We spent a morning with Francesca, walking around the city, hearing interesting stories and eating delicious food - we stopped at a number of bakeries, ate chocolate, drank coffee and enjoyed the refreshing Aperol Spritz- white wine with fruit spritzer - fabulous! Francesca was engaging and informative and we enjoyed her stories very much! Couldn't have chosen a better guide!... More

Clare was fantastic and really made the wine tour in Venice fun! You could tell the wine bars and their owners respected her and helped to provide for an exciting tour.

I would suggest doing the Wine and Cicchetti tour early in your trip as we had been in Venice for four days and learnt so many interesting things in that one tour which would have been good to know. We had a fabulous night and our tour guide Giovanna was wonderful.

This trip was fabulous. We had an excellent guide, Beatrice, who was so informative, incredibly friendly and bursting with enthusiasm for everything Venetian. She took us off the beaten track and we saw sights we would never have found ourselves. The tour went through the Jewish area, we visited the remaining kosher bakery, Castillo , where we saw the most... More

We did this wonderful "tour" on our last full day in Venice, and I would highly recommend it to anyone spending time in the city! Our tour guide, Claire, was incredibly knowledgeable and very enthusiastic, sharing interesting information on the floating city as she guided us to five charming restaurants/osterias where we sampled varying wines and cicchetti.

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.
