My teenage daughter and I went on the coffee and desserts tour in Venice in December 2016. It was truly fantastic. Francesca is passionate and very knowledgeable about Venice, history and food! She took us to many different local haunts and we sampled some delicious local delights - including coffee and spritz. We learnt that this was the last tour... More

The tours offered are wonderfully decadent experiences that take you off the tourist track to discover some of the best tastes, experiences and views Venice has to offer. I loved the Cicchetti & Wine Tour of Venice, which I took a few years ago. Returning to Venice, I grabbed the opportunity to take The Sweet Taste of Venice Tour and... More

Hugely enjoyable and informative three hour walking tour that took us to places and experiences we would probably not have discovered on our own. Francesca is delightful guide (we were just two on the tour, parent and teen) and introduced us to much more than coffee and cakes (which were quite delicious). It was a highlight of our stay in...

I had looked forward to this walking tour for over a year, with high expectations. While the guide was good, the info excellent, and the experience well worth it as wonderful way for a new visitor to be oriented to Venice, here's what dampened the experience: there were so many signed up at our reserved time that group was split...

My husband and I were very fortunate to be the only people on this tour today with the wonderful Francesca, and enjoyed it immensely. While it was primarily about the pastry and coffee, it was filled with information about the areas we were walking in, both past and present. Francesca was extremely knowledgeable about the history and traditions of the... More

Fantastic small group wine tour in Venice on our first night. Had ciccetti (small bites) and wine at five out of the way locations. Saw the other side of Venice away from the crowds at St Marks. The small group made it even better. Wine and food was great and different from what we had been used to. Unfortunately we... More

We were recommended this tour through a friend of mine. It was a perfect way to spend the first night in Venice. Our local guide, Simone, was fun, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and welcoming. Great time!

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!

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.
