Just a short distance away from Venice, you’ll find Padua, a charming historical and university town rich in art, architecture and great food.
As enjoy an Aperitivo in Prato della Valle, one of the biggest squares in Europe, or pass by the windows of the local food shops, you’re sure to be fascinated by Padua’s food culture.
This city is home to homely dishes such as “Bigoli con sarde e capperi” – fresh pasta with sardines and capers, delicate baccalà (salted codfish) and rustic bowls of pasta and beans. Humble and comforting, these dishes are all about gathering the family around to enjoy delicious food together. There’s no better way to capture the spirit of Padua’s gastronomy than dining in a Cesarina’s home. Welcome to the family!
You can't visit Italy without trying at least one pasta dish... So we'll serve you two!
You will be welcomed into a Cesarina host's home to enjoy “Bis di primi”, two pasta recipes followed by one of Italy's most popular dessert, the tiramisu.
Feel like part of the family as you enjoy lovingly prepared regional recipes, accompanied by carefully selected local wines.
