Full description
Discover a more authentic side to Venice on a 90-minute walking tour, and wander among the alleys and peaceful canals away from the crowded areas. Encounter precious gems of art and architecture, and get a deeper more intimate experience of the city.

Your guide will take you to some of the “campi” (little squares of Venice) and point out thriving “bacari” (local bars), describing the surroundings and telling you interesting facts about life in a city built on water along the way.

Head towards the famous opera house of La Fenice, before going to the Bovolo Staircase, inspired by the architecture of the Orient and a living example of the city’s bond with the East. Named after the Venetian word for snail, the “Bovolo” clearly refers to its original spiral shape. Although pretty hard to find, a visit to this little gem is worth it.

Stroll the elegant area surrounding the Rialto Bridge, connecting the Sestieri (“districts”) of San Marco and San Polo. Learn how it was a busy crossing area in commercial life, always crawling with local and foreign merchants. The Rialto is still the pulsing center of shops and commercial life in Venice, as well as home to the picturesque food and fish market of the city.

Enjoy a beautiful view of the bridge from a dock on the Grand Canal. Photography lovers get ready!
