Private Venice Walking And Gondola Tour


The thrill of a ride on a Venetian gondola

A city almost entirely pedestrian, surrounded by water, where instead of busses, boats are the means of public transport... it seems like we are describing a place of fantasy, but this city exists and it’s in Italy: Venice!

We have designed this private tour especially for you to fully experience what the city has to offer: art and history, traditional food and the thrill of a ride on a real Venetian gondola.

Meet your local private guide directly in the city center and start your journey: you will be immediately awestruck by the majesty of the Basilica di San Marco, in the square also dedicated to the saint, in the frame of the Procuratie buildings. Admire the Doge's Palace, where the Venetian government once had its seat, and learn about its architecture, its features and its secrets. Soon thereafter you will be immersed in a maze of streets, alleys and bridges, under the friendly and expert guidance of your private tour guide.

You will admire sumptuous buildings, arcades and colonnades, passing over the bridges that connect the small islands that make up like a mosaic the land of the lagoon on which the city is built. You will see the infamous Bridge of Sighs, and you will learn why it is called that way... then stop for a moment of refreshment in one of the typical charming Venetian cafes, where you will taste small snacks made with fresh local products, the so-called Venetian cicchetti. Then again through alleys and calli (this is how they’re called in the local dialect), continuing your journey and arriving to the famous Ponte di Rialto where a very interesting visit to the fish market awaits you, before embarking on a traditional gondola for an unforgettable tour of the canals. The city seen from the lagoon will enchant you, and you can capture these truly unique scenarios in the world in beautiful photos.

You couldn’t wish for a better ending to your day discovering Venice!

About

"Venice," Truman Capote mused, "is akin to the consumption of a box full of chocolate liqueurs all at once. With a private Venice Gondola Tour and an expert guide, you and your group can fully immerse yourselves in this enchanting wonderland and indulge in its exceptional flavors. Amidst the labyrinth of canals that intertwine to form the Venetian islands, our signature tour will take you on a journey through alleys and over bridges, past majestic marble palaces and intricate arcades that adorn the lagoon. With no traffic allowed on the roads, the water serves as the main thoroughfare and boats are the means of transportation; it's almost surreal. For a taste of delicious local specialties and a sip of local wines, join the locals in their favorite cafés and markets during the day. You will also get an insider's view of Venetian lifestyle, which is a rare opportunity. Set off with your personal guide to explore one of the most extraordinary and romantic cities in the world. Experience the unique essence of Venice as you revel in its treasures and inhale its exotic atmosphere. The Walking and Venice Gondola Tour not only offers stunning, unexpected views, but also delves into the city's captivating and dramatic history thanks to your magnetizing guide. Gaze upon the luxurious St Mark's Square that is ensconced by the arcaded Procuratie building and Correr Museum, and crowned by the eye-catching polychrome domes of the grand St Mark's Basilica. The Doge's Palace, Palazzo Ducale, that once sheltered Venetian governance, and the Palace of Justice with its creepy dungeons, including the Doge's private quarters, are also worth a visit. Gaze at the world-renowned Bridge of Sighs while your guide takes you there and tells you the unfortunate history that led to its name. Step into the charming little joints and cafés to taste the traditional fare while taking a few breaks along the way. Don't miss out on the famous Venetian cicchetti, which are similar to "tapas-like" snacks made with fresh local products! Board your private Gondola and embark on an unforgettable Venice Gondola Tour after indulging in a delectable Venetian tasting at Ponte di Rialto- the quintessential bridge of Venice. Stroll through the Rialto Fish Market with your guide for a fascinating experience. Enchanting Venice - a day that will never be forgotten - culminates with a picture-perfect end on a postcard.
