Sant’Erasmo

Recommendations

Sant’Erasmo is the island in Venice where the the vegetables are grown for local use. Get off at the Punta Vela vaporetto stop. Walk north via the Via de le Motte - and enjoy the fields with vegetable cultivations, the vineyards and the lagoon!

Notes from Sant’Erasmo:
Sant’Erasmo is one of these Venetian islands that fires one’s imagination. Whenever you have dinner in a restaurant which uses local ingredients, they always refer to the produce of Sant’Erasmo. The so-called vegetables garden of Venice is perfect for a half day walk away from the crowds. It is however nothing like Venice. Don’t expect palazzos, museums or shops. You will only find fields full of vegetables, canals and quietness while you’re surrounded by the stunning views of nature and the lagoon.
