Famous Dishes of Venice, Wine Tasting and Gondola Experience

Embark on a delicious adventure with this three-hour Venice tour that takes in its most famous Bacari wine bars and their famous cicchetti dishes. Start off from Campo del la Maddalena, a small raised square that is unchanged since medieval times, and is famous for its modest houses topped with interesting chimneys. Visit Cantina Vecia Carbonera, a much loved bar that specializes in cicchetti, for your first taste of these Venetian-style tapas.

Try some of the city’s famous specialties, from plates of olives to marinated seafood served on wedges of soft polenta. This atmospheric bar has a long history, and used to be an old charcoal store, so learn about the city as you feast on some of its specialities. Continue on, walking into Strada Nuova, and calling into Alla Vedova, or the widow’s place, which has been open since the 18th century and is famous for its polpette, spicy fried meatballs. Head to Campo de Santa Sofia and jump on a gondola to cross Canal Grande into the Rialto area.

Pay a visit to the local fishmarket before heading to Al Merca, a hole-in-the-wall place that serves a simple but delicious selection of cicchetti and great regional Italian wines and proseccos. Stop by a couple of other nearby bars to try a few more specialties and to finish up this food lovers adventure through the city. This Venice tour then comes to an end on the steps of the Rialto Bridge, where you can head back to one of your new favorite bars, or easily make your way to any other part of the city.
