Full description
Take part in a typical happy hour in Venice and enjoy a real 'bacari tour', one of the most entertaining traditions of Venetian culture! The aperitif is a ritual all over Italy with different traditions from region to region. The traditional Venetian aperitif is a time for socializing: the inhabitants of Venice meet before dinner to enjoy an aperitif with local wine and taste typical snacks. The Venetian happy hour takes place in the 'bacari', which are small bars offering an intimate atmosphere and a large variety of delicious 'cicchetti' made of fish, meat and vegetables. The tour will begin near the Rialto Bridge, where you will meet the local guide: after a short stroll to see the famous Rialto market place, the itinerary will continue with the visit of 3 typical Venetian bars, called 'bacari'. Immerse yourself in this amazing Venetian after-work tradition and enjoy the original experience of an aperitif in Venice!
