What to expect

Thanks to this tour you will dive into the genuine and friendly lagoon mood and join the lively aperitivo with the locals; get ready to taste local wines and to eat "cicchetti", typical gourmet snacks of this area, along the Cannareggio canal. You will move among the Bacari of Venice, traditional osterias of the lagoon, known for their simple decorations and warm atmosphere.

During your walking tour you will manage to taste:

  • Spritz: the cornerstone of Venetian aperitivo. Its name originates from "spritzen", Austrian word referring to the war period practice of watering down wine with sparkling beverages. In the 1920s, the cocktail we know today was invented and the sweet-tasting Aperol was added to sparkling water and wine
  • Crostini: toasted artisan bread topped or stuffed with fanciful products of the area, such as "sarde in saor" (sardines with caramelized onions, vinegar pine nuts and risings), cured meats, cheeses, truffle sauces, veggie balls and mixed fried snacks
  • Warm dishes: you will get the chance to taste some Venetian specialties such as risotto, "mozzarella in carrozza" (a deep-fried mozzarella sandwich), codfish with cornmeal and "melanzane alla parmigiana" (aubergines with tomato sauce, mozzarella and basil)
  • Espresso coffee and chocolate: conclude your tour experiencing one of the best espressos in town, along with delicious artisan chocolates prepared in the most famous confectionery of Venice
