Overview

An unforgettable walk among history and beauty, the best way to discover Venice and its famous sites, as well its hidden gems

An unforgettable tour to discover Venice through its narrow alleys called “calli”, countless bridges and wide traditional and picturesque squares, still the heart of Venetian people's social life.

Let our professional guide take you on an unforgettable journey among Venice's beauties and history. Discover the famous sites as well as hidden gems mixed with interesting facts about the city of the Serenissima and its everlasting history.

The first highlight of the walking tour is St. Mark’s square, with the description of the majestic St. Mark’s Basilica, the elegant Doge’s Palace, the Clock Tower and the Procuratie.

From St. Mark’s Square, we will move forward to Campo Santa Maria Formosa, where we will admire the SS. Giovanni e Paolo church with the famous Pantheon.

Follow the Scuola Grande di San Marco also knowns as “Great School of Charity” (the Captains of Fortune). Last but not least, head back to St. Mark’s and admire the Malibran Theatre, step through the famous Mercerie, once the pulsing heart of commercial life back in time, nowadays Venice’s main shopping district between Rialto Bridge and St Mark’s Square.

It was great to see the basilica and the palace without the crowds. Our guide was extremely friendly and the length of this tour suited us as we are not as young anymore.

My family and I enjoyed two tours with this company. We booked them both before we came to Venice and everything ran smoothly. This early morning walk was our first tour and it gave us an insight which set us up from the rest of our stay. Venice is beautiful and this tour company is excellent.
