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 into 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 known as “Great School of Charity” (the Captains of Fortune). Last but not least, head back to St. Mark’s and admire the Malibran Theater, 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.

I had a great time on this tour. My mother and I went on this tour and had a wonderful experience. Our tour guide was absolutely wonderful! She was so knowledgeable throughout the entire tour and was able to answer any additional questions we had. She is energetic, able to project so everyone can hear, helps groups take pictures together and balances perfectly the time she spends talking with the time given for participants to freely explore. Would absolutely tour again!
