Sant’Erasmo is one of the least affected islands in Venice by tourism, a place where all kinds of fruits and vegetables are grown to be transported and delivered fresh to the best restaurants and hotels in Venice.  Fields of various vegetation and gardens with flowers and fruit trees.  Fishermen pulling in their nets will leave you in no doubt about the freshness and prime quality of the picnic you will enjoy.  The largest and one of the greenest islands in the lagoon, Sant’Erasmo is a sanctuary for culinary delights and an ideal setting for lunch or dinner.

Torcello is very often perceived as the cradle of Venice that once had the largest population of over 200,000 inhabitants. Now this is home for very few Venetians yet the inspiring nature and impressive buildings recall the history of Venice and attract those who love to experience the heart of what Venice used to be.  We will take you around the island, introduce you to the oldest and most interesting locations that can also become the place of relaxation for your ideal picnic experience.
