tasting tour in traditional pastry shops and bakeries in Venice (example)
Chocolate bignè filled with hazelnut mousse

We boost energies to face our discovery walk around Venice in a traditional pastry shop serving sweet treats to Venetians since 1879 in a dramatically beatiful neighbourhood close to San Giovanni & Paolo church
(included in the price)
Espresso (corretto?)
We will indulge by stopping at the bar counter of an historical cafè in Saint Mark's square. For instance at the one preferred by the opera composer Richard Wagner, surrounded by baroque mirrors and politically incorrect antique moor's head chandeliers
Do you want to add some energy to your espresso? We will ask it a "corretto" ! (coffee corrected with "grappa" liquor)
(included in the price)

Zaeto venexiano
We will continue our walk in the Venetian tradition with a "zaeto", a cornmeal biscuit with sultanas in a local bakery close to San Marco
(not included: you have free choice to order it or not!)
Italian Ice Cream
We will cross the Canal Grande with a short gondola ride and we will reach the Zattere in the arty Dorsoduro district. We will enjoy delicious scoops of ice cream in a "gelateria"-shop which was a favourite of Peggy Guggenheim and, more recently, of Angelina Jolie
(not included: you have free choice to order it or not!)
Feel like true Venetian eating the typical biscuit from the island of Burano. We will taste the original recipe in a local family bakery active since 1956
(not included: you have free choice to order it or not!)
Moving towards the Santa Croce district, we cannot miss a bakery where every Venetian has been at least once in his life. In this famous place the offer is so wide it will mesmerize you! Probably a cup of Tiramisù, the most famous Italian dessert could be a good choice!
(not included: you have free choice to order it or not!)

Fiamma allo Zabaione

Zabaione is the most tyical pastry filling in Venice, lightly alcoholic due to the Marsala liquor and extremely tasty. We will try it in a pastry shop, which has been a corner bakery since 1742, whose reputatio of krapfen (cream puffs) strudel and venetian donuts has survived many "acqua alta" (high tides)
(not included: you have free choice to order it or not!)
Kosher sweets
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 you will discover and understand more about the multi-cultural richness of the city and of its historical communities
(not included: you have free choice to order it or not!)
