Discover Venetian gastronomy and traditional aperitifs during this guided walking tour. In a few hours, you'll savour the local specialties which form the backbone of the floating city's apertivo culture.

In three different bars you will sample a variety of cichetti, the small appertizer dishes served before lunch or dinner. Prepared with seafood, meat or vegetables, these tapas-style dishes – usually served alongside a glass of wine – are a popular Venetian tradition.

Your guide will introduce to you several local wines, and tell you all you need to know about the culinary culture of Venice and Italy.

Enjoy the authentic tastes of Italy in the friendly, relaxed atmosphere of the city's bars!
