La Venessiana, founded by Iris and Lina in June 2015, is one of the few private blogs offered by Venetian residents in English. We write about life in Venice from the Venetian point of view, and virtually take you to explore secret gardens, authentic food culture and ancient recipes of the Lagoon.

La Spezeria Atelier + eguides + online cooking classes
Food and garden lovers will find more resources to explore Venice in our new ONLINE ATELIER – LA SPEZERIA offering e-guides to seasonal events like Carnival and Christmas, and ancestral Lagoon recipe books.
Have you been to Venice, or would you like to really get to know our city? VENETIA – VENICE HERITAGE, OUR NEW ONLINE COURSE, tells the story of Venice, built in the midst of a 550 km² Lagoon, from scratch. In eight steps, you will explore Venetian city secrets never told in guide books, her true history, culinary culture, botanical heritage and gardens, maps, language, artisans, architecture, design and decor.
Thirty per cent of revenues from ebooks and online classes go into social initiatives here in Venice, supporting people in difficulty and homeless animals.
