Overview

Make sure you only enjoy the best food Venice has to offer on this culinary walking tour, which provides a great cultural introduction for first-time visitors. Stray from the tourist trail, and visit five of Venice’s most popular cichetti bars, famed for Venetian-style tapas and wine. Receive personalized attention in a small group limited to 14, and finish the tour with enough restaurant recommendations to last your entire vacation. Plus, unlike some food tours, all drinks and dishes are included.

What to Expect

Greet your guide at a central Venice location, and receive a culinary overview of Venice’s world-famous food scene. Head straight to your first stop to sample traditional cicchetti, such as seafood-topped polenta and marinated olives.

Stroll through the streets of the Cannaregio neighborhood to an 18th-century watering hole famed for its polpette (spicy fried meatballs) before crossing the Grand Canal on a passenger ferry.

Pass the Rialto Bridge (Ponte Rialto) before browsing stalls at the Rialto Fish Market for fresh Venetian produce. Then, head to three more bars to enjoy wine and more samples with your small group of fellow food lovers.
