Small Group Sweet Taste of Venice with Dessert Samples and Coffee
From USD 59.89
Overview
Immerse yourself in the Italian caffè culture during this small-group culinary tour. Spend 3 hours strolling through the neighborhoods of Castello and Cannaregio, listening to your guide's thoughtful commentary on Venice's gastronomic traditions. Taste some of the bold coffee that Italians like to linger over and a few of the city's best 'pasticcerie', or desserts. This small-group tour is limited to 12 people or fewer to ensure an intimate atmosphere and personalized attention from your guide. All tastings are included.
What to Expect
Meet up with your guide and small group on the steps of the Santa Lucia train station entrance in central Venice. 

Embark on your 3-hour coffee and dessert culinary tour of the city, starting in the heart of the old Jewish ghetto. Learn about the important role this 500-year-old neighborhood has played in Venice's history as you bite into a traditional Kosher pastry. Then, it's time to start learning how to do Italian coffee the right way; your next stop is a family-owned coffee roastery and café. Learn how the locals take their coffee in this historic torrefazione (coffee shop). 

Sufficiently caffeinated, take an energetic stroll through Cannaregio, stopping at a family bakery famous for torrone and other traditional Venetian desserts. Take a pause here to listen to your guide's commentary on Venetian culinary history while you taste some of the bakery's products. 

Continue towards Castello, Venice's largest island and home to the Naval Dockyard. Stop at another family bakery famous for seasonal desserts: panettone at Christmas, colomba at Easter and other samples depending on the time of year. Next stop is another bakery for the world-renowned tiramisu; learn about the background of this popular dessert as you dig in. 

Last stop, just near your ending point at the Rialto Bridge, is a gourmet chocolate atelier, where you'll learn how the chocolates are made and get one last tasting as a parting gift.
