Full description
The tour starts at the Church of San Giacomo di Rialto and takes participants to the oldest and most important market in the city, the Rialto Market: It supplies not only the residents but also the local bacari (bars) and restaurants with fresh ingredients. After discovering the market, participants will taste the fresh products during a culinary break in the form of a cicheto (typical Venetian snack) and a glass of wine (or water as a non-alcoholic variant). Then the group continues on the traces of commercial history along the shady hidden side streets to the church, where the guild of wine merchants was based. (It is not without reason that the adjacent bank along the Canal Grande is called "Riva del Vin", the "wine bank"!). The journey through time will take participants to the place where luxury goods such as silk or gold were sold and end with a view over the famous Rialto Bridge. The tour ends again at the Church of San Giacomo di Rialto. This tour is accessible as there are no bridges to cross during the route. Please note that there is only room for 1 wheelchair in the premises during the tasting. Please use line 1 to the “Rialto Mercato” stop to get to the meeting point.
