Discover culture, the open-air market and fascinating shops as we eat and drink our way through the historic Jewish Quarter of Venice in the Cannaregio district. Savor several of Venice's bite-size versions of local delicacies called cicchetti.

This is truly the ultimate insider's wine and food experience in Venice!

Description

Do as the locals do in the evening, and join us for this Venetian tradition as we eat and drink our way through the historic Jewish quarter, discovering new wines and cicchetti appetizers. As the light wanes and the locals seek out their favorite bars for friends, food, and fun, this will be the best time to experience true Venetian culture! At this hour, the hectic pace of day turns into a relaxed stroll and the canals are at their most picturesque. This is your chance to experience the local version of "happy hour!"

We begin our wine and food tour by exploring the Jewish Quarter in the Cannaregio district. The Jewish Quarter was the first of its kind in the world and served as inspiration for Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice. It is still an active center for the Jewish community, and the surrounding alleyways, bridges and canals have maintained their unique identity throughout the ages.

As we amble along the tour, and you won't be rushed from bar to bar. You'll see a traditional open air market, fascinating shops, and other unique characteristics of the area. Still, food and wine are the stars of the evening, and you'll experience the best of both in three celebrated and hidden bacari (wine bars).

The bacari themselves seem like something out of an Italian film: wine glasses and bottles line brick and stone walls, and a friendly face greets you from behind the bar while others scurry to prepare and display a wide variety of their best finger foods - cicchetti of various shapes, sizes, and flavors. Lively conversations can be heard among wood-beamed ceilings and chandeliers, giving you the impression that the locals have been coming here every week for a lifetime. You'd be correct.

Here you'll sample some of the city's most extraordinary offerings. Whether it's expertly seasoned and fried meatballs, creamy codfish mousse or a creative bruschetta, you'll always find the best of the day's market in these one-of-a-kind creations.

As no Italian edible should be without an excellent glass of wine, each sampling will be paired with an ombra, a small glass of one of the regions many renowned varieties (and included together with the food in the tour price). Learn fascinating insights such as how the word ombra, which means "shadow," comes from a centuries-old tradition when merchants would sell their wine in the shadow of St. Mark's bell tower in order to keep themselves, and the wine, cool.

Before the night is over, you'll have seen the breathtaking views, hidden treasures, and local favorites of the area. After delighting in the food and wine adventure itself, you'll leave with the courage and insight necessary to continue the adventure on your own!
