    The guide (Lorenzo) was very knowledgeable and friendly.

And he even helped make a reservation at an excellent restaurant. I learned a lot about Venice and had amazing food.

What people are saying about Rialto

We visited 3 bars, we were entitled to 1 drink and a few typically Venetian bites. For the first time in all of our activities in Italy, French took precedence over English, even though there were more of us. Our guide was pleasant, funny and a bit of history with the activity. I recommend that you do the activity with an appetite if you really want to taste and enjoy the bites. We should have done the activity earlier to be able to benefit from the experience later.
