In this 3-hour private tour, our professional licensed guide will expertly guide you around Venice's best osterias & bacaris, explaining you in details the cicchettis, quintessential Venetian bite-sized foods. You will discover that each osteria/bacari has its own specialties, but the most common dishes served around Venice includes: polpette, spicy fried meatballs, marinated seafood served with polenta, marinated seafood or raw sashimi style fish, sauteed/stuffed vegetables, fried potato and ham combinations, fried olives, small crostini topped with proscuitto, sauteed vegetables or seafood and bacala mantecato. Bàcari-goers order an ombra when they’re craving a glass of wine - overall you will have a convivial atmosphere and fun tasting during this tour. You will be introduced to the real Venice, with parts of the city that you would not normally see on your own.
Please note we can also design a tailor-made food tour itinerary in Venice around your specific food and wine interests (with a few days prior notice). This tour provides a great introduction to the distinct flavors of the Venetian cuisine and is definitely best to experience in the evening, when the real Venetians are going out for an "ombra". If this is your 1st time in Venice, you can schedule this tour for your 1st evening in the city, to get inspiration for the rest of your stay.
