Did you know that almost half of Venice consists of gardens? In the 15th century, Venice had more than 400 botanical gardens, more than any other city in the world!

Since 2012, we have taken readers into the private city, exploring green oases and their recipes. Discover our green city guides, retreats, and a very special garden!
