For food and wine enthusiasts only, this two-hour, three-stop tour is a Venetian sampler of the food and wine that regularly satisfies the demanding Venetian palate. We will introduce you to the seasonal selections of savory tastes offered by three distinctive bàcari: the centuries-old Venetian tradition of stand-up wine & snack bars.
The wine selections will seem endless, featuring regional selections of the Tre-Venezie: the classics of the Veneto like Prosecco, Soave and Valpolicella, sparkling wines, aromatics and rare reds of Trentino Alto-Adige, and intense native reds and mineral-laced whites of Friuli Venezia Giulia. We’ll help you sort through them, with informed recommendations according to your interests and preferences.
Pair your wines with an endless variety of ‘cichetti’ snacks, ranging from the humble egg-and-anchovy or fried polpette croquette (some of the original cichetti), to traditional whipped bacalà and sarde in saòr, to refined gourmet combinations featuring the freshest ingredients and limited only by imaginations of their artisan creators.
Conducted by a wine expert, this relaxed, yet informative walking tour is the perfect orientation for eating and drinking Venetian-style. Because the freshest cichetti and most convivial atmosphere before lunch and before dinner, we’ll commence our two hour walks at either 11:30 or 5:30pm. We’ll visit three bàcari, but we’ll also point out others you may want to visit during the rest of your stay, along with our favorite sit-down eateries.
