What makes this tour special

Enjoy a gastronomical experience of Venetian Cicchetti and wine ‘Ombra’ on this foodie tour of Venice. 

On your private tour, you will:


This experience will be customised to you, according to your interests and your hotel location.

Enjoy wandering around beautiful Venice with your expert, English-speaking private guide on this gastronomic foodie tour of some of the best Cicchetti bars in this unique city on the water.

Cicchetti is a whole culture in Venice, and can be found on almost every street! Cicchetti refers to plates of tasty small eats like Spanish tapas that can be enjoyed as appetizers or even a meal. 

Cicchetti is eaten in a casual manner – with fingers and toothpicks, usually standing up by the counter or at tall outdoor tables, and often enjoyed with a small glass of wine that the locals call an ‘Ombra’ meaning shadow. 

On your private tour, your guide will tailor your route according to your preferences and hotel location. Discover several different taverns popular with the locals, but off the tourist trail, that serve delicious classics Cicchetti and Ombra. You’ll stop in three different places, sample different dishes and be able to soak up the authentic Venetian atmosphere! 

Venetian food is unlike food anywhere else in Italy – with its long history of trading, the food here makes extensive use of exotic spices, while its watery location means fish is on the menu more often than not. 

Venice can make a fantastic break from the usual pizza-and-pasta gastronomy of Italy, but with so many touristy restaurants on the island, it can be hard to make the most of Venetian cuisine and wine on your own.

On this private-guide-led exploration of Venice’s most bustling markets, cafés, and its famous Cicchetti bars, you will delve into an authentic side of Venetian culture, learning what to order, how to find great places and enjoying lots of tastings along the way – so make sure you have a hearty appetite before you join us!
