EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

LEARN ABOUT THE FOOD AND CULTURE OF VENICE

Venice has a food culture quite unlike anywhere else in Italy – or the world, for that matter. There is no farmable land here; so no meat, dairy or grains. Originally constructed of wood, the whole city was a fire hazard; so no wood-burning ovens for pizza. As a trading city though, Venice did have access to spices from around the world, not to mention endless access to fish.

On this small group Venice Food Tour, you’ll get to the heart of the city through its stomach, dispelling those vicious rumors that there’s no good food in Venice. Of course there is, you just need to know where to look!

VISIT THE RIALTO FISH MARKET & BEST CICCHETTI BARS

Who better to lead your Venice food tour than a local Venetian foodie? You’ll meet near the Rialto Bridge and start your culinary adventure as Venetians have for centuries – at the Rialto Fish Market. This is where the seafood restaurants in Venice buy their fish daily, deciding their menus based on the day’s catch. It’s also where you’ll first come to grips with the strange quirks of island living.

Your first food stop is one of our favorites. This bacaro is a popular gathering spot for locals thanks to its unbeatable cicchetti and a mean spritz. You’ll try two items of your choice here along with a glass of wine, prosecco or spritz. We would highly recommend the baccalà, a salted cod dish served here whipped, slathered on bread and so fresh it will knock your socks off.

Next up is another great cicchetti bar. Like the Spanish tapas, cicchetti is a food form synonymous with Venice. Although menus change daily, they are usually dominated by crostini; slices of bread with various creative toppings; panini, which we know as sandwiches; and fritti, or fried food – mostly fish and vegetables. Cicchetti are a big part of Venetian food culture, as the perfect snack for fisherman, who arrive home from sea around 9am and settle down in their favorite dark bars for a bite to eat and a glass of wine.

CROSS THE GRAND CANAL TO EXPLORE DELICIOUS, HISTORIC CANNAREGIO

You won’t just eat as the locals do, you’ll travel like them too! Hop aboard a gondola to cross the Grand Canal with your guide, disembarking by Ca d’Oro (or the ‘Gold Palace’) in the historic neighborhood of Cannaregio. While tourists clog the streets between Rialto & St. Mark’s Basilica, Cannaregio is where locals congregate. Historically the Jewish Ghetto, it’s the most historic and storied part of the city, as you’ll learn from your guide.

Settle down in this lovely neighborhood for yet another glass of wine and a plate of the city’s best fresh fish pasta.

GREAT FOOD DOESN’T END WITH YOUR VENICE FOOD TOUR

Before you part ways with your local expert, they’ll give you recommendations for restaurants and bars to suit your palate, so that you can continue eating and enjoying Venice like a local. They’ll give you tips on how to avoid the more touristy restaurants and where to seek out the best food at the best prices – and what to try when you get there.

Traveling in small groups of only 12 people throughout your tour, you’ll find it easy to engage with your local guide, and to ask all the questions you can think of. With their help you’ll learn about Venice through its incredible food, and manage to avoid those pricey, mediocre meals your friends warned you about.

Excellent tour with just the right mixture of history and food. Was pleasantly surprised with the amount of actual food tastings and wine tastings compared to other food tours we have been on. Kristina was a fab guide.
A very good tour with a very pleasant tour leader. A little expensive - it would have been good if the tour could have included one more, non-bacaro stop, say at the the Del Doge coffee place?
Great tour

Loved the 'local' focus of the tour. Lots to eat. Mose was engaging and knowledgeable. He had an obvious passion for Venice and that made the tour even more fun.
Mose was precise highly intelligent and eager to fascinate us. He seemed to taylor the tour to our questions Very enjoyable We are still talking about him.
Fabulous. As a non drinker it would have been nice to have a juice maybe. Also as a vegetarian/fish eater to have had a couple more substitute nibbles.
A very enjoyable and interesting tour with an engaging guide, Mose.
Excellent service during the 2 tours with Francesca.
The tour was excellent and very informative. Mose was an outstanding tour guide and I would highly recommend him and the tour!! Thank you for making our Venice experience so memorable.
Mos? was a REALLY ENTERTAINING and knowledgeable guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with him. His English was perfect. We would book him again for another tour in the region.
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour, thank you Francesca. Great food, excellent tour commentary and a nice small group of people.
I loved the Venice food tour. Francesca, our guide, was very helpful and informative and the variety of foods we tasted was just perfect. I'd recommend this to any visitor to Venice.
I was pleased with both tours, The guides are informed and passionate, and fun!
Absolutely loved the tour. Learned so much about the local food and wine. The tour is very generous - don't have breakfast before you go ! Mose was a great guide and very informative. Next time in Venice will definitely do it again.
The tour was excellent, Mose was fantastic, he was informative, interesting & fun. We learned a lot about Venetian cicchetti and really enjoyed all that we ate and drank. We would highly recommend this tour.

We loved our walk through the market and our meals! Francesca was more than helpful in explaining Venice history as well as the history of the food. Clearly, her passion for her city shone through, and we were so happy to have her as our guide. She was able to adjust on-the-fly when restaurants were closed, and probably made the tour even more enjoyable because of it.

