On this 4-hour excursion into the Cannaregio district, you’ll also see a number of canals, Gothic churches, a variety bridges, and other atmospheric sights. On this journey through time you’ll visit 6 restaurants for authentic tastes of Venice, including the famous Italian gelato! Venetians were the first coffee drinkers in Italy. Stop at an old coffee roaster to sample the locals’ favorite. Your leisurely walk will take you along the romantic walkways knows as fondamenta.

It was a great experience. I can only recommend it to everyone who wants to get to know a different Venice from the hustle and bustle. The group was a bit bigger (12 people) ... but was a very nice mix of several countries. Gianni made us a nice afternoon / evening.

Amazing tour with a very friendly and knowledgeable guide

We went on the tour with 4 little kids and we thought that we might need to leave a bit earlier because the kids might not make it though all 4 hours but the tour was so awesome that the kids didn’t want to leave. The restaurant choices for this tour are really great and the tour guide was super friendly and patient. I would definitely recommend this tour to others.

Wonderful evening with the best international line-up (we German couple, American couple, Mexican honeymoon couple, South African couple. We had a lot of fun and our `guide` was an incredibly likeable guy Culturally not overwhelmed us. Simply recommendable !!!!!!! Whoever does not book this event is to blame. Gladly again.
