We were very impressed with Federica‘s knowledge of Venice and its history. We highly recommend at least a 2-hr tour for first time visitors. It really helps to orient you to the city.

Patrizia Bracceschi was our outstanding tour guide. She was so warm and nice and her comments kept everyone interested, including my two daughters who were not looking forward to hearing any history. In the middle of the tour, we were pleasantly surprised to learn that...More

Frederica was great giving us the history of Venice..keeping our 11/13 year olds interested throughout. Walking to the areas we otherwise would not have known about and the canal boat tour were highlights. Well worth it!

Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob

Our tour was totally customised for us. The big expense was the hour in the water taxi. Tours without a water Taxi would be relatively less expensive. They have quotes on the website.
