Day 2:Cicchetti of Venice Tour

Description

Fuel your passion for Venice as you tour round the city whilst sampling the delicious cicchettii dishes at some traditional Bacari wine bars. Accompanied by a local guide, you can experience the real Venice as you visit places frequented by locals to partake of food and wine, Italian-style!


Veraniego

Cicchettii are small tapas-style dishes and are ideal teamed with some Italian wine, or as the locals call it, ombra. The range of dishes usually consists of the essential olives with various cheeses, and seafood, meat and vegetables presented on crostini (small toasted bread) or polenta. With the chance to learn about the history along the way, this is one Venice tour no food lover can miss!


Head off the beaten track to the narrow streets that are dotted with traditional taverns and eateries. There is nothing quite as sociable as eating and drinking together to gain a genuine feel for a destination. Amidst the chink of glasses, the murmur of Italian voices and the buzz of music and laughter, you discover an unforgettable side to Venice that many visitors miss.


A great way to start your time in Venice, this Cicchettii of Venice tour helps you loose any sense of trepidation at entering traditional cafes and endows you with a sense of familiarity for the city’s winding streets and canals. This is a wonderful opportunity to gain an insight into the Venetian lifestyle and culture of wining and dining in a relaxed and fun way.

Day 3:The Magic Art of Glassblowing

A great experience that will bring you to know the art of manufacture and glassblowing. In front of you a glass craftsman master will create a unique item while he is showing and explaining the ancient technique phases of the production. You will discover this ancient art came from Romans who, on the run from the barbarians, established the city of Venice.


You can feel the warmth, the smells and the sounds of the furnace and you will see the clever hands of the artisan mould the glass in front of your eyes and then, like magic, it will be transformed into an unrepeatable object, thanks to the work of a millennial artisan culture that has been handed down from one generation to the next. The glassblowing art is recognized in all the world as a synonym of beauty.


Venetians moulded many things with glass that were used daily, like cups, glasses, dishes, mirrors and lamps. This art of moulding the glass in all these shapes, was one of the most safeguarded secrets in the Venetian Republic.


You will relive this experience in Saint Mark's Square in an old Glass Factory Showroom and you will have the possibility to know and see the principal objects that are made with glass.


At the end of your experience we will give each couple or family a little glass gift, as a souvenir of your visit.
