Full description
Explore the magical city of Venice without following the hustle and bustle of tourists and crowds. Kick off your private experience with a wonderful stroll through a picturesque neighborhood. As you take in the peaceful vibes, get a glimpse of day to day Venetian life, before stumbling upon a church that was used as the setting of Indiana Jones. Head towards the canal where locals love to buy their fruits and vegetables straight from a boat. Wander past the small bridges and let your local host tell you fascinating stories about these ponte’s.

Visit a hidden 14th-century church with a calming ambiance and a very beautiful and richly decorated inside. Enter the lush, serene gardens of a palazzo courtyard that are a unique find in Venetian architecture. Continue strolling past tranquil alleys until you reach a church that has a sense of modesty from its outside. From the inside, you’ll be amazed that this is one of Venice’s leading art venues thanks to its stunning floor-to-ceiling masterpieces.

Catch the water bus to San Giorgio Island with the most amazing panoramic view over Venice and San Marco square. You can also choose to climb in the tower and get an impressive bird-eyes view.
