What you'll do

This is a perfect tour if it's your first time in Venice, or If you've already been here, but you've not explored it like a local yet.
Join me on the visit of Venice's most famous market, the Rialto market, pulsating heart of the historical Republic of Venice, that had been the neuralgic center of international trading for centuries. We will immerse ourselves in the ritual of the ombre (little glass of wine) and cicchetti (small appetizers). This ritual also recalls the attention of local people from the mainland. So, enjoy the magic atmosphere that you can experience in our bacari (Venetian winebars) . This tour includes 3 stops to taste different wines and appetizers, and a final stop for something sweet.
Once crossed the Rialto Bridge, I will escort you to see one of the most exclusive and stunning city views from the top of a beautiful terrace. We will then explore some hidden corners, such as a unique courtyard inside a bacaro, where we will stop for a glass of wine.
The several stops we will be making along the way will satisfy your palates and, although we will be in the heart of the city I will conduct you in some hidden corners you would never find on your own.

Hi, I'm a licensed tour leader, and I've been making tours for adults and kids for 3 years.
I love working in direct contact with people, and on Airbnb, I meet guests from everywhere. I consider this an excellent opportunity to learn from different cultures and habits, and I'm very happy when I feel like I gave the possibility also to my guests to learn something new from each other in a mutual exchange.
I aim to introduce you to the culture of Venice with its food and wine.

Where you'll be

We will start the tour not far from the Rialto bridge to immerse ourselves in tiny and secret alleys.
Then, let's jump on a gondola-traghetto to cross the Grand Canal and reach the pulsating heart of the city where we'll admire local and fresh products.
After the visit at a traditional bacaro, we'll cross the Rialto Bridge to see Venice from an exclusive point of view, on the top of the terrace of a beautiful 16th century's Palace.

Federica was a fantastic guide. She communicated well from beginning to the experience. The experience was something we wouldn’t have done ourselves and we found out so much about Venice. Thank you Federica, I do hope the move into wine tasting experiences happen for you!
