An amazing experience and way to see Venice through the different tastes of Italy. Simona was an incredible host and showed us some parts of Venice we would have never discovered.

I am thrilled to report this was the best tour I took in Italy! Giovanna was an amazing guide and taught our group a lot about navigating the back streets of Venice, locating great local bars for wine and snacks and mingling with other travelers seeking a different kind of cultural experience. It was excellent! Do it your first night... More

This was a fantastic tour which I would highly recommend to everyone who visits Venice. Our guide Franscesca was highly knowledgeable and very friendly. My husband and I were very impressed and we will re-visit the bars we were taken to on the tour again.

We booked this tour and didn't know what to really expect, but it was truly brillant (even in the rain). Francesca and her colleague were just so lovely, friendly and very knowledgeable tour guides to have. We had a fantastic time tasting yummy treats and coffee around the city as well as learning some history of the city. Well recommended

We gathered in a square in Venice and our lovely guide Simone took us on a well organised pub crawl around local bars. Simone was great and she explained quirky historical facts about Venice and the various wine and nibbles. Good fun and well worth doing although we were all slightly inebriated at the end of the evening!

Staying in Cannaregio

Neighbourhood Profile
Cannaregio
Cannaregio is the second largest sestiere (district) with its busy Santa Lucia train station. Many transplanted Venetians commute from the outlying areas, “terra firma” to the locals, which is shorthand for any place that is not Venice. Two Grand Canal bridges serve Cannaregio, the newest (Constitution, 2008) still a local hotbed of controversy. Ponte degli Scalzi is a busy link to the train station. Nearby shops on the Lista di Spagna offer specialties like pastries and coffee that lure Venetians with a down-to-earth attitude. The Ghetto, where the Jewish population was segregated in Cannaregio, has five historic synagogues with an active Jewish community. The Fondamente Nove bustles with foot traffic to the Rialto and San Marco while vaporettos (water taxis) head to Murano and other islands. Side streets lead into quiet picturesque neighbourhoods and palaces like Ca' d'Oro rise directly out of the water.
