Peccati Di Gola, The Flavors of Venice: A Walking Tour With Cuisine Workshop + Coffee

€59

Morning visit: Rialto Market and cuisine workshop in a real Venetian private home

An early morning visit to Rialto is a perfect way to begin your day and discover Venice from its origins. The town’s main market, famous for its bridge (Ponte di Rialto), was transferred here at the end of the eleventh century.

Tour Gallery

Trading of all kinds took place. The names of the local lanes and market-squares like Erberia (fruit and vegetable market), Pescaria (fish), Naranzeria (oranges) and Speziali (spices) are still recorded. Our tour is a “round trip” into the culinary identity of Venice, from the fresh market to the table, through the secrets of the traditional cuisine. Behind the colours of seafood, vegetables, meat and spices many stories are to be discovered. Conviviality starts from Rialto’s stalls, as we begin to choose accurately the products with our senses, depending on our Venetian menu (fish, meat or vegetarian). After the purchase, the door of a Venetian dwelling will be opened and a professional cook from the renowned “Peccati di gola” school will receive us for a Venetian cuisine workshop, followed by an aperitif and a lunch. After a good lunch, “fare due passi” (a “short walk”) is an Italian must – maybe along with a good espresso?… Venice gave the birth to the tradition of coffee in Italy since the end of XVII. Reloaded by the best Italian espresso, the last part walking tour will be dedicated to the discovery of unusual and hidden corners of Cannaregio Sestiere area through calles (lanes), campi (squares) and churches – out of the classic routes.
