Embark on a delicious adventure with this three-hour Venice tour that takes in its most famous Bacari wine bars and their famous cicchetti dishes.

Call into the old historical bar, a much loved bar that specialises in cicchetti, for your first taste of these Venetian-style tapas.
The best things to do in Venice often revolve around food. On this Venice tour, you will try some of the city’s famous specialties, from plates of olives to marinated seafood served on wedges of soft polenta. This atmospheric bar has a long history, and used to be an old charcoal store, so learn about the city as you feast on some of its specialties.
With your local Venice guide, we continue on, walking into Strada Nuova, and calling into another old historical bar, or the widow’s place, which has been open since the 18th century and is famous for its polpette, spicy fried meatballs. Head to Campo de Santa Sofia and jump on an iconic Venice gondola to cross Canal Grande into the Rialto area.
Pay a visit to a true local Venice attraction – the local market, before heading to the Bar in the centre of Venice, a hole-in-the-wall place that serves a simple but delicious selection of cicchetti and great regional Italian wines and proseccos. Stop by a couple of other nearby bars to try a few more specialties and to finish up this Venice food tour through the city.
This Venice tour then comes to an end on the steps of the Rialto Bridge, where you can head back to one of your new favourite bars, or easily make your way to any other part of the city.
