Gelateria Nico, Venice
I just came back from teaching a week-long illustration workshop in Venice, Italy. After finish up the class each evening, the students and I often ran to our favourite gelateria in town, Nico. If they pretend they don’t understand your English, be nice and try to speak a little Italian. Just read the names of the tastes you want, followed by ‘Per Favore!’ You can sit by the large seating area at the dock, but the local way of enjoying their superb gelato is to hold the cone in your hand and take a walk along the promenade overlooking the canal and Giudecca Island across the water. Ah, so Venice.
