This walking tour is a perfect way to get to know Venice, both as a must-do introductory city tour for new visitors, as well as for anyone interested in the city's history.
The tour is composed of two parts and allows you to discover the lesser-known places of Venice and to try a means of transport found only in the city!
After meeting your expert guide near St Marks Square, take a leisurely stroll through the streets of Venice, learning about its colorful past through its most characteristic and iconic attractions along with its lesser-known sites.
Starting with a walking tour of the city, you will explore the area around Piazza San Marco and Rialto bridge. Learn about the top attractions and stop for photos in front of Venice's cultural centerpieces such as Teatro la Fenice, Scala del Bovolo and Rialto Bridge.
After your walking tour get ready to hop aboard a classic gondola boat (for up to 6 people) and enjoy a 35-minute ride through the famous Grand canal (Salute area) as well as the smaller canals around the neighborhood of Fenice.
As you glide along the Grand Canal, marvel at the glamorous bank-side palaces and churches and hear tales about how it became Venice's most important thoroughfare. The Gondola ride ends by disembarking at Vallaresso Station in Dogana.
