Wine + food + traghetti = Venice personified. Join this best selling Venice tour to dose yourself up on Venetian culture in the form of local food specialties and regional wines. It’s the Italian way!

Join us for the perfect Venice evening. Embark on a delicious adventure with this three-hour Venice tour that stops off at Bacari wine bars and samples their famous cicchetti dishes. Time to get your foodie game face on with some Venice cicchetti!

You’ll start this Venice food tour from Campo de la Maddalena, a small raised square that has remained the same since medieval times, and is famous for its modest houses topped with interesting chimneys. Call into the old historical inn, a much loved bar that specialises in cicchetti, for your first taste of this Venice 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. Here, you’ll learn all about the long history of this atmospheric bar from your local guide as you feast on some of its specialties.

You’ll continue on this Venice city tour by walking into Strada Nuova and calling in to another old historical bar which has been open since the 18th century and is famous for its ‘polpette’, or spicy fried meatballs. From there, you’ll head to Campo de Santa Sofia and jump on a traghetto to cross Canal Grande into the Rialto area. Traghetti are like gondolas, but they're used as passenger ferries instead — no sitting or singing here — this is how locals get across the canals!

Pay a visit to a true local Venice attraction — the local market, before heading to yet another 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. You’d be mistaken if you thought here weren’t any bars left in Venice to visit, as your local guide will lead you to a couple more stops, just to finish this cicchetti tour with a bang!

The 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 your local guide will be happy to point you in the direction of your accommodation.

“This was the perfect way to explore life as a local Venetian. The subtle insights into the day to day life combined with the quality of the food and wine was exceptional. The tour is the perfect amount of time and a very reasonable price considering the amount of food, wine and labor provided by the guide. Will recommend to anyone I know visiting Venice and will look to explore other Urban Adventure tours in the future!”
