Elizabetta was the best host we could have imagined and made sure everyone had a great time whilst learning a little bit about Venice! The food and wine was amazing, so much so that we have book into a chicchetti restaurant in London in a few weeks time to try and recapture a great evening!

Had a lovely time on this tour. Learned some fun facts and ate delicious foods that are traditional of Venice. The wines were great as well. I had a lot of fun with the group and enjoyed the tasting tour a great deal. The guide was a native Venetian so she had authentic information to provide. The cafes/restaurants Elizabetta took...

Did the evening tour on the day of our arrival in Italy. Earlier had atrocious overpriced lunch in nameless tourist trap that line the little streets near our hotel packed with people streaming to and from San Marco's. What a wonderful introduction to the true Venice! One where you are treated like a local just a few streets away from... More

This was a great food and wine tour that didn't actually ally make you feel like a tourist. Claire our tour guide took us off the main streets and into the locals area where we were able to taste tradition Venetian snacks and wine. She was great at explaining things to us along the way about heaps of different things... More

It was an excellent experience, the guide was great. We went to a part of Venice I had never been to, there are usually more locals than tourist. The wine and the food was amazing, you can also buy bottles and take with you.

We did a wine & cicchetti (tapas) lunchtime tour with Francesca with our friends and a few others and had a delightful time! Tour included a bit of history of the area, a tour of the Rialto market and five different places where we sampled the local wines and foods. What a variety of food and plenty of it--a great...

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.
