As you munch you'll learn the story of Venetian food, from the sea and farm to your mouth. Some of Venice's best cicchetti bars sit behind unassuming facades. Fresh produce has been coming into the Rialto Market from around the Region for hundreds of years. Do I dare eat a peach?Macelleria is the Italian word for "Butcher"Many vendors have been working in the Rialto market for generations.Learn the secrets of selecting the freshest produce. Tastings are a very important part of this tour.It wouldn't be the Rialto Market without fresh fish. Because it was a hub of trade, Venice was the first place in Europe to import many spices from the Far East and Venetian cuisine was once among the most flavorful in the world. Crostini (slices of toast topped with goodies) are a favorite cicchetti. We always stop by a few of the most beloved cicchetti bars in Venice. You'll also sit down for pasta.Squid ink spaghetti!

Is this tour wheelchair accessible?
Some of the Gaudí residences are not completely wheelchair accessible. Because of this, we regret that we cannot offer this tour to people who use wheelchair or have mobility limitations.
What if the weather is bad (rain, snow, hail, etc.) on the day of my tour?
Our tours run rain or shine so please dress for the elements. We also ask you to please remember hats and sunscreen if you are taking this tour in the summer as it might be very hot.
Does this tour accommodate vegetarians & people with food allergies?
Yes, but please contact our customer service team after you book ([email protected]) so that your guide will be aware on the day of the tour. Also, not all of the tastings on the tour can be substituted for others, but we will do our very best to make sure that you always have something to eat.
Can I take a gondola ride if I use a wheelchair?
No. Unfortunately, gondolas are not wheelchair accessbile.
I don't like seafood, should still take this tour?
Venetian cuisine is primarily based around the sea so there is a lot of seafood on this tour. If you aren't a fan of fish and shellfish we recommend avoiding this experience.
