Begin your adventure in the Cannaregio neighborhood, one of the few remaining residential areas of Venice and a popular after-work meeting spot for thirsty locals. Join your guide on a relaxing stroll through the area before crossing the Grand Canal on a traditional stand-up gondola to Rialto. First, stop at a small eatery where you will be able to taste some local dishes such as black ink calamari, polenta with seafood, tuna balls with tomatoes, and seasonal vegetables, all served in elaborate dishes. After this round of mouth-watering tastings, head to a few local spots that will help you better understand the culture of Cicchetti bars in Venice. Try a local sandwich called 'tramezzino' and some Venetian Spritz. Sample some creamy dried baccalà or stockfish (dried cod), before discovering some hidden spots near the Rialto and enjoy a little slice of Venice to yourself away from the crowds. Enjoy some meat and cheese Cicchetti in a hidden gem, then sample lasagna or risotto pasta in another. Finally, savor some delectable tiramisu before finishing the tour at Campo San Bortolomio, which is surrounded by great restaurants and shops.
