You'll meet your local, foodie guide, and small group of no more than 12 people in the authentic Venetian neighborhood of San Polo. Here, you will get an introduction to the flavors of these unique islands before heading off in search of authentic local specialties.

Your guide will take you to three of their favorite local osteries where you'll sample cicchetti (Venetian ‘tapas’ including calamari, salami, grilled polenta and more), baskets of fried seafood, and plates of piping hot risotto. At each stop, you'll learn about the dishes you're eating and also enjoy complimentary drinks, like locally-made prosecco from the tap, wine, and Venice's favorite aperitif: the Spritz.

My daughter, niece and I took the Authentic Food Experience & Moonlight Gondola Ride with Ketty in early July 2019 and couldn't have been happier. Ketty was wonderful guide and shared lots of authentic stories about Venice. The cicchetti and local wines were incredible. This was an experience we couldn't and wouldn't have done on our own so THANK YOU, Ketty and Walks of Italy.
