Full description
Enjoy a guided tour of Venice to experience a more authentic side of the extraordinary city. Follow an unusual itinerary to discover some of the city’s most beautiful sights not normally included on regular tours.

Meander through the historical heart to see the exteriors of famous architectural masterpieces, such as La Fenice Opera House and the Rialto Bridge. Your experienced guide will provide valuable information and curious anecdotes from the city’s long history.
