What To Expect

San Polo
Your first stop is the bacaro (wine bar) of choice among locals for an aperitif in the Rialto area. They’re known for their high-quality light bites and wine.

20 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Mercati di Rialto
We’ll visit the twin hearts of Venice’s food scene; the Rialto Fruit and Vegetable Market and the Rialto Fish Market. As you peruse the overflowing aisles, your guide will explain how ancient trade routes and a strong maritime history have shaped the diets of Venetians; and how they still get the freshest fish from the Mediterranean.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Locals love this unfussy bar for its custom tramezzini sandwiches with high-quality Italian ingredients. This is the place where most people working in the Rialto area stop for lunch or for a quick break.

Jennifer was great! She showed us small local places with tasty cicchetti and cocktails. This was my favorite activity while we were in Venice.
