Full description
Meet your guide and embark on a food-hopping adventure through the maze of alleyways and canals, away from beaten tourist tracks. After a sparkling drink in a romantic courtyard, visit hand-picked bàcari - typical local bars, where neighbors meet up for a chat. At his quaint bar, padrone Andrea proudly presents his very own cicchetti specialty. On the way to Aldo and Piero’s deli, cross the Canale Grande on a gondola - just like a real Venetian. Winding paths, where you usually only encounter locals, lead to their family-run, very traditional salumeria - one of the last of its kind in all of Venice. Watch how from deep inside its massive counter, the father and son retrieve delicious Veneto formaggi for a cheese tasting.

At the next stop, find yourself right in the heart of local life: take a hearty bite into a multi-layered tramezzino, the Italian take on the sandwich. Then sample a traditional dish in a location full of history. Dating back to 1890, this restaurant is the oldest of its kind and the very place where the Venezia Football Club was founded in 1907. Here you get to enjoy a special meal that has been served to the Doge of Venice for centuries - on the same day each year in accordance with old customs.

At other stops, sample a shadow, served with Venice’s cicchetti. Stimulate your senses with local Venetian wines, dunk biscuits in ‘not-so-holy’ wine, indulge in a dessert called ‘pick me up’, drink espresso at the same place as Richard Wagner and Franz Liszt once did, and much, much more. The tour is a round trip and conveniently ends back at the meeting point.
