Overview
Enjoy a walking tour of the city to discover its treasures nestled amid charming squares, bridges and narrow streets and then hop aboard a classic Venetian gondola boat. After exploring the Grand Canal and the smaller canals around the neighborhood of Fenice, soak up the charms of the romantic city while wandering through picturesque cobblestone alleyways and squares. Your knowledgeable guide will point out all the highlights of Venice from the area between Piazza San Marco to Rialto Bridge.
Highlights
  • Guided walking tour of Venice with boat ride
  • Customizable itinerary determined by a guide
  • Tick off blockbuster sites: Teatro la Fenice, Rialto Bridge, Scala del Bovolo
  • See two sides of the city: on foot and by boat 
What to Expect
Meet your guide at St Mark’s Square, where you’ll catch a glimpse of its world-famous basilica. Prepare for the city’s history to come alive as you learn about Venice’s past as a maritime superpower and legendary home to phenomenal Renaissance artists. Navigating the cobbled backstreets, you’ll come face-to-face with classic landmarks like the 18th-century opera house of Teatro la Fenice, Venice’s oldest bridge, and an under-the-radar antique staircase named after a snail for its unique spiral shape. You’ll get the perfect overview of the city’s must-see sites while also venturing off-the-beaten-path. End the tour with a one-of-a-kind view of the city from a spectacular vantage point: by boat. You’ll step into an iconic gondola and float down Venice’s turquoise waterways, admiring the majestic palaces that line the Grand Canal.

Address in email notification was incorrect, causing us to miss the guided tour, so we only took the gondola ride which was good.
