The enchanting city of Venice is famous for its charming squares and historical monuments, however it also boasts incredible food and wine. Let your tastebuds tingle on this small group walking tour of Venice, accompanied by a local foodie guide.
Just like a real local, start your day drinking an authentic Italian espresso. After this Italian ritual you’ll be ready to visit the most traditional market of Venice: the fish and vegetable market near Rialto. Here you will find locally-sourced fish and Sant’Erasmo vegetables that grow in the homonym island of the Venetian lagoon.
After a very Italian beginning, a Venetian “ombra” aperitif is waiting for you. You'll stop in one of the most traditional "Bacaro" of the city, where you will savour a traditional “ombra de vin” (a typical glass of wine) while tasting some local products.
The next step will make your mouth water: try the original Venetian “cicchetti”. Whether with fish, ham, cheese, sauces, or meat, eating “cicchetti” is an essential part of Venetian life! While eating and drinking, your local foodie will tell you the ancient history of Venice, the commerce of spices and exotic food and the centenary story of fish cuisine.
Finally, stop in an historical Gelateria to taste an artisanal gelato to refresh your mouth.
On this tour you will discover the authentic traditions of Venetian life, taste local products and experience Venice like a local
