venice and taste itss authentic culinary specialties.
You'll virtually explore these lush and unexpected exotic gardens, thriving in the mild climate of the Lagoon, their surprising stories and deliciuos recipes.
