We really enjoyed the Cichetti & Wine Tour. It was a delight to have Francesca as our guide - she explained some of the history of the parts of Venice we walked through as well as some of the cultural habits of locals. We enjoyed visiting the 5 bars which ranged from being the oldest in Venice to more modern... More

This is a great tour, Simone did a fantastic job. We got a tour of where the locals live, much different than the tourist areas. The food and wine were very tasty. Our group of 7 got along very well. And there was even a 3 minute gondola ride!

Our guide Giovanna was Pleasant, knowledgable and fun. Her English skills were excellent. We walked through the small streets, had a short gondola ride across the Grand Canal ( the one the locals use), sampled many delicious appetizers, drank several glasses of local wine and meet some new friends. Perfect evening! Thank you Giovanna!

Our guide Simona was absolutely wonderful. She was extremely knowledgeable and engaging. We wish she could have been our guide for every tour! The wine and food were fantastic! We went to places we would not have gone to on our own. Highly recommend this tour!

Our family (me, my 16 year old son and my 72 year old mother) took the sweets tour today with Francesca. I like food tours and try to take them whenever possible, but this was a different twist and such an incredible value. We sampled and learned about all kinds of pastries and coffee while being given lessons in the... More

If in Venice, pre book a wine and food tour with these guys. Claire the guide was informative and fun to be around. She took us to some amazing back street places to sample wine and food. The tour lasts just over 2.5hrs but is worth every penny.. dont miss it!!

Staying in San Polo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
