Venice Food & Wine Tour

Private gastronomic discovery tour of Venice & the Venetian lagoon


Overview of Venice Food & Wine Tour

Venice is one of the most unique places on earth. It is a breathtaking open-air museum full of exquisite beauty. With its misty lagoon and gothic palaces seemingly floating on water, Venice has an absolute fairy tale quality that, even for well-traveled visitors, never ceases to impress. Venice’s culinary history is fascinating, as well. Between the 9th and 15th centuries, Venice was the most important port in Europe and the key to the spice routes from the east. Many of the spices so popular in Italian cooking (like black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, etc.) first entered Italy through Venice’s waterways via trade. Italian staples such as coffee also arrived in Venice first, never before seen in Italy!

For centuries, Venice was home to Arab traders, Spanish sailors, Indian spice merchants, and Jewish tradesmen. In the late 19th century, Venice was the last hub in Western Europe to Istanbul on the mythical Orient Express, the train ride that inspired authors such as Agatha Christie and Graham Greene. Venice truly is an unforgettable and unique destination, with countless treasures to discover.

The route has been designed specifically for the savvy traveler looking for a cultural food and wine vacation with a difference. This luxurious private tour of Venice will introduce you to the best gastronomy and wine the city has to offer. Enrica will teach you how to prepare local Venetian specialties in your Private Cooking Class in a beautiful palazzo. You will explore the markets of Venice, including the picturesque Rialto market on the Grand Canal. And after a full day’s sightseeing in Venice, which can feel like sensory overload, there is nothing better than getting cozy in a typical Venetian wine bar (called a “bacaro”) and tasting some of the local specialties. Come and explore Venice with Cellar Tours!
