Chioggia (Veneto)

Chioggia is situated on a small island at the southern entrance to the Lagoon of Venice about 25 kilometres (16 miles) south of Venice (50 km (31 mi) by road); causeways connect it to the mainland and to its frazione, nowadays a quarter, of Sottomarina. The population of the comune is around 50,000, with the town proper accounting for about half of that and Sottomarina for most of the rest. The municipality, located in south of the province, close to the provinces of Padua and Rovigo, borders with Campagna Lupia, Cavarzere, Codevigo, Cona, Correzzola, Loreo, Rosolina and Venice. Chioggia is a miniature version of Venice, with a few canals, chief among them the Canale Vena, and the characteristic narrow streets known as calli. Chioggia has several medieval churches, much reworked in the period of its greatest prosperity in the 16th and 17th centuries. The church of S. Maria, founded in the eleventh century, became a cathedral in 1110, then was rebuilt as Chioggia Cathedral from 1623 by Baldassarre Longhena.

Recipes From Veneto

Recipes

Who knew giblets could make something this good? Though this sauce is made of oft-discarded poultry parts, it’s a refined delicacy with deep, rich flavor. 

Recipes

Wrap your hands around a bowl of pasta e fasoi, Venetian-style pasta, and bean soup, rich and nourishing and as murky as La Serenissima herself but much better-tasting.

Recipes

A beloved classic from Venice, this dish is perfect for spring when fresh peas abound and can easily be adapted for vegetarians.

Recipes

Bigoli (or bigoi in the Veneto dialect) are a thick, spaghetti-like pasta typical of the Veneto and eastern Lombardy.

What others are saying about Veneto

Buongiorno,

@jcondemi asks:

Anybody has experience trying to improve the energetic rating of a condo or house? Mine is rated G (lowest) and I wonder what renovations to do first, to achieve a better energetic rating. Somebody suggested adding a "wall" in front of the wall that faces the outside.

@jcondemi asks:

Does anybody have recommendations for general contractors in the Treviso area? I would like to renovate an apartment I bought (install new double-pane windows, redo kitchen, add air conditioning, etc)
