Stroll through vibrant, off-the-beaten-path San Polo.
Learn how to enjoy cicchetti like a local.
Finish with a delicious gelato-based treat.
Step off the tourist track and into the neighborhood of San Polo to meet your expert local guide and small group of fellow foodies. Your guide will give you a brief introduction to the traditional foods and flavors of Venice, then take you to one of their favorite modern wine bars for an aperitivo. Enjoy two small plates of bread-based cicchetti and a spritz, Venice’s unofficial cocktail.
After a brief stroll past the Campo dei Frari and Scuola Grande di San Rocco, your next stop is at a beloved osteria in a beautifully restored building. Here you'll share a board of cold cuts and cheese with a glass of prosecco.
Next, visit a local canal-front wine bar specializing in fried cicchetti, a favorite starter among Venice locals. You’ll taste a few along with a glass of local vino as your guide tells you about the culture of sharing food in the lagoon.
Tucked away from the main streets in the Dorsoduro neighborhood, the fourth venue is a cozy restaurant where you'll enjoy a plate of traditional pasta paired with a glass of wine.
From there, you'll head to one of the city's most iconic gelato shops to end your evening on a sweet note!
