Full description

Take a seat and enjoy the comfort of a not crowded gondola: a 4 seated gondola, so you will really enjoy your ride and the relaxing quiet of Venetian canals without worrying. In this enchanting and relaxing way to enjoy the sights, charm, and beauty of Venice, you’ll admire elegant canal-side palaces, unique bridges, and the magic atmosphere that you’ll only find here. For the second part of the tour, let a local tour guide take you on a tour to discover Venice while tasting its traditional “cichetti” (snacks) and wine. The magic of Venice lies in the labyrinth of its back alleys and the thriving “bacari” that are hidden there, away from the crowds and touristic places. The bacari are characteristic little bars where locals use to stroll in the evening or while heading home from work, between an “ombra” and a “cicchetto”. "Ombra" in Venetian dialect means "glass of wine", while "cicchetto" is the traditional snack locals use to have while sipping their wine. Get ready to lose yourself in unexpected delights and the real side of Venice, with lively locals and their traditions.

A bit of a wait at the boat because a lot of people…. Cents really the “tourist thing”. Quiet gondola ride without commentary (too bad… I took a gondola ride with commentary again but the transmission was not going through!! Not to be done without the guide by your side)…. Then a little tour in the alleys of Venice with very nice Daniela for a tasting of local wines and cichetti. Nice but nothing more.

This was a great way to start our stay in Venice! The gondola ride was lovely, could've stayed on it for hours! But after the 30 minute ride the food tour was perfect since we didn't know good local spots to eat! I highly recommend this tour!
