Full description
Explore the quaint alleys and historic streets of Venice on a 3-hour food tasting tour. Along with your foodie guide, taste some of the city’s best dishes and learn the history of this beautiful city along the way.   Dive into the genuine and friendly mood of the city and join the lively aperitivo hour (a social cocktail hour). Sample local specialties based on the availability of fresh ingredients. Start with a glass of Spritz, the cornerstone of the Venetian aperitivo. This cocktail was invented in the 20s by adding sweet Aperol to sparkling water and wine.   Then, try a high-quality Prosecco along with crostini, toasted artisanal bread. You’ll also taste some of the following Venetian specialties: risotto, mozzarella in carrozza (deep fried mozzarella sandwich), codfish with cornmeal, and melanzane alla parmigiana (aubergines with tomato sauce and mozzarella).   To finish, enjoy one of the best espressos in town along with amazing artisanal chocolates in the city’s most famous confectionery.

    Due to Corona we had a private tour with Valentina. She was super nice and told us a lot about the history of Aperol and Bacari. We had a good chat and had a fun evening. At 3/5 stations there was cicchetti, on a fried mozzarella and at the end ice cream. One was more than full. Only 4/5 stars because, based on the description, we were looking forward to various specialties in addition to cicchetti.

    A gorgeous night tour with Beatrice. We had fun, ate yummy food and tried Italian drinks with our new Scottish friends.

    The only contribution of this excursion is the fact of going through qq good addresses ... the guide tells 2-3 anecdotes without more. A bit pricey for that.
