  • Small-group or private walking tour of Venice
  • Select a morning or afternoon itinerary
  • Led by a local guide
  • Perfect for visitors short on time
Start your 2.5-hour walking tour of Venice in the morning or afternoon. You'll meet at a central location and set off with a small group limited to 15 people. Alternatively, select a private tour exclusively for you and your party.  Your guide is a well-informed local who provides insight into the former maritime republic. 

Stroll the pedestrianized streets to historical areas and particular districts that include Rialto, San Marco, and Cannaregio. You'll cross charming foot bridges that connect some hundreds of small islands that comprise Venice, including the Rialto Bridge. Get a look at the surrounding area, once the financial and trade center of Venice, and walk past Marco Polo's house; the world's most popular traveler was born here. 

See Campo Santa Margherita and the Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, where the 16th-century Italian painter Titian is buried. Upon crossing Campo San Bartolomeo you will reach the Church of San Giovanni e Paolo, the resting place of many Venice doges, or leaders, of the city-state. See the Scuola Grande di San Rocco and finish at St. Mark's Square (Piazza San Marco).

Your guide can offer recommendations on where to eat and how to spend your free time in Venice.

Our guide was so knowledgeable and provided so much practical insights to the city. A perfect way to gain an oversight of the city on your first or second day. Group was small and manageable. Highly recommend

Great and informative tour. Our guide clearly knew Venice well and gave us recommendations for restaurants and bars to visit. We hit the highlights and also visited some sites that are not usually on the tourist map. Definitely a walking tour to check out on our visit to Venice.

Our tour guide had something negative and discouraging to say about everything, including Marco Polo, his house, and told us not to go to Verona because Romeo and Juliet were fake. It was a disappointing experience for my daughter, who just finished a unit at school on Marco Polo, and read Romeo and Juliet just before our trip. Also she said that Venice was built in the midst of the lagoon and did not tell us that there were many existing islands, despite us specifically asking whether there was any land. She said, “No, it was all water.” She also did not point out the landmarks that were listed in the itinerary.

Our guide was very knowledgeable. He took us all around Dorsoduro and showed us great places to eat and get a Gelato (Nico’s)!

Our tour guide Davide was amazing. The tour was very informative and little humorous details provided made it even more enjoyable. We would recommend this tour 1000.

We were lucky and the tour was just the two of us and the guide. We saw a lot and our tour guide was very knowledgeable.

Very knowledgeable guide. Went at a good pace. Don't use microphones and hearing devices so often time during our 2 hour walk, couldn't hear what he was saying.
