Full description

Eat your way around Venice on a tasting tour of some of the city's eateries, and see historical monuments along the way. Follow your foodie guide through the historic Rialto Market alongside the Grand Canal. End at Campo Santa Margherita square, surrounded by local restaurants and farmers’ markets. Meet your guide in the San Marco district. Cross the Rialto Bridge to visit the Rialto Market and marvel at the colorful fruit and vegetable stalls. Experience everyday life in the city as the locals come to purchase fresh fish and other ingredients.

Next, go to Campo San Polo and enter the Basilica dei Frari. Pass the square of Campo San Bartolomeo, where the locals like to gather. Along the way, taste a wide range of food specialties, from regional cheeses to buranelli biscuits and traditional cakes.

Sample some sweet tiramisù in the city where it was invented, and experience the unique culture of cicchetti, the tapas-like snacks loved by Venetians served in typically cozy bàcari (bars).

Had an awesome time in our street food tour. Dennys our guide was amazing and had a lot of great insights about the history of Venice and things to do in the different neighborhoods. Would recommend doing the tour early in your visit, as it will help you get acclimated to the city and places to eat and hang out!

Anna provided a lot of great information about Venice, the locals, markets and provided a great experience as we walked through Venice and tasted the street food which was very delicious. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a better understanding of Venice and it’s street foods.

ana was an excellent guide with genuine passion and local knowledge. the tour was well planned and we had a good bunch of fellow travellers in our group. the food was local, delicious and we got an insight into areas of Venice we would not have found by ourselves. Well worth taking this great tour.
