This was a great lunchtime experience a must for your first day in Venice - useful insights and fascinating facts along with delicious Venetian tapas! We revisited a number of the places on our second day

We had 3 stops on our tour and got to see new parts or Venice while also tasting some delicious new dishes. Not too much walking or talking, it was the perfect balance for something like this.
