This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Canal Grande, Veneto

You will 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.

Duration: 20 minutes

Pass By: Ponte di Rialto, Veneto


Pass By: Ca' d'oro, Veneto


Stop At: Mercati di Rialto, Veneto

Well start by visiting the twin hearts of Venices food scene; the Rialto Fruit and Vegetable Market and the Rialto Fish Market. As you peruse the overflowing aisles, your guide will explain how ancient trade routes and a strong maritime history have shaped the diets of Venetians; and how they still get the freshest fish from the Mediterranean.

    This was a fantastic way to start our visit to Venice. We did it on our first day, in the hopes that we would get recommendations of food and places to try whilst we were staying. And we certainly did.
    The tour is very informative about the history of food in Venice and also about Venice itself.
    Just make sure not to each much for breakfast, as within 10 minutes of the tour starting you're having your first bite to eat and first Spritz!!
    We had a great selection of food to try, and was great to have a local take us round the food markets and give us some insight into them and also how Venetians eat, and why they tend to eat small plates.
    Our tour guide was wonderful and happy to answer all questions that were posed to her.
    This is a great tour, and I would highly recommend it.

    A thoughtful overview of the Rialto Market and the Cecchetti shops around it. Kristina was our guide and she was passionate but easy to understand. We left with full bellies and smiles on our faces.

    Our tour started in the rain but that didn't dampen our spirits. Christina knew all the secret spots and was friendly with the vendors in the market. The food, its history and the wine samplings all added to a great tour. I only wish that we had more time .

    Barbara was so enthusiastic about her city. There were just three of us so we really got an intimate detailed tour. The restaurant chosen for our lunch was wonderfully quaint. It's a great way to see and taste Venice.
