Food- VeniceVenice eats traditional Italian food.Common foods they eat on a daily basis include pasta, pizza, wine, antipasto, and for dessert gelato. A lot of the food we eat comes from Italy like pizza and pasta.

They always sit down and drink their coffee and eat their meals.

Food- RomeRome and Venice eat a lot of the same things since they are both in the same country. They also enjoy eating bread. A typical meal for them is fresh vegetables, cheap meat, and maybe some pasta.Their main dessert is cannoli which is a pastry wrap filled with ricotta cheese and usually pistachios. (But cannoli originated in Sicily an island of Italy.)Food- ParisFrench food is very different then Italian food.For breakfast the French usually have fresh baguette and usually yogurt on the side.
