Our guide to Private Rialto Market & Secret Venice Tour with Cicchetti & Wine
Explore the secret corners and hidden itineraries of Venice. Relax like a true Venetian and sip local wine accompanied by the typical cicchetti sandwiches (Venetian tapas). Leave the hordes of tourists behind and discover a city mostly known only by the locals.
Your Hidden Venice Tour will guide you through a fascinating labyrinth of narrow alleyways punctuated by delicate bridges and enchanting canals. Learn about the history of Venice as one of the most rich and flourishing markets of the western world. Discover one of the most beautiful campielli (little square) where there used to be many workshops making oars for the gondolas. Take a stroll in Cannaregio district and see the 7th century Santi Apostoli church which was extensively restored in Renaissance times. Cross the Grand Canal on a typical gondola widely used by the locals as a means of transport.
Explore the lively and colourful food market area of the Rialto and be entertained by the legend of hunchback of San Giacomo. Stop by a typical "bacaro" - a local wine bar where you will taste "cicchetti" (Venetian tapas) accompanied by a glass of wine. Explore the hidden San Polo district. This is where (at the time of La Serenissima, during Renaissance times) East and West met and where spices, precious fabrics, silk and many other goods were traded by merchants from around the globe. Your Hidden Venice Walking Tour will pass by the old locandas, where the merchants would sojourn and encounter the famous Venetian courtesans in the old red light district of Casteletto, that is home to the notorious Ponte delle Tette. During this walk, you'll see some of the oldest houses in Venice and learn about how life used to be in Venice and how life is today for the modern day Venetians.
Last but not least, you’ll visit one of the most beautiful Campi (squares) of Venice - San Polo. Like a grand arena (where there used to be bull fights!), with its elegant palaces, it is a complete contrast to the narrow streets, dark passageways, delicate bridges and tiny courtyards of the off-the-beaten-path Venice. Your Rialto market & cicchetti Hidden Venice Tour will conclude by one of the major landmarks: the Rialto Bridge.
