Enjoy a gastronomical experience of Venetian cicheterie on this foodie tour!

Venetian food is unlike food anywhere else in Italy – with its long history of trading, the food here makes extensive use of exotic spices, while its watery location means fish is on the menu more often than not. Venice can make a fantastic break from the usual pizza-and-pasta gastronomy of Italy, but with so many touristy restaurants on the island, it can be hard to make the most of Venetian cuisine and wine on your own. 

On this private-guide led exploration of Venice’s most bustling markets, cafés, and its famous cicheti bars, you will delve into an authentic side of Venetian culture, learning what to order, how to find great places and enjoying lots of tastings along the way – so make sure you have a hearty appetite before you join us! 

By the way: be sure to go on this tour on an empty stomach!
