An introduction to the essential
Aperitivo of the Veneto

euro 60/person

New:  small group format!  Join other foodies on this fun look at local life. Group size is from 2 to 8 people.

Available:  Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 5:30pm.

Visiting the Veneto without trying a Spritz is like coming to Italy and skipping the food.  Discover the history behind Italy’s beloved aperitivo and its role in daily life today.  Enjoy the relaxing pace of Italy’s dolce vita, when the world seems to stop for the all-important hour of the aperitivo.  The aperitivo has a vital function in today’s hectic world- an hour or so before dinner to unwind and decompress with friends or co-workers before heading home or out for a meal.

Join us as we stroll through colourful main squares of Padova, stopping at two of our favorite places for a traditional Spritz paired with local finger food.   We will explore Piazza delle Erbe, Piazza dei Signori, Piazza della Frutta and Piazza Duomo.

“Lovely day in Padua”

Five of us took a one-day private walking tour from Mario and Rachel while we were on a cruise and docked in Venice. It has to be one of the best tours and days we have spend throughout many travels. We were picked up by our ship and driven to Padua, where we saw detailed and informative tours of the Basilica, the Scrovegni chapel, the city and its markets and the university…
