5 Rounds w/a Local: Rebecca Hughes. Our local Venice, Italy curator.

🖋 Tell us about yourself.

My name is Rebecca, I'm from Edinburgh, Scotland, and I live in Venice.

☕️ What is your favorite coffee shop where you live? 

My favorite coffee shop in Venice is Torrefazione Cannaregio, where they roast their own coffee and you can ask for your cappuccino made from your favorite beans.

🥃 What is your favorite bar where you live? 

It's pretty hard for me to choose a favorite bar, but Cantina Do Spade has excellent seafood snacks to accompany your pre-dinner drink, and it's hidden away down a narrow alley that gets packed with people in the evenings.

🍽 What is your favorite restaurant where you live?

My current favorite restaurant is Osteria Mocenigo, which always has lots of Venetian local customers and does a superb dish of mixed fried seafood.

🚗 If you could travel to any US city right now where would it be? 

I'm ashamed to say that I've never been to the US, but I have a lot of places I want to visit! Although I don't really like big cities, I can't wait to visit New York because I love modern art.

✈️ If you could travel to any country right now where would it be? 

Russia is my new travel obsession. As well as St Petersburg and Moscow, I want to visit some isolated monasteries surrounded by snow and filled with mysterious Orthodox icons.
