Do not forget to look in one of the quiet cafes, take an unusual type of ice cream, which is not available for sale in other cities around the world.
Gelato is so called ice cream in Italy, it is less fatty, more sweet and does not melt so quickly, which is especially important in hot summer time.
The gelato making is a special kind of art in Venice, which has no analogues anywhere in the world. Large and small gelaterias compete among themselves for the name "The best of the best", and you have to decide what gelateria is the best.
There are unique places where clients are encouraged to make their own ice cream, filling it with all sorts of additives - rum, olive oil, flavored toppings with tasteful meat or fish.
