Know More about this tour

Meet your local guide in Campo San Bartolomeo, and set off on your walking tour of Venice. Get the real experience of what the Venetians do before lunch by visiting an osteria and tasting some cicchetti with a glass of wine.

From there, visit one of the most beautiful little squares (campielli in Venetian) facing the Grand canal, where in olden times there would have been many oar workshops for the gondolas. Venture through to the Cannareggio district to see one of the oldest churches in Venice that dates from 7th century and was restored in Renaissance times. Relax on a gondola, which crosses the Grand canal to reach the other side of Venice, where Rialto and San polo await you.

Explore San polo's elegant palaces, a complete contrast to the narrow streets, dark passageways, delicate bridges, and tiny courtyards of hidden Venice.

The tour will conclude back by the Rialto bridge.

    This ended up being a private tour as our group of 4 were the only ones. The guide was really informative and entertaining. We loved the market place. The glass of wine and selection of 2 nibbles each at the end was a nice finish to tour.

    My wife and I loved this tour! It ended up being just the two of us and our tour guide Georgia. You could tell she loves what she does and loves Venice and wants to share it with others. She took us to places we never would have found by ourselves.

    Great way to see a different side to Venice. We had a group of 4 which was great. Very informative. Enjoyed it. Worth doing.

    The walkabout was interesting but felt more fun could have been had with the Cicchetti and wine. Only one stop for this as opposed to what seemed should have been multiple stops.

    With only 3 days in Venice and being seasoned travellers, we opted for something a little less touristy. Very difficult in a city that is virtually wall to wall tourists. Had a very good fortune to meet Cristina at exactly the spot indicated on the instruction. This day were a smaller group only 6 guests, so Cristina got to know us on a first name basis making us feel we were on a private tour. Over the next 4 hours our guide demystified and painted a fascinating picture of Venice, it's people, it's history, and it's status as a city that's a living museum. Highly recommend this tour and more importantly Cristina who really made this special.

    Would have been great I am sure but unfortunately we missed this tour and I couldn't write a review without giving a rating. We allowed 45 minutes to make the 20 minute walk to the meeting point but Google Maps and I became very confused. I led us in a wide circle that ended no where near the starting point. When I rang the tour company to say we wouldn't make it, they very kindly tried to arrange a meeting point with the guide on the tour, but this was too hard to coordinate. I very much appreciate them trying though.
    I strongly suggest purchasing a 3 paper map of Venice rather than relying on Google Maps if you need to be at a particular place and time as the narrow walkways and high buildings apparently interfere with the Google Maps signal.

    Loved this tour and our guide provided so much history. See the Rialto Market in progress and learning about the area was amazing included the finale of our special treats and wine. Would definitely recommend.
