Full description
Art and wine is the perfect combination throughout a walking tour discovering the history and the food traditions of Venice. Your local guide will introduce you to some of Venice’s best kept secrets, as you also enjoy a stop at a traditional Venetian wine bar “Bacaro”, popular with thirsty locals.

Your experience will begin with a visit to the Scala Contarini Del Bovolo, a breathtaking Follie. You will make your way up the staircase to enjoy its spectacular views over the roof tops of Venice, great for taking photos or selfies. You will then make your way through Venice’s maze of narrow alleyways towards the Ospedaletto complex, which is in the residential area of San Giovanni and Paolo. Here, you will have a very special visit to the Church of Santa Maria dei Derelitti, the Four Seasons’ courtyard, and the Sala della Musica.

Just a short stroll away, your food and wine tasting experience will begin. Here you will enjoy a couple of glasses of wine accompanied by tasty Venetian Cicchetti, which will help you understand the culture of the Bacaro and its food. Your tour will then end at a great local Bacaro, where your guide will be very happy to help you with recommendations of how to continue your fun day, or provide you with directions back to your hotel.
