After meeting with the the group, we will start tasting some local wine and food in 3 different traditional bars. We'll make our way through the Venice hidden alleyways and over the bridges to discover the real Venice off the tourist track. All the guides are very friendly and enthusiastic, but most importantly they know Venice very well as they were born here: you will get to take some photos of the "real" Venice away from the touristy path and traps, whilst also stopping at 3 authentic "bacari" (the traditional bars in Venice) on the way, where you will taste a "cichetto" (little traditional Venetian snack) and a glass of local wine (or non alcoholic drink). It's guaranteed you will have a fun time whilst getting to know this city more! We enjoy making the group participating in the discussion and answering any questions you may have along the way. Once the tour is finished, you can ask all the questions you might have, including for example what is the best spot where you can get a Gondola Ride to explore Venice by the Canals, the best restaurant to finish off your evening, or any other tips! * Please note: if there isn't availability for a particular date, just get in touch with me! Also, contact me first if you are a big group!
