Full description

Eat your way around Venice on a tasting tour of some of the city's eateries, and see historical monuments and attractions along the way. Begin in the San Marco district and stroll to the Rialto Bridge over the Grand Canal. Visit 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).

End on the Campo Santa Margherita in the historical sestiere (district) of Dorsoduro near the university.

Sylvia was a fabulous guide to the wonderful street food of Venice! She shared lots of little stories and history as we walked, and really gave us an introduction to the local way of life. I highly recommend that you do this tour at the beginning of your visit - our only disappointment was that we were leaving the next time and did not have time to check out all of her suggestions. I guess we will just have to plan a return visit…

We had an excellent, fun day with Silvia and the group. Silvia is very knowledgeable and she took us to some fabulous eateries of Venice, explaining the history. She also gave us some handy hints on how to find our way around. We had a great day and would highly recommend.

Our guide Silvia gave us a lot of interesting background information and details about Venice in a humorous way and in easily understandable English. You could tell that she has lived in Venice for many years and was able to convey authentic experiences. The dishes were varied, tasty and in sufficient quantities. We loved it!
