Venice Private Street Food Tour


Local specialties, wine & cicchetti

Taste the flavors of Venice

Can you picture yourself walking down the alleys of Venice with a mouth-watering fried fish paper cone in your hand, or sitting in a local bacaro tasting the real Venetian spritz? Let’s add to that a selection of cicchetti, a glass of the best regional wine and a delicious gelato from an artisanal parlour to have the perfect day!

We selected the best street food venues all over the city to make you discover the authentic flavours of Venice. So don’t expect pizza or pasta alla bolognese on this tour, since they’re not local regional specialties. Expect instead delicious fish and seafood, tasty cicchetti, mozzarella in carrozza, local cheese, mouth-watering  pastries or delicious artisanal gelato and, of course, spritz and wine.

Do you want to know the best part of it? During our private food tour we will also tell you a lot of interesting back stories about food and wine culture in Venice and we’ll guide you through the city’s most interesting neighbours to the discovery of famous sights and hidden gems.

Food, wine and exploration: what’s better to kickstart your journey in Venice? And don’t worry if you’re vegetarian, have some allergy or particular requests: write us a message and we’ll create a customized tour for you.
