The Venetian Aperitif - Traditional Food & Wine Experience in Venice
Get ready to lose yourself in unexpected delights and the real side of Venice, with a guided tour of Venice while tasting its traditional “cichetti” (snacks) and wine.
It is said that to really understand a country you should taste its food. This is particularly true in Italy, with its everlasting culinary tradition and where good food is still an essential part of everyday life. This is true also in Venice.
Let a local tour guide take you on a guided tour to discover Venice while tasting its traditional “cichetti” (snacks) and wine.
“It’s always Ombra & Cichetti Time”
The magic of Venice lies in the labyrinth of its back alleys and the thriving “bacari” that are hidden there, away from the crowds and touristic places.
The bacari are characteristic little bars where locals use to stroll in the evening or while heading home from work, between an “ombra” and a “cicchetto”. "Ombra" in Venetian dialect means "glass of wine", while "cicchetto" is the traditional snack locals use to have while sipping their wine.
Get ready to lose yourself in unexpected delights and the real side of Venice, with lively locals and their traditions.
