About
Packed to the rafters with sights, Venice is a city where time passes fast. Don't waste a second getting lost amid bridges and crowds and instead explore with a guide to discover the highlights and history in minimal time. See the Rialto Bridge and gems, such as the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, where many Venetian doges were laid to rest. Choose from a 15-person small-group tour or a private option.

Find photo-worthy landmarks, such as the Rialto Bridge ,without getting lost

What to expect
Choose a tour time that suits your schedule when you book. Then, meet your guide (and small group if you didn't select a private tour) in the center of Venice. With tales of maritime Venice ringing in your ears, stroll around the cobbles, exploring neighborhoods, such as Cannaregio and the sight-laden enclaves of San Marco and Rialto. Cross the Rialto Bridge and then amble past Marco Polo’s House, where the intrepid explorer is said to have been born. Hear tales of Titian, the painter who adopted the city as his own and see the Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, where he was laid to rest. Continue through Campo San Bartolomeo to see the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, where many of the city’s doges lay buried. Then pause by Scuola Grande di San Rocco, a palace (palazzo) rich with Tintoretto art. Your tour ends at St. Mark’s Square.

Great experience!
Denise, our native Venetian tour guide, was knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the history and layout of Venice. We found her insights useful for the remainder of our visit! Highly recommend!

Great introductory tour
Great guide. Could not have covered more ground/sights and history. Be prepared to walk for two and a half hours (plus getting to the reunion point and back).

Oct 2020
The guide was a delight. She taught us how to smile with a mask. Her quick witted sense of humour made the tour very entertaining. She states at the beginning of the tour that she will not be taking us to the usual historical places, butrather will take us round the back routes and show us less known spots.

Sep 2020
I had an truly excellent guide named Denise, (her English name). She lives in Venice and she gave us a very memorable walking tour with lots of information explained in a fun and interesting manner. She kept our attention for the whole tour. Would recommend this experience to everyone wanting to get a flavour of the real Venice as well as gaining valuable historical facts. Well done Denise you were so good.
