What you'll do

Venice is my home town and I know every single corner of it! I will give you a traditional and intimate tour of the 4 best, little and hidden osteria and bacari of the city where the true Venetians still go to enjoy a glass of house wine and a cicheto(venetian tapas) with friends. In a small group of maximum 6 people we will enjoy a glass of wine (4) at each spot and 3 freshly prepared cichetti (venetian tapas) to accompany the wine perfectly . We will do this away from the crowds that are so common in the area of san marco,rialto and the station so you can truely enjoy some downtime and get to know your fellow travellers and myself!
I recommend that you book this on your first day in Venice so you can make the most out of the information I give you on the tour !

I consider myself an outgoing and laid back person who is keen to learn about and discover different cultures. I was born and raised in Venice and have lived here most of my life, but I have also lived and worked in other countries such as Japan, Australia and South America!

As a classic Venetian from the Island, I am very passionate about the traditional food and wine my region produces. I have shared my culinary knowledge across to Toyko, Japan, where I act as a consultant for new Venetian and Italian restaurants.
This tour is the Original, 'Bacaro tour '- often imitated, never dupilcated.

Where you'll be

During our tour, we will visit 4 typical venetian bars, where we will drink a glass of wine and eat some super tasty, freshly prepared cicheti along the way! These places we attend are genuine spots, not tourist traps. Venice is well known to have many tourist traps which look like traditional places that provide people with false experiences so be careful!The tour starts at 6.30pm (this is the time many of the traditional bacari open for dinner)

It was our first evening in Venice and we highly recommend everyone to spend an evening with Natale. He was a great host and showed us delicious places you would never find on your own! It was great and so much fun!

Natale's tour takes you through the streets of Cannaregio to several little bacaro and osteria that I probably wouldn't have found, or known to visit, on my own. He peppers the tour with fun and interesting tidbits, but the way it is organized is more for the group as a whole to get to know each other. It was a perfect size of group, not too big (7 people including Natale and his girlfriend). I do think it was expensive considering everywhere we went Natale made a point of saying how inexpensive the house wine we drank was. The cichetti was very good and well chosen to introduce us to traditional Venetian food (the sardines in particular were very good). Natale is a proud Venetian and at times seems a little annoyed when answering questions but his girlfriend was very lovely.

Partager une soirée dans différents bacaros en partageant un verre de vin et en dégustant des cicchetti avec un vénitien a été une belle expérience et l'opportunité de faire de belles rencontres. C'est agréable et intéressant de partager ce moment avec un hôte local qui a pu m'expliquer ce que je buvais et ce que je mangeais, dans une ambiance décontractée et conviviale. Je recommande vivement !

I booked Natale’s tour with my girlfriend for our first evening in Venice - and I highly recommend you do the same! We met Natale and Emily who were both very friendly, welcoming and sociable. We had great conversation and enjoyed a locals perspective on the area, the culture and of course the food and drink! We were introduced to some beautiful little local spots where we tasted wonderful local cuisine and wines that are far more enjoyable (and cheaper!) than than most of the tourist trap areas. It was a real ‘live like a local’ introduction, which is exactly what we want when we travel - you won’t be disappointed! We couldn’t rate this tour any higher, it really was an exceptional evening. We will be enjoying the next few days even more now, with everything we have learned from Natale (and Emily!) - Thank you for a wonderful evening!
