Venice boats and best cicchetti in Venice
This tour is dedicated to the preservation of the traditional Venetian water culture and the Venetian style of rowing.
On the traditional Venice boats, the classic gondolas created in Venice and famous all over the world, the rower is standing up, facing forward and holding the boat oar, as required by the Venetian style of rowing, made iconic by the gondoliers.
Row like a Venetian! Choose an unforgettable experience for your tour in Venice… We will teach you how to row on traditional Venice boats. Try it yourself! Explore the Venetian waterways and start rowing to reach the canals. Once you have become comfortable behind a Venetian oar, why not use it to go somewhere?
And what better destination than a local bacaro… or two? There is nothing more enjoyable while learning the art of Venetian rowing on Venice boats than combining it with an aperitif and tasting the best cicchetti in Venice with Spritz.
The bacari tour will take us in the districts of Venice to taste the best cicchetti in Venice paired with wines in the bacari, the traditional osteria of Venice. It is the perfect introduction to the Venetian food and the wine culture of the city without committing to a whole meal.
Being accompanied on a bacari tour means savouring the traditional Venetian cuisine such as octopus, fluffy white baccala mantecato (cooked codfish whipped with olive oil) on polenta, a savoury hot meatball or tuna croquet, or a speck, robiola and truffle crouton… When could you otherwise taste the best cicchetti in Venice, if not on a bacari tour?
The Venice boats and best cicchetti in Venice experience includes learning the traditional technique of Venetian rowing in the Venetian canals of Cannaregio, and then going out into the lagoon as the sun begins to set. We will then return for a tour in two of the best bacari that are located along the lively Misericordia canal, where your “rowing reward” will be to taste a variety of recipes of the best cicchetti in Venice and regional wines or other drinks you prefer.
