What to expect

If you are on vacation in Venice, you can't help but visit the area of Rialto, the first that developed and quickly became an important trading center. The city's main market was moved here at the end of the eleventh century. In this market all kind of trades took place between the residents of the city and the merchants, and they were able to buy and sell exotic goods just unloaded from the ships. In the sixteenth century, after a devastating fire, a complex of squares and arcades with areas dedicated to different products was built to the west of the Rialto Bridge, which still preserve the names of alleys and local squares: Erberia (vegetable market), Naranzaria (oranges), Speziali (spices) and Pescaria (fish). Even today, the people in Venice go in this market to buy fish, fruit and vegetables, in the numerous stands that result in a wonderful show of colors, flavors and aromas.

During your guided tour you can sample fresh, seasonal and local products, while listening to stories and gossip about the suppliers and learning how to select the best ingredients.

After visiting the Rialto Market, you can stop in three different bacari to enjoy a tasty break based on wine and on the famous Venetian appetizers: the cicchetti.
