Exquisite Tastes of Venice Tour
After a leisurely breakfast in the hotel, take a guided walking tour of Venice’s winding canals and inviting neighborhoods. Of course we’ll hit the infamous fish and produce markets, but also must-sees like St. Mark’s Square, the Basilicata, the Campanile, the Doges’ Palace, the Bridge of Sighs, the Grand Canal, the beautiful Rialto bridge and the infamous Jewish Ghetto.
After this beautiful walk, you’ll be ready for lunch! Hailed as “divine” and “outstanding”, Osteria La Zucca defines itself as innovative and modern, proposing only the freshest seasonal ingredients in every dish!
After lunch you’ll enjoy a free afternoon for strolling back to the hotel, shopping or just getting lost in the city’s splendor.
Dinner this evening will be a real treat! You’ll be dining in one of Venice’s most important and world-renowned restaurants, Harry’s Bar! Famous for creating not only the beloved Bellini but also beef carpaccio, and a special “club” sandwich, this restaurant is a classic MUST-SEE (and be seen in) location! Of course we’ll start with a round of Bellinis (Fresh white peach nectar with Prosecco), and take it from there…
After a leisurely breakfast in the hotel, you’ll transfer by private boat to the island of glass, Murano. You’ll enjoy an up-close glass blowing demonstration by a Venetian glass master and his apprentice, as well as plenty of time for admiring, and shopping.
Lunch will be at Ai Vetrai. One of Murano’s most endearing restaurants, this is where the locals go! You’ll dine on simple dishes of amazing seafood, sublime pastas and the region’s best local wines.
After lunch you’ll transfer by private boat to Osteria da Fiore, one of Venice’s most lauded restaurants for a hands-on cooking class by the chef herself, Mara Martin. The class will focus on her modern specialties including fish, risotto and local desserts. The class will be followed by dinner of the delicious dishes you’ve prepared and local wine pairings.
Check out and early morning return by private group water taxi to Venice Marco Polo Airport VCE for flights to the USA.
