Overview

Meet your guide near Campo de la Maddalena, a small Venetian square that’s remained almost unchanged since medieval times. Admire the houses with pretty chimneys that throng the square, and then start your walking tour with a visit to a historical bar – formerly an old charcoal store – that specializes in cicchetti.

Different to the typical pasta and pizza cuisine that so many associate with Italian food, true Venetian gastronomy takes its influences from the coast and the plains that surround the city. The carb of choice is polenta – yellow cornmeal served grilled or wet – and seafood is an almost permanent fixture in many meals.

Chat with your guide about Venice and its food while snacking on small plates of juicy plump olives and marinated seafood served on wedges of creamy polenta. Then, continue your stroll to Strada Nuova, a busy street in the neighborhood of Cannaregio, to visit an 18th-century bar famous for its plates of polpette (spicy fried meatballs). Sample some of its popular varieties, and then hop aboard a Traghetti (Traghetto) for a quick ride along the canals.

Cross the Grand Canal, Venice’s major water-traffic corridor, and cruise into the Rialto area, stopping at Rialto Market for a glimpse of local life. Many Venetians buy their produce here, and the market’s bustling stalls are filled with fresh seafood, as well as vegetables and fruit.

Browse the wares, and then stroll to a bar in the center of Venice for more wine and cicchetti, sampling regional wines and sparkling prosecco. Continue to a couple of nearby bars to try their specialties, and then finish your tour on the steps of Rialto Bridge – an iconic Venice attraction.
