What Will You Do

Traditional pastry shop in Castello

We will store some energy to face our discovery walk tour around Venice in a traditional pastry shop serving sweet treats to Venetians since 1879. Dramatically beautiful neighbourhood close to San Giovanni & Paolo church.

Local bakery in San Marco

We will continue our walk in the Venetian tradition with a “zaeto”, a typical cornmeal and sultanas biscuit, in a local bakery in the San Marco district.

Historical Cafè in St. Mark's square

We will indulge by stopping at the bar counter of one of the historical cafés in Saint Mark’s square, perhaps the one preferred by opera composer Richard Wagner. Surrounded by Baroque mirrors and politically incorrect antique Moor’s chandeliers, we will sip our espresso. We might even ask for a “corretto” (espresso coffee with grappa liqueur).

Ice Cream & Glamour

We will cross the Canal Grande using a Gondola ferry, and we will reach the Zattere in the arty Dorsoduro district. There, we will enjoy a delicious scoop of ice cream in a “gelateria” which was a favourite of Peggy Guggenheim’s, and more recently Angelina Jolie’s.

Family-owned bakery in Dorsoduro

Feel like true venetian eating the typical biscuit from the island of Burano. We will taste the original recipe in a local family-owned bakery active since 1956.

Pastry shop in Santa Croce

Moving towards the Santa Croce district we will stop at a bakery where every Venetian has been at least once in a lifetime. In this famous shop the offer is so wide it can mesmerize you! Probably a good choice would be a cup of tiramisu, the most famous Italian dessert.

A pastry shop active since 1742 in San Polo

Zabaione is the most typical pastry filling in Venice, lightly alcoholic due to the Marsala liqueur and extremely tasty. We will try it in a pastry shop which has been a corner bakery since 1742, and whose reputation for “krapfen” (cream puffs), strudels and Venetian donuts has survived many “acqua alta” (high tides).

Kosher bakery at Jewish Ghetto in Cannaregio

Entering the Cannaregio district and the oldest Jewish ghetto in the world, we cannot miss to taste some pastry in a traditional kosher bakery. Bite after bite we will discover and understand more the multi-cultural richness of the cities and its historical communities.
