Venezia Autentica's Quality Label, a guide for the smart traveler, a sign of trust in local businesses
Venezia Autentica’s Quality Label attests that the local business to which it has been attributed shares our values and is therefore committed to high standards of quality, sustainability, and social responsibility. It is attributed only to genuine local activities providing the best of quality products and services. When you spend money in the shop, bar, restaurant, etc. of one of the labels’ recipient, you can discover and enjoy the real Venice while supporting authentic Venetian businesses and therefore the future of the city. The local businesses which display our logo, on top of sharing our values, are committed to rewarding the holders of the “Venezia Autentica Friends’ Pass” with exclusive discounts on all of their products sold at full price.
