After a short stroll around dusk, treat yourselves to a quintessential Venetian experience at the bustling bacari dotted across the city. This evening food tour will take you to a selection of small, authentic haunts where you can enjoy a glass of wine and cicchetti, a traditional tapas-like snack, in true Venetian style. Your expert guide will accompany you and explain a bit more about Venice’s very particular bacaro culture, which is just as much about meeting up with friends, as it is about the excellent food. Before setting out for dinner, soak up the lively atmosphere of this Venetian institution, interacting with residents around oak barrels that serve as tables.
Rubbing shoulders with Veneziano speaking locals, join in on this early evening phenomenon, hopping between cozy watering holes characterized by quirky and funky décor. Dig into an assortment of traditional Cicchetti that make up the daily-changing, seasonal menus, all paired with ombras - small glasses of organic house wines or spritz concoctions. Expect to taste bite-sized sandwiches, fresh seafood, deep-fried cheeses, artichoke hearts, pickled specialties, and artisanal cold cuts.
