Bacari and their cicchetti in Venice

Do you know what  “cicchetti” means? Its name comes from the Latin “ciccus”, which means “small quantity” and in fact the cicchetto is what is defined as an appetizer, perfect both mid-morning or as an aperitif  late in the afternoon. This idiom is above all used Venice. Thanks to this walking tour you will explore the most authentic areas of Venice and learn about its history, culture, legends and… “cicchetti” of course!

You will meet your private licensed sommelier for an unusual wine and cultural walking tour in Venice, through the typical Venetian “calli” in order to discover some unknown corners of that romantic city with its history, legends and monuments. Step by step you will stop at three different “bacari”, the typical Venetian wine bars for their atmosphere and style.

Come in and enjoy the local “happy hour”, well-known for its “cicchetti”, the Venetian style tapas, rich in taste and flavor, you will combine with different kinds of wines.
Your sommelier will tell you all the secrets about the red and white wines you will taste, and she will give you information about their history, their area of production, and their bouquets.
