This is a must do! Elisabetta was our guide and she was fantastic. Getting to experience local food and local restaurants was amazing. The food and wine were great and just off the beaten path which gets you away from the crowds. We would recommend this to anyone traveling in Venice.

Arrived from Florida but stayed up to do the walking tour with wine and food. Our guide Simona was an absolute joy , learned so much about Venetian culture food and wine.

This was a wonderful tour. Elizabeth was entertaining and very knowledgeable. We really loved the small "pubs" and the wine and different types of cicchetti to taste. Loved the way the Italians spend their evenings.

It was a good night we met 6 other people on the tour and we had such great fun and we visited small bars that we wouldn't noticed on our own and we tasted food that we would not have ordered some of the food was good and some not so good but that was just personal choice

A must to achieve an authentic and local experience away from the tourists. Not only educational and delish, but also a great time!

Great half day trip! Host was so knowledge and friendly! I would recommend this as a first day activity. You will find lots of good drinking and eating places and save yourself a fortune in doing so! So worth the money!

We had a informative and engaging experience led by Iole. We met some nice couples and drank local wines and tried a selection cicchetti (similar to tapas). We even went back to one... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood. 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.
