The Cicchetti Crawl

Now here’s a nice Venetian tradition: cicchetti, Venice’s answer to tapas. These tasty treats, each 2-3 bites and made with today’s fresh ingredients, are on offer at bars across the city. You have one or two, with a small glass of wine, chat with locals and other travellers for 10 minutes, and then move on to the next bar. An excellent social event!

One of my favorites (which I ate before remembering to pull out my camera) is the deep fried Zuccini flower, stuffed with an anchovie. Very fresh, very tasty.
