Bacaro tour unblended means to have a food and wine experience in the pure venetian way, not lower levels.
Venetians think that a bacaro tour is much more then eating and drinking, is actually a kind of ritual.
The bacari are more than wine-bars, they are institutions where local go to socialize, relax and have fun.
This tour is a full immersion into this local ‘philosophy’, a must-do if you really want to discover the most genuine Venice.

What To Expect

We will explore Venice’s back-streets to find the best bacari where you will mingle with locals.
You will learn (and taste) what ‘cicchetti’ are (and why you don’t have to call it tapas! ) and why we call ‘ombra’ a glass of wine.
The tastiness of Cicchetti will delight your palate, the variety of wines will tickle your soul and the local atmosphere will win you over.
This tour is a perfect introduction to Venice and will give you the confidence (thanks to all the precious insider tips and info shared by our local guides!) to keep exploring it by yourself avoiding the classical touristy traps.

Moving on the back-streets we will stop in 4 different bacari where only locals go to fully experience the Venetian ritual of a Bacaro tour!
You will taste 5 traditional cicchetti and 4 glasses of wine (not forgetting our bubbly prosecco!) learning their recipes, history and characteristics.
You will explore Venice walking from one bacaro to the other on quiet alleys full of atmosphere.
During the morning tour, we will also visit the local market (fish, fruits and vegetables), from where the fresh ingredients used to prepare cicchetti come.
The tour will end in campo dell’Erbaria a lively little square close to the Rialto bridge on the market side, a place full of history and other interesting bacari where to go after the tour.

Elisabetta took our small group on a food and wine tour. We got an insider’s look into some really awesome places that I don’t think we would have found on our own. We were introduced to some traditional Venetian foods that were unique to us and really delicious — for example the baccala mantecato; creamy salted cod served on toasted bread. (Yummy!).

Elisabetta is a warm and witty woman with great stories to tell and an intimate knowledge of beautiful Venice. A tour with Elisabetta is a must.
Bacaro tour for foodies and great fun!

We are a family of four (kids 18/20) from the U.S. touring Venice for the first time. Elisabetta is Venetian and her passion for the city and the history is evident. We were so lucky to have her as our guide… the tour was incredible and it felt like we were locals hanging out as old friends. She is such a wonderful person. She introduced us to many new types of food typical to Venice and had plenty of wine to pair with it. Thank you Elisabetta! ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! And for anyone reading this review, just go ahead and book this tour… you won’t be disappointed.
Food/wine tour to local spots in Venice with a fun, enthusiastic tour leader!

My husband and our two friends had the absolute pleasure of Elisabetta being our tour leader for a food/wine experience in Venice. She’s so warm, friendly and has the best sense of humor that kept us laughing the entire time! Elisabetta also shared interesting facts about Venice as we made our way from one place to another. She took us to spots that locals go to that we would have never found on our own - which we loved!! The food/wine at every place was terrific and she made sure we got food based on any dietary restrictions!! At the end of the tour Elisabetta asked if we needed help getting a reservation for dinner and she called restaurants to seamlessly help arrange a table for that night - it was so sweet! We highly recommend Elisabetta for any tour you are looking for during your time in Venice - would give her 10 stars!!!
Fun, tasty, nice lunch and walk.

We had a very nice tour with Elisabeta. She is a local Venetian and shared the cities rich history with us. We visited 3 restaurants and tasted multiple chichetttis, Prosecco’s and even a traditional Venetian Spritz (not the same as Aperol). It was a fun afternoon and we would recommend.
