PRIVATE TOUR – From Rialto Market to a 100% Venetian cooking class

Live Venice like a Venetian! With this walking tour you will discover the most famous market in Venice: the Rialto Market! Among flavors, colors and people you will purchase some ingredients for a special private cooking class, during which you will taste some local wines, combined with 3 courses made by yourselves!
Meeting with a food and wine private guide and/or a sommelier in front of the Church of San Giacomo di Rialto. Visit to the famous Rialto Market, one of the oldest, located close to the homonymous Bridge, in the core of the historic center of Venice, stretching between Campo de la Pescaria and the beautiful Campo San Giacometo.

You will feel real “Venetian citizens” among colors, scents and flavors of fresh fish, fruit and vegetables. At the end of your shopping of the products chosen according to your tastes and their seasonality, you will take a characteristic “traghetto-gondola” (gondola-ferry) to cross the Grand Canal. Inside a historic Venetian building, plunged into a family atmosphere, you will cook a 3-course lunch (appetizer, main course and dessert), based on Venetian cuisine, accompanied by a guided wine tasting.

Finally you will taste what you will have just prepared during a pleasant and intimate lunch.
