Description

Embark on a delicious adventure, enjoy Bacari wine bars and sample the famous cicchetti dishes with this Venice food and wine tour.
The tour starts in Campo de la Maddalena, a small square that has remained the same since medieval times, famous for its modest houses topped with interesting chimneys. Call into the old historical inn, a much loved bar that specialises in cicchetti, for your first taste of Venice's tapas.
The best things to do in Venice often revolve around food. Try some of the city’s famous specialties, from plates of olives to marinated seafood served on wedges of soft polenta.
Learn all about the long history of this atmospheric bar from your local guide.
Walk down Strada Nuova and stop at another old historical bar which has been open since the 18th century and is famous for its "polpette", or spicy fried meatballs.
Next, head to Campo de Santa Sofia and jump on a traghetto to cross Canal Grande into the Rialto area. Traghetti are like gondolas, but they're used as passenger ferries instead - no sitting or singing here - this is how locals get across the canals!

Pay a visit to a true local Venice attraction, the local market, before heading to yet another bar in the centre of Venice, a place that serves a simple but delicious selection of cicchetti and great regional Italian wines and proseccos.
You’d be mistaken if you thought there weren’t any bars left in Venice to visit, as your local guide will lead you to a couple more stops.
The tour then comes to an end on the steps of the Rialto Bridge, where you can head back to one of your new favourite bars, or your local guide will be happy to point you in the direction of your accommodation.
