Art and cicchetti

The perfect combination between art and food exists and is enclosed in this wonderful walking tour of Venice! A small group tour and the explanation of our local guide are the perfect ingredients to discover this wonderful city.

After meeting your dedicated guide, start the day in a historic café of the city with the first taste of an Italian breakfast: the typical combination of espresso (or cappuccino) and a sweet croissant. Then you will have the chance to stroll through the charming and romantic streets (here traditionally called Calli) and admire the beauty of the elegant palaces and bridges reflected in the waters of the canals.

Thanks to the guide's explanation, you will learn how the history of Venice has influenced its architecture, ranging from the Byzantine style of the wonderful and imposing St Mark's Basilica overlooking the famous St Mark's Square, to the lightness of the Gothic lines of the Doge's Palace (Palazzo Ducale).

With this tour you can combine the pleasure of admiring the highlights of the city, along with some very pleasant stops for your palate! In fact, you will be able to taste the typical snacks of local products (called cicchetti) that the Venetians love to accompany with a glass of wine.

You will take wonderful pictures of the Grand Canal and the famous Ponte di Rialto (Rialto Bridge) and then end this entertaining tour by savoring another Venetian specialty in the Rialto Fish Market (on market closing days we will stop in another local shop).
