Full description

Enjoy a variety of local Venetian cichetti and 3 wines on this walking tour.

Meet your local guide at the first traditional bacaro (bar). Learn a bit about the city of Venice and sample some traditional cichetti (Italian-style tapas) along with 1 wine of your choice. Your guide will explain the unique combination of ingredients as well as the wine you're tasting.

Then make your way through hidden alleyways, over bridges, and alongside beautiful canals to discover the real Venice off the tourist track as you make your way to the second bacaro. Along the way, your guide will tell you some interesting and fun stories about Venice that only locals know.

Enjoy more cichetti and wine at 2 hotspots. Your knowledgeable local guide will reveal more secrets about this amazing floating city.

The tour vibe will be very friendly and enthusiastic, but most importantly your guide will ensure you get the most out of the history of the city and, of course, of the food and wine culture.

    This was a great way to start our stay in Venice, learning about the city while trying three different local wines and very delicious tapas, though the locals call them something different. The best was the “spritz” which you will notice nearly everyone in Venice is always drinking the “orange colored” drink which is the spritz. Our guide was simply lovely, I cannot recall her name right now, but she had short curly dark hair and was very knowledgeable and friendly, told us many interesting facts and stories, and I do love the Italian accent, so beautiful to listen to. Our fellow travelers were fun to meet and talk with as well, there was about 10 of us in all. I highly recommend.

    GianMarco was an excellent guide! We all had some great cichettas and drank delicious wine and Prosecco! GianMarco gave us an incredible tour of Venice and answered all our questions! I’d definitely recommend this tour early in your trip so you have time to see all the places he talks about. We had a great group of people and we even went out for dinner and drinks together after the tour was over! Overall a great time!

    We visited 3 bars for wine and tapas with our selection of wine at each stop. The tapas/Chichetti were different at each so we got to try a variety with plenty to eat for everyone. A very enjoyable experience. Ourselves and others in the group had just flown in that morning, so it was a good way to start our Venice visit.
