Venetians think that a Bacaro tour is much more than eating and drinking, is actually a kind of ritual. The bacari are more than simple wine-bars, they are institutions where locals go to socialize, relax and have fun.
You will learn (and taste) what 'Cicchetti' are (and why you don't have to call it tapas !) and why we call 'ombra' a glass of wine.
The tastiness of Cicchetti will delight your palate, the variety of wines will tickle your soul and the local atmosphere will win you over.
Your Bacaro tour will be followed by a farewell dinner at a local osteria (3 courses with wine & water)
