How do you eat like a local in Venice?

Head to a local Bacari, which is the equivalent of a wine bar. Order yourself a glass of your favourite, my choice is always an Aperol Spritz to start. Then pick a selection of Cicchetti. Known as small bites, these are little morsels that will change at every venue you visit.

Think:

Tuna tartare on crostini

Fresh & cooked pieces of seafood

Cured meats

Polenta croutons
