Experience fascinating Venice in a private 2-hour walking tour of your choosing.
As you stroll the charming canals and streets we will share the history of this unique place. We’ll show you the most picturesque areas as well as the classic highlights (and perhaps some hidden treasures). In Venice every street has its own character and its own story; enjoy them as you can only do in the company of your own Venetian guide.
Choose from the following itineraries:
- Piazza San Marco Immersion: tour the inside of Basilica San Marco (45 min; not open to the public on Sundays) and the Doge’s Palace (1 hour), cross the Bridge of Sighs and visit the new prisons
- Basilicas & Bridges: tour the inside of Basilica San Marco (40 min) and Ponte Rialto
- Hidden Treasures: Basilica San Marco and the Doge’s Palace from the exterior, the Castello district, Ponte Rialto
We can also create a custom itinerary to your specifications.
Being only a 2-hour service the start time is flexible. As the pickup and dropoff points are in central locations within Venice the service also is suitable pre- and post-cruise (or if you are not on a cruise at all).
