Full description
Get ready to discover Venice the local way and meet your friendly guide by the Rialto Bridge in the true heart of the city. Stroll the streets of Venice, and let this private experience help you uncover hidden gems along the way, like Marco Polo’s house, an extraordinary treasure chest shaped church and a stunning palazzo turned into a beautiful mall. Marvel at must-see architectural gems like a stunning basilica and a hospital in one. Move away from the busy streets and follow your local guide around small alleyways that you wouldn’t imagine finding on your own. Go off the beaten path and marvel at the city views from above. Your local insider knows a panoramic terrace with a 360 view over Venice. The best part? It’s accessible only by appointment so you can enjoy an exclusive feel! One of the most beautiful bookstores in the world has resigned itself to constant flooding by keeping its precious books in gondolas, bathtubs and waterproof bins. It’s a must see! Enter this rather unique library and even see the water from its windows. Time for a break at a neighbourhood wine shop filled with big baskets of wine. Your guide has handpicked 3 Italian wines for you, paired with freshly baked breadsticks. Fancy an Italian coffee instead? No problem, a cute coffee bar, and a local biscuit await! Head to one of the nicest Renaissance Churches in Venice located on a beautiful ‘campo’ square. It’s a real hidden gem with a haven of peace and calm, before making your way through a completely decorated and characteristic 17th-century Venetian passage. Your local insider can tell you all about its history and an extraordinary love story. On your walking tour you will also be able to visit the Court Nova Arch, Campo San Giovanni in Bragora and Pallazo Ducale. End your walking tour of Venice in a famous market and receive tips from from your guide for the rest of your Venice adventure.
