Description

Truman Capote once said that “Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go.” 

Explore, and taste, this unique fairytale realm with the privilege of a dedicated private knowledgeable guide and private Venice Gondola Tour all for yourself, and your family or party of friends.

Our signature Walking and Venice Gondola Tour leads you over bridges, through evocative alleys and along flowing canals to discover and admire the amazing marble palaces, rich arcades and domes built on, in, a lagoon. After all, Venice is but a network of tiny islands connected by land and water, without wheeled traffic, with “main streets” made of water and the main means of transport boats… it’s almost unbelievable!

And, during the day, you will enjoy the rare chance to join the locals in their favorite cafés and markets, for a taste of delicious local specialties, sip of local wines and insider’s view of Venetian lifestyle!

Meet your guide and set off to marvel at the treasures, breathe in the uniquely exotic atmosphere of one of the most romantic and amazing cities in the world. Our enlightening Walking and Venice Gondola Tour allows you to learn about the city’s dramatic and eventful history, and catch unexpected awe-inspiring views, led by a charismatic private guide.. 

Admire sumptuous St Mark’s Square, framed by the arcaded Procuratie building and Correr Museum and topped off by the exotic-looking polychrome domes of the majestic St Mark’s Basilica. See the Doge’s Palace, Palazzo Ducale,  which anciently housed the Venetian government, Palace of Justice and eerie dungeons, as well as the Doge’s own apartments.

Follow your guide to the world-renowned Bridge of Sighs, and gaze at it while learning the sad history behind its name.

Take a few breaks along the way to step into the charming little joints and cafès, for a drink and taste of traditional fare: the famous Venetian cicchetti, typical “tapas-like” morsels and snacks made with fresh local products!

Follow your guide to Venice’s quintessential bridge Ponte di Rialto for an enlightening visit to the Rialto Fish Market and a last, delicious, Venetian tasting, before boarding your private Gondola and setting off for a memorable Venice Gondola Tour.

A postcard-perfect end to an unforgettable day in enchanting Venice.
