Cicheti & Nizioeti Gourmet Tour
Discover Venice Through Food Tasting and Street Signs
DURATION: UP TO 2-HOURS
This is a gourmet discovery tour around the bustling Rialto market and other central areas. During this tour, you will see the city slow down and Venetians finally meet up to relax, eat, drink, and gossip!
With an expert English-speaking guide, you will indulge in the same pleasures by tasting wine and savoring delicious "cicheti," or finger food. There is tremendous variety, and options include anything from simple cheese or salami to almost any kind of seafood, fried and grilled vegetables, sweet and sour sardines, baby artichokes, creamy codfish, and much, much more!
Local wine bars are popularly known as “bàcari,“ a term originating from the wine god Bacchus. As for the drinks you will find a great variety of local wines (Soave, Prosecco, Cabernet, Valpolicella) and a good selection from all Italian regions: Tuscany, Piedmont, Trentino, Alto Adige, Friuli Venezia-Giulia, Puglia, and Sicily to name the most important.
Street names contain so much history in Venice that simply wandering from place to place and reading the "nizioeti" (street signs) can teach you much of the history and people of this old town.
This is a late afternoon tour, and is highly recommended for the food and wine connoisseur!
