Overview
Venice, Italy’s Floating City, sits on a network of 26 picturesque canals. Cars are banned on the winding, Renaissance-era streets, so you’re best off exploring by foot—or by water. This unique combination tour takes you on a guided stroll through Venice’s mythic cobbled Old City, topped off by an unforgettable gondola ride, undoubtedly the most traditional way to see the city.

What to Expect
Meet your guide at St Mark’s Square, where you’ll catch a glimpse of its world-famous basilica. Prepare for the city’s history to come alive as you learn about Venice’s past as a maritime superpower and legendary home to phenomenal Renaissance artists. Navigating the cobbled backstreets, you’ll come face-to-face with classic landmarks like the 18th-century opera house of Teatro la Fenice, Venice’s oldest bridge, and an under-the-radar antique staircase named after a snail for its unique spiral shape. You’ll get the perfect overview of the city’s must-see sites while also venturing off-the-beaten-path. End the tour with a one-of-a-kind view of the city from a spectacular vantage point: by boat. You’ll step into an iconic gondola and float down Venice’s turquoise waterways, admiring the majestic palaces that line the Grand Canal.

The walking tour was good other then we were freezing the entire time. BUT we definitely did get to see a lot of great things we wouldn’t have otherwise and learn more about the history of the city. Our tour guide was wonderful as well, a native who’s watched how gentrification

Dear karencC3937HJ, thank you for spending some of your time to write a review of our services. January and February are indeed the coldest months in Venice, which, for this reason, is less crowded and more enjoyable than usual. We are really happy that you enjoyed our walking tour: our gides are true venetians and they really love to explain the history and tell curiosities about the city. As for the gondola ride, we are sorry that it didn't meet your expectations: our boat tour is in fact shared with other passengers and that is the reason for its competitive price. During the ride, you get to see calmer canals as well as the Grand Canal with the stunning Rialto Bridge in the backgroud, so you have a complete view of the city from the water. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your vacation, best regards,

First, you need to get your ticket at the ticket office located in Campo San Luca next to the H&M store. The tour was about an hour and half and our tour guide (Tall guy with slicked backed hair) was hilarious and we loved the tour. He showed us back alleys and secrets around

This tour was very good and I would recommend it. If you want to take a gondola ride this tour is definitely worth it since the rides alone are very pricey. Learned a lot of history about Venice.
