Italian cuisine is so strongly regional that every city and town has its own unique specialties—and there’s no better way to discover Venice’s food and wine than under the eye of a local foodie. On this Venice food tour, sample several specialties, including wine, seafood, gelato, and “cicchetti” (Venetian tapas), as you learn about the city’s culinary culture.
  • You'll start at
    Campo San Giacomo di Rialto
    Campo S. Giacomo di Rialto, 30125 Venezia VE, Italy
    Meet your guide by the fountain in front of the Chiesa San Giacomo di Rialto (Rialto San Giacomo church), behind the famous Rialto bridge. The exact address is Campo S. Giacomo di Rialto, 1. Your guide will be holding a sign reading "Savor Italy Tours".

    Stop: 3 hours
    There are 8 stops on this tour with plenty of food to make sure you do not need breakfast nor dinner. You will start your day with some coffee, like the Italians do. Venice has a tradition that goes a long way back in time in making tasty pastries, and you will get to try some of the heavenly delicious pastries that the Venetian has to offer. After your sweet tooth has been satisfied, stroll through some wine bars and savor typical Venetian drinks accompanied by the famous cicchetti. Try 5-6 different types of fish and learn how each dish is created. Even Venice is known for seafood dishes, there are some delicious local cured meat that you have to try too! Then go to the backstreet, visit the oldest bar, find out where the famous lover in history used to frequent and of course try their signature dish. After that, crawl your way to get some traditional Venetian cookies and learn why they are so good, and the tour will end with some authentic gelato! During this gelato stop, the guide will explain how to identify good quality gelato shops even in a middle of a touristy place. The wonderful food provided on the the tour are all in season to make sure all of our clients try the freshest recipes.  (On Tuesday morning, and Saturday afternoon tour, or on a special holiday there is a possibility that there would be no risotto, but we will replace it with another local favourite or dish of the day!)

We arrived at the church by the Rialto bridge and Anna was waiting for us. We started on time as we introduced each other. We walked through the market close to the Rialto bridge, although as we were on a later tour, the fish market was over. First stop was a cichetti bar

Anna was so knowledgable and passionate about all aspects of the tour. A side of Venice an average tourist would never see. As far from St Marks Sq and the tourists traps as you could get. A chance to meet local shop keepers with a real passion for their products. Highly

Host Anna was lovely. Friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about the food and drink of Venice. There was a bit too much ‘stuff on bread’ for us and not quite enough to drink (but we are probably ‘above average’ when it comes to having a drink). It was good and I’d recommend it.

We decided to do this tour on the third day of our four day trip to Venice... the only regret we have is that we didn't do it at the start! Anna was fantastic, really friendly and knowledgeable … she took us to some real hidden gems, if only we had time to visit them all again!
