Full description
Kickoff the evening with a visit to a local favorite bacaro, the place to be for a real good aperitivo. It’s a small and rustic place, where you can enjoy a glass of prosecco and a bite alongside the canal. Sit on the wooden boat docked in front of the bacaro and enjoy the sunset from the water. A tiny and exclusive wine bar awaits with an excellent selection of more than 800 organic wines that are produced in a 100% natural way. Enjoy a glass of Trebbiano white wine before biting into a mouth-watering ‘cicchetti’ that really lifts this place beyond the ordinary. Top off your evening with a visit to one of the oldest bacaros in town. Follow your local insider as you wander down a narrow street, before stepping foot inside this cozy bar. Blend in with the locals, as tourists hardly ever find this gem and get ready to taste some of the best red house wine and signature meatballs. Hang around for dinner if you're still feeling peckish. Take in the atmosphere and see where locals love to mingle and enjoy 'la dolce vita' as the golden hour strikes.

It was totally nice to stroll through the alleys and over the bridges of the evening Cannareggio with the very likeable Giulia and to learn a lot of interesting things about the residents. We stopped off in cozy little restaurants, enjoyed the variety of cicheti and tasted regional wine. A lively experience, highly recommended!

Great experience led by a local, we tried three bars that were off the beaten track that we would not have been to otherwise, highlight was definitely sitting a boat on the canal at the end of the night. It was also great to hear what it's like to be a true local, and they gave us some good recommendations for where to go for the rest of our stay. very informal experience, so not what you want if you're looking to try the best wines in Venice, but great for finding Venecian bars that aren't aimed at tourists, hearing some great local stories, and having a tasty snack along the way (especially the fried meatballs!)

Very nice young woman who led us through Venice for one evening. It was more than the specified 2 hours with very delicious wines and delicious dishes, the typical Venetian chicchetti. After the tour, Giulia even took us to the student area, where we still had drinks with her friends. We had a very good time and it was really fun. Super authentic impressions of the city! Giulia gave us some recommendations and tips for our stay and is still available for questions after the tour via WhatsApp. Gladly again!
