Ernest Hemingway

Spring, time to discover Venice and its Lagoon, on the trail of Hemingway in his favorite places between Burano and Torcello… The legendary Locanda Cipriani and the wine estate Venissa in Mazzorbo… and much more between gastronomy and nature…

Feel the silence of the incredible landscape of the lagoon, where the world and noise seem far away. Let yourself get carried away by the peaceful atmosphere which inspired Hemingway in his novel ‘Across the River and Into the Trees’.

“Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world"
Ernest Hemingway
