Description

Embark on a delicious adventure with this three-hour Venice tour that takes in its most famous Bacari wine bars and their famous cicchetti dishes!

Start off from Campo de la Madalena, a small raised square that is unchanged since medieval times, and is famous for its modest houses topped with interesting chimneys. Call into the old historical bar, a much loved bar that specialises in cicchetti, for your first taste of these Venetian-style tapas.

The best things to do in Venice often revolve around food. On this tour, you will try some of the city's famous specialties, from plates of olives to marinated seafood served on wedges of soft polenta. This atmospheric bar has a long history, and used to be an old charcoal store, so learn about the city as you feast on some of its specialties.

With your local Venice guide, continue on walking into Strada Nuova, and calling into another old historical bar, locally known as the Widow's Place, which has been open since the 18th century and is famous for its polpette (spicy fried meatballs). Head to Campo de Santa Sofia and jump on an iconic Traghetto to cross Canal Grande into the Rialto area.

Then pay a visit to a true local Venice attraction - the local market, before heading to the Bar in the center of Venice, a hole-in-the-wall place that serves a simple but delicious selection of cicchetti and great regional Italian wines and proseccos.

Stop by a couple of other nearby bars to try a few more specialties before finishing up this Venice food tour. The tour ends on the steps of the Rialto Bridge, where you can head back to one of your new favorite bars, or easily make your way to any other part of the city!
