Overview

The Rialto is the true heart of Venice - and you'll discover why on this private walking tour. You'll also explore the San polo area, and its number one highlight, the Frari Church, enjoying personalized attention on your private walking tour of Venice.

Know More about this tour

Your first stop on this private walking tour is the Gothic church of the Frari in the San polo area. You'll see exquisite artworks by Titian and Bellini, as well as an imposing funeral monument by Canova.

Next, you'll explore the famous open-air Rialto fruit and fish market, where local traders come to sing, shout and sell their wares. The site of this historic market between Campo delle Beccarie and the Grand canal was established more than 600 years ago. While St mark's square was the political center of Venice, the Rialto was its commercial heart. The Ponte di Rialto was the first bridge built over the Grand canal, and it was here, on the highest point in the city, that Venice was founded.

This is a personalized tour with an English-speaking guide who is passionate about the magical city of Venice, and who will help you unlock its many secrets. Get the most out of your stay in Venice and book a private walking tour!

    Barbara gave my friend and me a terrific tour that covered many areas of Venice, not just Rialto, San Polo, and I Frari. Because there were only two of us on the tour, it was tailored to us. Barbara knows Venice inside-out and was easily able to answer all our questions. Just to note: tour guides in Venice who provide outside tours are not permitted to provide inside tours. Therefore, this tour did not provide detailed information on the inside of i Frari. This is not a criticism of Barbara; it’s just how it apparently works here in Venice.

    Our guide, Massimo, was simply wonderful: prompt, personable, knowledgeable and flexible, adapting to what we had already visited and leading us to interesting parts of Venice, that we would never have found on our own. Full marks for him.
