Full description
This experience starts at the historical fish market of Rialto, in the heart of Venice. Ferdinando will escort you along the fish stores teaching you the secrets needed to recognize the most fresh fish. Here, you will buy the ingredients to prepare delicious dishes.

You will move through the city like a true Venetian, using the public gondola boat across the Grand Canal and then, passing through the labyrinth of “calli” (Venetian narrow streets) away from the overcrowded-tourist places.
