'Venetian Savors'

Venetian Savors: Traditional Venice Happy Hour Tour

This tour gave us the opportunity to experience the happy hour in Venise. We could taste local wine/food and also learn about the local customs and habit of the Venetians. It was very relaxing after two long days visiting the city.
