Rosa Salva: quality and tradition of the Venetian bakery
Is there a place like this in Venice? Of course: the lagoon has a lot of sublime bakeries but if you want to live an experience that's part of the Venetian culture, you have to visit the Rosa Salva Bakery.
Founded in 1879 and winner of many prizes and awards since then, it's a must for connoisseurs, but also for the ones who want to know the true Venetian bakery tradition.
