A wonderful experience to live the city, alone on foot or by public boats, as the Venetians do, among the beautiful squares, narrow streets, canals and islands of the lagoon with our guided tours.

Discover the ghetto of Venice and its millenary history, find the Arsenale and get to know its splendor when they built one ship a day. Along the routes stop in the typical taverns to drink a glass of wine and taste a "cicchetto" of fish.

Experience the atmosphere of St. Mark's Square among stories and legends like those of the millenary struggle and collaboration with the Arabs: the East and Byzantium. Step by step reach the Rialto Bridge and discover the famous fish market.

Slowly aboard the vaporetto, let yourself be fascinated by the Grand Canal and discover its centuries-old history with the legends of its 200 Palaces, while the gondolas parade by.

Sail across the uncontaminated lagoon to discover the Venetian islands: Murano, Burano and Torcello!

I had the chance to visit Venice as soon as the lockdown ended. With this tour you have the possibility to enjoy the city on your own with your time. For us was great since we have a little daughter and we have to follow her needs. Highly recommended!
Great experience

I have learned a lot of curiosity about Venice and its history I guess there is no comparison with any other self guided experience and personally I prefer this to a scheduled guided tour I had great time with over 100 point of interest was great
Muy útil y muy...

Fantastico giro in gondola, ho già voglia di rifarlo.
Simpaticissimo il gondoliere che ha fatto da cicerone.
On più mi ha spiegato come nasce una hondola
Ok but dissatisfied

Glass blowing. Easy to find. Nice boat. No directions for lace tour. Missed lace demonstration. No info on churches just “Go!Go!” A long hot walk. Not worth the extra.
