Stroll between vineyards
of Prosecco and Venice

La Vénétie ne se limite pas à Venise. Loin de là ! Les collines du Prosecco classées par l’UNESCO abritent petits villages, châteaux médiévaux, vignes en terrasses – les ciglioni. C’est là que sont produits les frizzante et spumante aux bulles délicates qui s’invitent sur de nombreuses tables étoilées.


Puis, en se rapprochant de la Sérénissime, les palais palladiens et Trévise prennent le relais. La découverte se fait culturelle et gastronomique pour le plus grand plaisir des épicuriens.

Enfin Venise et ses îles… l'univers de Chiara Pavan. Nous vous invitons à prendre les chemins de traverse de la Cheffe étoilée pour explorer la cité des Doges à travers ses petits artisans et des producteurs responsables.

Voyage gourmet dans le Prosecco avec Chiara Pavan & L’Hedonist

"Venice has always been considered the ideal city for a honeymoon, but this is a serious mistake.To live in Venice, or simply to visit it, is to fall in love with it and there is no room left in your heart for anything else" - Peggy Guggenheim


The Hedonist invites you to go further than Saint Mark's Square and reach Mazzorbo, Torcello, Burano… islands where the inhabitants are reviving ancient Venetian traditions. As in Venissa, the stronghold of Chiara Pavan where the owner of the premises revived the centuries-old Dorona di Venezia vineyard, which had almost disappeared. Or with the fishermen of Burano who want to get to know the lagoon other than on a gondola! And even the market gardeners of Sant'Erasmo who saved unique vegetables like the small purple artichoke from the disappearance.


A trip to Veneto concocted by a Chef aware of the fragility of the Serenissima and who fights for its preservation through her inventive and responsible cuisine.

by Chiara Pavan

La Cheffe étoilée vous convie à un voyage dans " sa " Venise. Dans son engagement pour sauver la lagune et ses îles et parce qu’elle en connaît tous ses artisans et producteurs, elle partage en exclusivité ses bonnes adresses, ses lieux secrets qui sont une source d’inspiration inépuisable pour sa cuisine responsable. L’Hedonist vous propose une flânerie gourmande dans les collines du Prosecco classées par l’Unesco et Trévise, "la petite Venise".

Italian bubbles

Not far from Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, cradle and beating heart of Prosecco, we invite you to visit two cellars to testfrizzantiAndspumantiincluding the legendary Cartizze vintage. Tastings to convince you that the fruity but slightly acidic notes of prosecco cannot be reduced to an Aperol spritz!

Cooking lessons
at the farm

When a London fashionista and an Italian Chef meet...the result is a charming farmhouse and cooking school, nestled in the forest. The couple shares their communicative passion for Venetian cuisine with ingredients that come from their vegetable garden. A moment out of time.

The Canova gypsotheque

The Hedonist has an amazing discovery in store for you in the village of Possagno:  the gypsotheque (plaster collection) of Antonio Canova, considered the last great Italian sculptor. The modern wing of the museum, designed by the genius architect Carlo Scarpa, brings together terracotta sketches and plaster casts of rare beauty.

United Colors of Trevisa

Opposite Treviso Cathedral stands the former city prison converted into an exhibition space for Luciano Benetton's collection of modern art (Treviso is the headquarters of the Benetton Group). The heavy doors and gates of origin give a special atmosphere to the visit.

In the footsteps
by Carlos Scarpa

The brilliant Venetian architect and designer of the 1960s left his mark on Venice with his works which combine old and new, smooth and rough, stone and metal. The Ca' Foscari University, the  Fondazione Querini Stampalia or the Negozio Olivetti allow you to discover another little-known facet of the Serenissima.

The last

In the 16th century, more than 10,000 gondolas sailed on the lagoon. Today there are barely 500 … which are made by squerarioli. There are only four left in Venice who, in the secrecy of their workshop, create gondolas designed to measure for each gondolier. Roberto will tell you all the steps and the 400 hours of work necessary for the boat to be launched.

Bacari, cicchetti and spritz

The tour of the bacari - traditional bars - is a ritual for Venetians. A glass of spritz in one hand, a small plate in the other, you will sit on a bridge or under a porch to enjoycicchettilike tuna crostini, marinated artichokes, beef meatballs, grilled calamari. The congratulations!

Of course there is La Fenice. But L'Hedonist has chosen to give opera lovers a different experience where the spectator finds himself at the heart of the most beautiful works of the Italian repertoire, in a magnificent 17th century palace.

Art at Giudecca

A former industrial district, the Giudecca was discreet away from the crowds. With the launch ofGiudecca Art District, the seventh sestiere of Venice has been propelled into another dimension. Art galleries, artists' studios but also magnificent Palladian churches and the famous Casa dei Tre Oci. La Giudecca is definitely "the place to be"!

The new wave
from Murano

Roberto Beltrami is Murano's youngest master glassmaker - yet he was not born in Venice and does not come from a long line of glassmakers. In his studioWave Murano Glass, he revolutionizes immutable techniques such as "battuto" or cold engraving to create pieces adored by Chiara Pavan.

All the gold in the world

In an artisanal workshop, 24-carat gold is at the center of the game. For a hundred years the tradition has persisted of working and transforming gold into sheets thinner than a hair, to adorn works of art but also the bottles of Venissa! The cozy atmosphere contributes to the charm of the visit.

The library 

Exclusive appointment with the last master glassmaker in Venice, manufacturer of smalts and gold leaf mosaic for more than 130 years. Here everything is still done by hand… with the oldest artisanal mosaic kiln in the world. The color library has more than 3500 shades, including about 40 for skin colors!

another Venice

Staying in Venissa means experiencing the lagoon in a wilder, more natural way. Far from the tumult of the Serenissima. This haven of peace, located 30 minutes from Saint Mark's Square, was born from the crazy bet of the Bisol family. After reviving the Dorona vineyard, they respectfully built a "Venissa way of life" made of sharing with small producers, eco-responsible experiences and gastronomy.  Mazzorbo est become the refuge of Chiara Pavan who interprets in her dishes all the love she has for the environment.
