DiscoveringVenice is run by Antonella, Eugenia and Federica. We are Registered Tourist Guides since 2000. We offer a wide range of private tours. We also offer semi-private tours: a perfect way to share costs with other travellers like you. The private tours we organize can be either on foot or by private boat (Gran Canal, small canals, islands of the lagoon - Murano, Burano, Torcello). We are keen to organize customized exclusive tours to make you discover the "hidden Venice" and its back-streets, as well as the monumental classic Venice.

we had a nice walking tour, some places too crowded to wait get into and a lot of the walk was wandering through the streets which we do a bit on our own. Patricia was very nice and informed of history and sites.

plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and
