What to Expect
Choose a tour time that suits your schedule when you book. Then, meet your guide (and small group if you didn't select a private tour) in the center of Venice. With tales of maritime Venice ringing in your ears, stroll around the cobbles, exploring neighborhoods, such as Cannaregio and the sight-laden enclaves of San Marco and Rialto. Cross the Rialto Bridge and then amble past Marco Polo’s House, where the intrepid explorer is said to have been born. Hear tales of Titian, the painter who adopted the city as his own and see the Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, where he was laid to rest. Continue through Campo San Bartolomeo to see the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, where many of the city’s doges lay buried. Then pause by Scuola Grande di San Rocco, a palace (palazzo) rich with Tintoretto art. Your tour tends at St. Mark’s Square.

I appreciate being on a tour with someone who grew up and lives in Venice. There were only 6 in our group so it was easy to ask questions and have discussions about Venice.

Sergio was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions. Took us off the beaten path as well as to major sights. We learned a lot of the history of Venice. We would highly recommend this tour with Sergio. Kevin & Linda

We took this tour our first day in Venice. Lara did a great job of pointing out things we might not have noticed and covering a lot of territory. Good way to get oriented and learn a lot.

Our guide Denisa was very knowledgeable and fun. She guided us through the maze of streets at a easy pace giving us information at the stops. The fish market was interesting to name just one thing. Well worth doing to see parts of Venice most people miss.
