Another way to discover Venice is savoring its cuisine. Maybe you prefer a quick break and not stop in a restaurant for a long time, but for sure you will find a lot of delicacies, that will make you fall in love!
Taste the typical Venetian “cicchetti” or the “tramezzini”, small snacks or side dishes, typically served in traditional “bàcari” (cicchetti bars or osterie). Common cicchetti include tiny sandwiches, olives or other vegetables, halved hard boiled eggs, small servings of a combination of one or more of seafood, meat and vegetable ingredients laid on top of a slice of bread, instead tramezzini consist in handmade sandwiches with vegetables, meat or fish.
Normally Venetians accompany cicchetti or tramezzini with a glas of wine or a spriz, the classic Venetian aperitif, a mix of white wine, Aperol (sweeter) or Bitter Campari and Select (bitterer) and a squirt of seltz or Sparkling mineral water.
