The traditional Venetian aperitif, practiced during the week as well as on weekends, is an important social moment of relaxation. Enjoy a glass of Spritz, Prosecco, or local wine, accompanied by the very Venetian cicchetti (the equivalent of Spanish tapas). This is the best way to prepare for dinner and let the day wind down!

The Venetian bacari – the traditional inns – are generally small spaces where the delicious scents of Venetian cuisine blend with those of wines and aperitifs.

Your tour takes you to experience three taverns of Venice in the heart of the historical city center, with a glass of wine and a taste of the Venetian equivalent to the Spanish tapas, the cicchetti.
