GOURMET SHOPPING TOUR
“Gourmet shopping tour” helps you detect and take home some local food specialties, even though you are not familiar with them.
Our food expert will walk you around the Rialto food market and introduce you to the world of sustainable Venetian produce.
Together with your guide, discover the variety of vegetables and fruit produce available at that time of the year.
In fall, fragrant Porcini mushrooms are available in town, but you can purchase the dried ones whenever.
The same for dehydrated Risotti containing all the ingredients you need for a hearty local first course.
Needless to say that the colorful fish stalls will catch your eyes and your nose!
It is hard to tell for your guide which type of fish you might fly home, but the shop opposite the 1907 pavilions displays vacuum-packed sardines, canned black squid ink, and packed marinated mackerel fillets ready to eat or slip into your suitcase.
Take advantage of your food guide expertise: some mouth-watering products are packaged in olive oil or pickled.
At home, they will remind you of the Venetian mood, the charming atmosphere of your exciting trip.
After the outdoor market, your guide walks you to the nearby best grocery store selling regional wines, which boast a national record in the volume of bottles produced in the whole country.
The itinerary will end with a lovely wine aperitif paired with appetizers in a traditional osteria.
