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!
