What you'll do

There’s a reason why Venice is the capital of aperitivo - reasons to stop and sample something delicious are as plentiful as the bridges in this fairytale floating city. Sip on Italian varietals in your choice Bacaro, a tiny bar where you can get a glass of wine and a cicchetto (mouth-watering savoury snacks) and share the bar counter with other Venetians, who’ve also earned their first aperitivo of the day. The gastronomic delights won’t end here - fancy tasting Osteria della Vedova’s famous meatballs, with a 150-year old secret recipe? Or perhaps the heavenly Biscotti Bussolai Buranelli (butter biscuits from Burano)? The best way to understand Venice is definitely by exploring its food culture, with a sated stomach and a matching smile.


Where you'll go

Let your guide lead the way to some of the best bacari that only a local foodie could point out. After sampling your choice of local wine, Aperol spritz or Campari, you’ll be fuelled up for some exploring. Just a stone’s throw away from Piazza San Marco, you’ll get the chance to try traditional Venetian crustless sandwiches or ‘tramezzinis’ with ham and mushrooms at Rosa Salva, a pasticceria open since 1867. Keep walking towards an old fish market where you could try creamed codfish or marinated sardines. Then, hidden away a few steps from the Rialto bridge is a must-try foodie haven; from ‘polenta bianca’ to ‘fritto misto’ (fried seafood) and ‘lasagnette con nero di seppia’ (pasta with squid ink), you may just have to undo that top button.
