Rialto food market tour - Tour 10

Tour description:


Local people in Venice enjoy shopping at the Rialto market, where they buy fresh products such as fruit and vegetables, fish and seafood. Fish is a staple in the local diet, with a wide range of options including cod, sardines, sea-bass, bream, flounder, and monkfish. Locals prepare it at home, but for special occasions, they prefer to eat it at restaurants or simpler places called "bacari", taverns, or wine bars. The food market offers a variety of Venetian specialties, snacks and ‘cicchetti’ such as hard-boiled eggs topped with herring fillets, vinegar marinated anchovies, grilled baby squids, and small bread rolls filled with local salami. Venetians also enjoy fried meatballs, creamed codfish, and sardines in an onion and vinegar sauce. These ‘cicchetti’ are often accompanied by a small glass of wine called "ombra". But, the ideal wine for this tasting is Prosecco, a light sparkling wine. Your guide will recommend some "bacari", where you can taste some typical Venetian dishes, such as pastas, risottos, fried, and roasts.


The visit includes:
A visit to the fish market, which is open in the mornings from Tuesday to Saturday.
Tastings at the bacari.
Costs:
The guided tour costs 160,00 Euro for small parties and families up to 8 people.
