Meet your local foodie guide in the heart of Venice and start your day as the locals do, with an authentic Italian espresso in a bustling local bar. After this sacred ritual you’ll be energized for a visit to Venice’s historic Rialto seafood and produce market where locally-sourced seafood and vegetables grown on the nearby Saint Erasmus island of the Venetian lagoon take center stage.
After a typically Italian start to the day, a Venetian “ombra” aperitif is waiting for you. After all, in Venice it’s NEVER too early for an aperitif. Stop in one of the most traditional “Bacaro” of the city, where you will savor a traditional “ombra de vin” (a typical glass of local wine) while sampling some local products.
Brace yourself for the main event: the original Venetian “cicchetti”, a sacred tradition among locals. Whether with seafood, prosciutto, cheese, sauces, or meat, savoring these bite size wonders in Venice is truly a must! While eating and drinking, your foodie sidekick will talk about the deeply rooted gastronomic history of Venice, the centuries old exotic spice trade and local seafood traditions.
Last but not least, a little something to satisfy the sweet tooth. Enter one of the most historic gelaterias in Venice and enjoy an artisanal gelato made from the freshest and most genuine local ingredients. After enjoying a gelato with your guide, this full immersion Venice food experience of great simplicity and unique flavors comes to a conclusion.
