Join the Venetian version of happy hour on this personalized wine and food tour that showcases the cherished Italian tradition of the “aperitivo.” With a private guided leading the way, visit hand-picked bars away from the tourist throngs to sample drinks like a fizzing cocktail and ancient Roman wine. Drinks are paired with the Venetian appetizers known as “cicchetti” and a casual lesson in local history.

Giulia was an excellent host, who guided us around areas of Venice we had not previously visited. She took us to several small restaurants and introduced us to Venician, eating and drinking. Also she was a great source of information and full of tips for our continued vacation.

Enjoyed the experience with Loris. Here gave us a nice history of Venice as we walked the streets. The aperitivo experience and selection was nice along with his knowledge of wine and culinary expertise. Visited some places we'd probably would have passed as a typical tourist.
