Venice bacaro tour

Venice bacaro tour

Everyone knows that there are no cars in Venice, but who knows what a “bacaro” is?

The fact that Venetians have to walk to get anywhere, has transformed these ancient places of refreshment (halfway between a wine bar and a small tavern) into an original social habit: the bacaro tour.

Just a table or two, these little Venetian institutions are not places to sit for a meal, but they are the best way to enjoy a “cicchetto” (small tastings, similar to Spanish tapas) accompanied by an “ombra” (little glass of red or white wine) in the company of old or new friends, strictly standing!

It is a kind of ritual, a social tradition renewed every day in the late afternoon. It may seem like a simple aperitif, but in reality it is a way to socialize, and you often go to so many “bacari” that you no longer need to have dinner then!
