Venice food tour: Rialto market and cicchetti tasting with wine

Venice -

Book your Venice food tour with Musement today! See the Rialto Market and enjoy wine and cicchetti tasting as you walk the romantic streets of the city. Venice has developed a reputation for over-priced, touristy food — that could not be further from the truth. Our Venice food tour is going to change your opinion of Venetian food by sending you beyond the worn out tourist spots with an expert Venetian foodie, who will school you in the rich culinary history of Venice, while showing you the best spots to sample its gastronomic delights.
- We’ll start by visiting the twin hearts of Venice’s food scene; the Rialto fruit and vegetable market and the Rialto fish market.
- All this talk of food will make you hungry so we’ll be sure to sample sumptuous local wine and cicchetti along the way. The cicchetti is Venice’s answer to the Spanish tapas and includes local delicacies like crostini (bread with delicious toppings like whipped cod) and Venetian panini (technically sandwiches, but so much more). At each bar your guide will help you to choose two of the best cicchetti and of course a glass of wine, Prosecco or spritz to wash it down.
- Next you’ll board a gondola to cross the Grand Canal to Cannaregio, a favorite among locals for its great food scene, beautiful streets and piazzas and its much more relaxed vibe away from the tourist route.
- Your adventure here continues to another local bar for a different kind of cicchetti. Fritti is a common dish of fried fish or vegetables made popular in this very area. We’ll take our fritti as the locals do – on a stick, to go – and embark on a short stroll across bridges and piazzas of Cannaregio.
- Your tour culminates in a stop at our favorite Venetian restaurant; a friendly and atmospheric neighborhood trattoria called La Colonna. Here you’ll be warmly greeted by the host and served a plate of the day’s pasta special, washed down of course, with another glass of wine.
- With intimate groups of 12 people or fewer we don’t just want you to eat well for a day, we want to show you how to eat like a Venetian for your entire stay.
