A marvellous experience in Venice awaits you! Come with us on an exquisite four-hour tour through typical osterias, to artisanal food producers, spectacular monuments, beautiful artwork and must-see places. Prepare yourself for a foodie promenade amid the stunning sceneries of Venice led by a local expert guide!

Our journey starts at a charming ancient square that hasn’t changed since the middle ages, Campo San Giacomo a Rialto, that has been the trade center of the city for centuries. You’ll soon have your first taste of “Venice delis” and visit the fresh daily market that takes place here: you will learn about regional produce, visit the colorful stands and your guide will describe all the types of fruit, vegetables, fish and meat sold. The fish market in Venice is the oldest in Europe!

You’ll find that the best things to do in Venice often involve food. With our guided food tour, you’ll discover some of the best dishes Venice has to offer, with plates of olives from the nearby Lake Garda, cheese from the highlands of Asiago, soft polenta chunks served with marinated seafood, cuttlefish, stockfish and much more. All the food will be served with the famous wines of the area.

The land surrounding Venice is the largest producer of wine in Italy.

You will explore narrow picturesque alleyways, hidden canals, enter historical bars and shops, talk to local food makers and taste their work. You will be visiting Rialto Bridge, Campo San Bartolomeo, see Marco Polo’s house (from outside) and the Grand Canal, flanked by the most prestigious palaces!

The tour is a great combination of food, wine and sightseeing. There is more than enough great food served to replace your lunch. You will stop in more than 6 different eateries and enjoy a large variety of specialties from pasta to dessert, regional wines and proseccos. Did you know that Tiramisù was invented in Venice?

This memorable gourmet promenade ends in Campo San Giovanni e Paolo, one of Venice’s most popular squares. Here you will find the massive church that housed the funerary celebrations of the city’s leaders: the Doges. We will say our goodbyes with our bellies full of delicacies and our eyes full of the beauties of Venice.

Please note that the Fish Market is closed on Sundays, Mondays and on Public holidays.

Glenn F., Philadelphia, PA

We had a great time on this tour. Our guide, Ana, took us to places the locals know, introduced us to the street food of Venice , and provided lots of background information. She was very proud of her city and she was very personable.

Marcus F., Rugby, UK

Loved it. Monica, our guide was fantastic. Our group was great. The places we went were amazing especially Cantina Do Mori, my sort of place. I recommend this trip.

Julia T., Denver, CO

We are so glad we booked this! We were the only two to have booked that evening so we had our own personal tour with Giada. She was a such a delight and showed us how and where the locals do “Happy Hour”. Giada is an official tour guide of the city, and also a local so she had lots of fun and interesting stories about Venetian life. I would definitely recommend taking this tour to get a taste of authentic Venetian lifestyle.
