Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet up with your guide and small group on the steps of the Santa Lucia train station entrance in central Venice. 

    Embark on your coffee and dessert culinary tour of the city, starting in the heart of the old Jewish ghetto. Learn about the important role this 500-year-old neighborhood has played in Venice's history as you bite into a traditional Kosher pastry. Then, it's time to start learning how to do Italian coffee the right way; your next stop is a family-owned coffee roastery and café. Learn how the locals take their coffee in this historic torrefazione (coffee shop). 

    Sufficiently caffeinated, take an energetic stroll through Cannaregio, stopping at a family bakery famous for torrone and other traditional Venetian desserts. Take a pause here to listen to your guide's commentary on Venetian culinary history while you taste some of the bakery's products. 

    Continue towards Castello, Venice's largest island and home to the Naval Dockyard. Stop at another family bakery famous for seasonal desserts: panettone at Christmas, colomba at Easter and other samples depending on the time of year. Next stop is another bakery for the world-renowned tiramisu; learn about the background of this popular dessert as you dig in. 

    Last stop, just near your ending point at the Rialto Bridge, is a gourmet chocolate atelier, where you'll learn how the chocolates are made and get one last tasting as a parting gift.

    We went on the sweet tour with Sabrina as our tour guide. It was a mixture of sweet treats and a tour of the city, including it's varied history. We would really recommend this tour and any other with Sabrina.
