After your stroll among the maze of tiny streets or, as locals call them - calli, of the Jewish Quarter, immerse into a very characteristic trait of the Venetian every day "dolce vita" culture - the bàcaro experience. The bàcaro are typical tiny taverns or wine bars, usually with humble rustic furniture and just a few seats or none at all. Since ancient times, Venetians used to relax with a glass of wine - the so-called Ombra de vin - and finger foods at the end of the working day. Yet, this tradition overcame time and is one of the best ways to completely experience the local delectable Venetian food, which is authentic and exquisite. But also you get a convivial moment with locals and feel the very essence of the city, escaping the tourist crowds. In these very informal places, grab a Spritz, a typical Venetian cocktail prepared with Prosecco, Aperol (or Campari) e sparkling water, or a glass of local wine and a plate of cicchetti - small savory snacks or appetizers. These delicious bites embrace a large variety of receipts and types. They could be one-bite meatballs, sandwiches, olives, fish-based or vegetable snacks, and many more. Among the most popular that can't be missing during your bàcaro tour are sarde in saor - marinated sardine fillets - and baccala mantecato - creamed codfish on toasted bread. However, each bar offers multiple types you can choose from. Usually, Venetians hop from one bàcaro to another, so the best experience this local itinerant pre-dinner ritual, do the same, rather than just staying in one bar all the time. The prices are affordable as a piece of cicchetti ranges from 1 euro to 3 euro, and a glass of wine or cocktail is also around 2-3 euro. Whatever type of cicchetti you choose, you can be sure they are all made of local products and respect the traditional Venetian cuisine. Cannareggio district is known to be home to some of the most famous bàcari. So stroll around, get a drink or more than one and a plate of appetizers, delight yourself, and immerse into the vigorous and colorful Venetian atmosphere. You can start with one of the most popular around Cannareggio - Ciccheteria venexiana da Luca e Fred, which is also very close to the Jewish Ghetto.
