Food and wine experience with walking tour around Venice

The only way to get a taste of the authentic Venetian gastronomic delights without being over-charged is to follow our local guide, who knows the ins and outs of Venice's hot spot for local fresh Venetian homemade culinarians. Complete the experience with a gondola ride and a traditional lunch!

Venice Food Experience in semi private Group with Gondola Ride highlights: 

  • Take in the sights, smells and tastes of the historic Rialto Fruit and Vegetable Market and the Rialto Fish Market, where you’ll learn the Venetian secrets.
  • Take a gastronomic walking tour of Venice, learning all the secrets of Venice tradition
  • Taste local wines and cicchetti, Venice’s answer to the Spanish tapas at the best bars in the city, together with some traditional fried delicacies
  • Ride a traditional Gondola in the Grand Canal to reach Cannareggio, the old Jewish Ghetto of Venice
  • Have lunch in a traditional Venetian restaurant, tasting its pasta specialties

With us, you will have the best of the Venetian specialities by venturing into the heart of Venice's food scene, the Rialto Fish, Fruit and Vegetable Markets, crossing from the ornate footbridge Rialto Bridge (Ponte Rialto) over the Grand Canal reaching Cannareggio by gondola.

Venetian Fresh Market

Join a small culinary tour with no more than 12 participants, to the heart of Venice's food scene at Rialto Fruit and Vegetable Market and the Rialto Fish Market. As you peruse the overflowing aisles, your expert Venetian guide will explain how the ancient trade routes and a strong maritime history have shaped the diets of Venetians; and how they still get the freshest fish from the Mediterranean. Along the way, we will stop at some of the most famous bars in Venice to have a glass of local wine and a traditional cicchetto. Cicchetti are Venice's answer to the Spanish tapas, and are  composed by bread with delicious toppings, as well as by Venetian Panini (sandwiches).

Venice Gondola Ride

After talking food for so much time, we will embark for a traditional gondola ride in the Grand Canal, taking us from Rialto to Cannareggio, the old Jewish Getto of Venice. Venetian ships used to be the main source in exporting Eastern spices to Europe so it's of no surprise that they have made a rich contribution to the city's cuisine. We will definitely sample some sumptuous local wine, prosecco or traditional spritz (an Italian drink perfect for the happy hour), together with some fritti (fried vegetables and fish, often battered), that we will eat on the go, heading to our next stop.

A traditional Italian Lunch

At this point, we will stop in a traditional Venetian neighborhood trattoria, where you will taste their pasta specialty of the day. Together with the pasta, you will have a glass of local wine.
With an intimate group of no larger than 12 people, we don't just want you to eat well for a day; we want to show you how to eat like a Venetian for your entire stay. Your expert local guide will give you the best recommendations for when, where and how to eat so you'll never again endure another over-priced touristy meal in Venice.
