There are two words that you may hear a lot in Venice - "Cicchetti" and "Bacari". The word Cicchetti comes from Venetian dialect, meaning "a small and savory snack", something eaten by locals invarious little Bacari (local wine bars).
The variety of Cicchetti is amazing and you get to tuck into several as your local foodie guide leads you to the best and hidden bacari on the island.
Prosecco for Breakfast! - If you are visiting the most magical island on earth, why not drink prosecco for breakfast - it's made in the surrounding region after all! The first stop on this local food tour introduces you to your first taste of cicchetti, with some local bubbly wineto accompany.
A Hop, Skip & a Gondola! - A trip to Venice wouldn't be complete without a ride on a gondola. Instead of taking the bridge to cross Venice's Grand canal, your local guide will take you across the water on a short 2-minute Gondola ride! Cameras at the ready!
The Spritz - After sampling some cicchetti and prosecco at your first stop, you'll progress onto another varietyat your second Bacaro stop. Enter the Spritz! Whether you have a sweet tooth or like bitter drinks, there is a Spritz for everyone, along with some other delicious cicchetti to sample alongside.
Ombra & Lunch - The slang word for a small glass of wine is called an "Ombra". This means shade in Italian and your local guide will explain why the wine has acquired such a name. Stop number three will give you a taste of the local favorite Ombra, but now you've sampled the local cicchetti, it's time for something more substantial. Bring on the pasta!
