Full description
Gain access to an app with 5 itineraries to discover the best of Venice. Download it on your mobile phone and guide your friends on this unique adventure. The itineraries have been studied and designed by local Venetians to make sure you can experience all the districts of the city. On your cell phone, the app and digital map will guide you step by step to reach different osterias, where you can enjoy either finger food or wine, depending on the option selected. Taste Venetian specialties such as fried fish or a "frittella", a local-style pancake with connections to the Venice carnival. Along the way, you will discover the life of Venice's famous red-light districts, and listen to stories about the Gondoliers and convicts from the area.

    Installing the app is very confusing even for IT folks. The employee of the tour office tried hard, but the app did not come close to meeting our expectations in comparison with similar apps. The benefit of this app for us was almost zero.

    Unfortunately, I did not receive the access data and had to phone back and forth for almost 1 hour. More information points are given than that you really get input on the interesting sight. I didn't know where to drink the wine and had to ask everything: - /.

    Unfortunately I can't judge it because I couldn't figure out how to download the application. I went to the indicated meeting point but could not find help.
