Experience a proper Venetian aperitivo!

A genuine Venetian, at a certain time in the late afternoon, just after work, goes “a bacari” and invites those around him using the words “’more, ‘ndemo a bacari?”. Not everyday, but often. And you will do the same.

But what does it mean “’ndemo a bacari”? What will you do exactly?

You will walk with your guide, who will illustrate the most important culinary traditions in Venice and, most importantly, you will stop on the way in some selected “bacari”, our typical small “taverns”, where you can taste our “cicchetti”, a sort of tapas (meatballs, boiled eggs with anchovies, fried fish, boiled octopus, sweet and sour sardines, creamy salt cod and many more).

Together with cicchetti you can’t miss a glass of wine, which is called “ombra”. One “ombra” was in the past a specific quantity of wine; the Italian word “ombra” means “shadow” and of course it has its own story: we do not want to waste the surprise of the guide’s narration by telling it ourselves…

Instead of an “ombra” (or, why not? Just after it), you can also taste the Spritz, the famous Venetian aperitif, which, now popular all over Italy, was born here!”
