Cannaregio Aperitivo Tour in Venice

Join the locals for traditional Aperitivo time in Venice! This local ritual encourages you to nosh on small bites and sip drinks just before dinner. Experience this unique aspect of daily Venetian life in the hip and historic Cannaregio district.

In the early evening, you’ll tour the Cannaregio district, once the home of Venice’s 16th-century Jewish Ghetto. Famed for its vintage shopping and tasty Cicchetti (similar to appetizers or tapas) and cocktails, you’ll find several spots for your pre-dinner snack. As the sun sets, immerse yourself in the culture and enjoy a classic drink, various Italian delicacies, and shared stories with your guide.

After your first beverage, you’ll begin your walking tour and explore the best local spots in this trendy and lively neighborhood. Hop from one bar to another, visiting off-the-beaten-path sites that many visitors miss. As you sip and chat, fill your belly with traditional bites, such as bacala mantecato (creamed cod), sarde in saor (sardines in tangy onion marinade), or soppressa (soft salami).