Our tour guide was amazing!!!! She is very knowledgeable and passionate in what she does. We loved her!!!
Our guide was extremely smart and very pleasant! Good food
I took the Venice Food Tour with a friend while visiting Venice, and it was the highlight of our three-day stay in the city. Our guide, Christina, was lovely and extremely knowledgeable about Venice's history and its food. The food and drinks that we enjoyed at each stop were delicious and authentic. The walk around the city helped us understand more about the different neighborhoods in Venice and led us to places we may not have discovered on our own. We highly recommend taking this tour during a stay in Venice. If you can, take the tour on your first day so you have time after to stop at some of the places Christina recommends which are not part of the tour.
Francesca was outstanding!!! By far the best introduction to Venice we could have had ... and a true Venetian 👍 Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Venice and even go as far to say request Francesca because she was so delightful and knowledgeable..... thank you !!!
Great tour which we enjoyed very much. Cristina is fabulous and friendly and her enthusiasm and knowledge made the tour a delight for us. Lovely to see parts of Venice we would have missed and to learn more about its rich history. Would really recommend.
Excellent tour. Francesca was great
Our guide has personality-plus and made the walk a lot of fun. We enjoyed seeing an insider's view of the food markets and local stopping places.
Barbara was delightful fun funny and perfect for our group! Loved every minute of it!!!
Barbara was fantastic!!! She was informative, enthusiastic and you could tell she really loved Venice. She started with a brief history of the city which helped us understand the layout of Venice. She showed us great food treats- nerves and horse meat! She made each group member fell special. We loved the wine, the cichetti and lunch. Most of all, we loved Barbara. She had great recommendations about visit get the lagoon island and approved of our plans for lunch the next day. Later in the week, we saw her with another group. She stopped to say hello a gave us ea h a big hug. On Sunday we returned to El Remer where we had lunch with the group. 5 stars for Barbara.
Fantastic tour guide very friendly and passionate thankyou
Barbara was delightful. She was a pleasure to tour with and full of very interesting facts. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour!
This was an excellent tour very well led by the guide. It was helped by the reasonable weather and the composition of the group who got on very well together. The guide gave details in short sections, checked where every one was on an on-going basis and adapted what she was saying to the group, responding with interesting details to the questions she was asked.. Whilst the squid did not meet with an overly positive response, it was an experience to try it. The drinks were excellent, with my wife and I enjoying all three.
Very good, informative and friendly

We really enjoyed our tour! The small group was a great size, especially for the crowded areas. The food was delicious and interesting. Our guide had lots of interesting info to share about Venice.
Fantastic tour, Jennifer was brilliant, so knowledgable and. Despite cloudy skies snd rain it was memorable.
This was fun. I learned a few new things about Venice and food, and that was good.
Awesome tour, guide was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Lots of good tips for things to do/see after the tour as well as explaining the history of Venice and the areas we toured. Highly recommended.
Our guide was phenomenal! She shared lots of history along our tour even pointing out the church her parents married in. I will use your services in the future.
Christine was really excellent. Bubbly, well informed and entertaining. A lovely few hours and a great way to learn about the city.
Everythink was fine, thank you

Christina's English was impeccable, her love of Venice was contagious and her energy was so fun. She gave a wonderful explanation of Venice's history of commerce and explained their fish and vegetable market, and walked us through the meat sections. We ate at 2 off the beaten path pub style eateries with a large selection of choices to try. Then we ate a delicious meal to end our tour. It was fantastic and I highly recommend this tour. I felt that we got our money's worth for sure!
Overall I think this was a fun and informative tour! We enjoyed the cichettis portion of our tour very much but were somewhat disappointed with the restaurant where we ended the tour. It was good but we were all packed in so tightly and it was quite hot inside.
Interesting but not enough tastes and lunch was poor. I've done a tour in Rome and we went to a cheese and Prochutto place. A dessert place and had a fabulous family style pasta (variety ) and lots of wine! Same price as yours but WAY better!
Excellent! Barbara was fantastic! We will recommend walks in Italy to everyone. Thank you!
Absolutely loved this tour. So much fun and very informative. Cristina was a delight, very knowledgeable and a great sense of humour. Thank you. Your company does great tours and we will definitely recommend you.
Loved Francesca. Great tour with a fun group. Delicious food. Do it early in trip. You will get great ideas of places to revisit and recommendations. Worth every penny.
I would have enjoyed learning how some of the food was actually made rather than just tasting it. Our guide was very pleasant and informative. She did a good job juggling our diverse group. Since the tour started at 10:30, it might have been a welcome addition to have the first tasting be of coffee rather than wine.
The guide was enthusiastic and delightful. She made the your tour very special.

We had a great time , please can you provide address detail for the restaurant where the tour finished , we stayed on talking with our fellow group members who were from USA and Australia , but didn't note where we were . The tour was so good that we stopped by All ' Arco again when we were in Rialto later in the week.

It was a pretty hot day and lunch was a plate of spaghetti (cooked in squid ink) which was delicious but far too heavy - no one finished their serving, which should be telling you something! It would have been much nicer to have had a platter of local cured meat/hams and a local salad. Or something else much lighter.
Jennifer was very personable, knowledgeable and able to answer any question that was put to her. She treated us like family, made sure everyone was taken care of, made the tour feel like a family outing. Would highly recommend this tour, especially if conducted by Jennifer.
Our guide Francesca was excellent really providing insight into Venice and its history, made the tour all the more interesting.

christina was the best tour guide we could have. we really enjoyed it also the tipps about venice, the bars and restaurants we visited.
Barbara was an amazing guide. I was expecting to find Venice too touristy and not really my thing. But after learning a bit about the history, the food and drink cukture, and where to go to avoid tourists, I completely fell in love with the city. I spent the rest of the day enjoying delicious food and drinks in very quiet spots of Venice. Thanks to her Venice was a real highlight of my trip and I would love to come back.
Our tour was very informative because our guide was so em

I forget the name of the woman I had on Friday, but I had Francesca on Saturday and she was incredible. Very informative and interesting, and at the end of the tour, she asked us individually what our plans were and gave us suggestions for where to go and what to do. It was very helpful! I wish my other guide had done that the day before, because I would've had more time to do the things Francesca had suggested the next day. I didn't know where to begin to ask for help, so Francesca's advice was great.
