A complete and relaxing experience to understand Venice in depth


The Grand Canal is certainly a must for any traveler.
With a comfortable water taxi, we will experience the beauty of the main street of Venice, along which are some of the most beautiful houses and palaces of the families that, with their trades and culture, did Venice great in the past centuries. They lived there, in those fantastic architectures that are reflected on the water, vibrating with their marbles and colours.
After one hour on the boat, we will take a stroll away from the most touristy areas: we will explore Dorsoduro, with its "squeri" and its beautiful views, or Cannaregio, where most of the Venetians live today, or Castello, formerly the neighborhood where fishermen and carpenters lived. You will learn about the great History of Venice, its traditions and habits, into a very relaxing frame, tasting a good gelato or one of the typical "cicchetti" if you want.
A complete, wonderful experience which will make your stay in the city unforgettable.

Itinerary

Starting from the agreed meeting point, we will explore by boat some of the hidden, wondering canals of Venice, and the majestic Canal Grande.
After that, we will do a 2 hour walking tour in some of the most residential and no touristy areas, to see the real Venice, where the locals live. You will hear the great History of the Repubblic of Venice, you will learn how and why the first venetians built their city on islands, you will discover some of the most beautiful corners of the city, tasting a good gelato or a typical cicchetto if you like.

A Recent Review of this tour

Wonderful and very knowledgeable guide! Nicoletta gave an amazing walking tour and kept us away from the crowds (as much as was possible in Venice). The boat tour was a great way to finish things off and gave us a real taste for the city.
