Overview

Venice, Italy’s Floating City, sits on a network of 26 picturesque canals. Cars are banned on the winding, Renaissance-era streets, so you’re best off exploring by foot—or by water. This unique combination tour takes you on a guided stroll through Venice’s mythic cobbled Old City, topped off by an unforgettable gondola ride, undoubtedly the most traditional way to see the city. 

What to Expect

Meet your guide at St Mark’s Square, where you’ll catch a glimpse of its world-famous basilica. Prepare for the city’s history to come alive as you learn about Venice’s past as a maritime superpower and legendary home to phenomenal Renaissance artists.

Navigating the cobbled backstreets, you’ll come face-to-face with classic landmarks like the 18th-century opera house of Teatro la Fenice, Venice’s oldest bridge, and an under-the-radar antique staircase named after a snail for its unique spiral shape. You’ll get the perfect overview of the city’s must-see sites while also venturing off-the-beaten-path.

End the tour with a one-of-a-kind view of the city from a spectacular vantage point: by boat. You’ll step into an iconic gondolaand float down Venice’s turquoise waterways, admiring the majestic palaces that line the Grand Canal.

Two excellent ways of experiencing the magic of Venice

We were worried about the walking tour - we'd already walked our legs off earlier. Thankfully it was no route march - a gentle stroll round, appropriate to both the location and the people in the group, finding all manner of nooks and crannies off...More

Bad walking tour. Pleasant gondola ride.

The walking tour was honestly appalling. If you had given me just 1 day to prepare I would have done it 100 times better. There was zero history, zero interesting facts and boring repetition about wells, the number of canals in the city and how...More

Walking Tour and Gondola Ride

We were disappointed in this tour. The group size was such that the audio kept dropping out as we were too far from tour guide. The guide didn't seem that interested and the staff in the office were VERY rude. The gondola ride was lovely...More

Dreams come true

If you chose the right side and the right gondola man, defiantly you will have fun. Very romantic ride thru the lake and between the houses.

Definitely not worth

The walking tour was just a way to buy some time to slightly explore maybe a few blocks of Venice. Some history was provided and some areas were to be shown like the spiral staircase and the docks. My headphones weren’t working and my tour...More
