About
Two great classics of Venice combined in a unique, enchanting experience: a walking tour to discover some of the lesser-known corners of the city and a poetical gondola ride along the Grand Canal and some minor canals. During the walking part of the tour, admire the facades of La Fenice Theatre, the elegant spiral staircase of Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo and the Rialto area, the oldest part of Venice. Then, on the gondola ride, let the gondolier accompany you through the calm lulling waters, while admiring the city from a different perspective. Through this tour you’ll perceive the magical part that lies in some unusual areas of Venice!

Brilliant way to have affordable gondola ride and see hidden gems of Venice
Jan. 2020 • Couples
Took a Gondola ride with 4 others along the back waterways of Venice which was magical. Then had a guided tour to places tourists don’t visit and learnt so much about the city. Guide was excellent.
