Cicchetti & Wine Eve Tour of the Jewish Quarter

fr £43pp

The best time to experience true Venetian culture is in the evening, when the light is waning and the locals seek out their favourite bars for friends, food, and fun. It is at this hour when the hectic pace of day turns into a relaxed stroll and the canals are at their most picturesque. If you were looking for a chance to experience the local version of "happy hour", this is your chance! Do as the locals do and join us for this Venetian tradition as we eat and drink our way through the city discovering new wines and cicchetti appetizers and enjoy a stroll through the historic Jewish quarter.As no Italian edible should be without an excellent glass of wine, each sampling will be paired with an ombra, a small glass of one of the regions many renowned varieties (and included together with the food in the tour price). Your guide will share fascinating insights such as how the word ombra, which means "shadow," comes from a centuries-old tradition when merchants would sell their wine in the shadow of St. Mark's bell tower in order to keep themselves, and the wine, cool. Friends would gather in the square after a hard day's work to catch up, drink a glass of wine, and have a laugh. Your guide will take you into the heart of this spirit, which still continues today. Throughout the experience you'll be as relaxed as you would be if you were out for the evening with a close group of friends; an intimacy also made possible by our small group size of 12 people or fewer.

This tour is a perfect way to get to know Venice, both as a must-do introductory city tour for new visitors, as well as for anyone interested in the city's history. This new combined Venice in 1 Day Tour includes two sightseeing tours of Venice through which you can truly experience and appreciate the uniqueness and splendour of the city. Start with the popular Venice Walking Tour. You'll take a leisurely stroll through the streets of Venice, learning about its colourful past through its most characteristic and iconic attractions along with its lesser-known sites. The tour is composed of two parts and allows you to discover the lesser-known places of Venice and to try a means of transport found only in this city! During your walking tour you will explore the area around Piazza San Marco and Rialto Bridge. Learn about the top attractions and stop for photos in front of Venice's cultural centerpieces such as Teatro la Fenice, Scala del Bovolo and Rialto Bridge. Your guide will determine the exact itinerary, depending on the day. Please note that there is no visit to San Marco Square or St Marks Basilica. After your walking tour get ready to hop aboard a classic gondola boat (for up to 6 people) and enjoy a 30-minute ride through the famous Grand Canal as well as the smaller canals around the neighbourhood of San Marco and Rialto. The Gondola is as unique as Venice itself; their crescent-shaped hulls and their forcole that allow the Gondelieri to position their oars in many different ways are the secrets to how these long and slender crafts can navigate the narrow and intricate network of waterways of Venice.
