Towards the end of the fifteenth century, Venice saw the birth of the first coffee store, opening the way to coffee shops as we know them today. This coffee experiment was a great success, seeing that by 1763 there were 218 locations commercializing in coffee.

Step away from the tourist trail to discover Venice’s culinary history from the days when the city was a major spice trade port through to the present day. As you learn about the influence of Venice’s maritime history, learn where the locals go to eat and hear tips for Venetian dishes to try. Explore Rialto Market, and then visit a bakery, butchers and centuries-old spice shop. Cap it all with visits to renowned ‘cichetti’ bars and enjoy the Venetian take on Spanish tapas with wine.

Meet your guide in central Venice, and start with an intro to the city and its culinary history. Hear how Venice was the center of the spice trade route during the Middle Ages, and of its love for fresh seafood, caught locally, of course.
In recent years, the cuisine’s reputation has been tarnished by tales of overpriced tourist restaurants. So follow your guide to discover the places where the locals eat and avoid the tourist traps.
Stroll through Rialto Market to see stalls heaving with fresh fruit, vegetables and fish, and learn all about Venice’s maritime history. Then, stroll through the streets to discover beloved eateries such as a bakery, butchers and one of the oldest spice stories in the world.
Next you’ll board a gondola to cross the Grand Canal to Cannaregio. Once known as the Jewish Ghetto and surrounded by walls to keep residents in, Cannaregio is a favorite among locals today for its great food scene, beautiful streets and piazzas and its much more relaxed vibe away from the tourist route.
All this talk of food will make you hungry so we’ll be sure to sample sumptuous local wine and cicchetti along the way. On this side of the Grand Canal, you’ll stop at two of Venice’s most popular local bars. 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.

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. In fact, we bet you’ll be shocked to learn just how much of Venetian food (and Italian food as a whole) has been influenced by the Jewish community. 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.
After thee hours, your tour finishes near Rialto Bridge.
