Make your eyes, ears and taste buds happy with this guided street food tour around Rialto area and the heart of the city.

You will taste delicious food and visit some of the city’s most fascinating sites. Explore the busy Rialto Market, Campo San Bartolomeo, Campo San Polo, Basilica dei Frari (from the outside), and more. You will taste a wide range of typical specialties, from the well-known cicchetti to regional cheese, from Buranelli biscuits to other traditional desserts.

All the food is included in the price (not drinks). It is highly recommended to take this tour on the first day of your staying in Venice. You will profit from the precious suggestions your guide will share with your group about where to go to appreciate good food, go out and spend your free time in the city. You can both choose the morning tour or the afternoon tour but, please, before you reserve keep in mind that in the afternoons and on Mondays the Fish Market is closed.

Furthermore, thanks to the spectacular panoramic views, this experience will be kept as a great memory of your holidays forever!

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.
