Picnic lunch?

Is it legal to pack a basket and have lunch in a public park? I hear different things. If so, anybody know a good spot?

I think it is actually against the Law to Picnic in Venice, and there are only a couple of Parks I know of, there are seats in some of the Campo's but really would not go down well to lay out a picnic,

If you grab a panino and a bottle of water from a bakery or something and sit on a bench to eat quickly, you will likely not be bothered. but a full-fledged picnic is generally not allowed except at the park mentioned above. I'm not aware of any other locations but there may be some - I just never found them.

Whatever the case, just be sure not to litter! ;-) LL
