All you can see in 3 hours with your private guide!

This is perfect if you are coming on a cruise ship or you might be arriving on a plane or by train, in which case - sad to say - you don't actually have the full day to spend in the city, since much of the day will be spent travelling and finding your hotel.

My service can start exactly in that moment. I can come to the hotel or at the port or even at the airport! I will get you familiar with the surroundings and I will provide you with a map and a list of the must be seen.

Let's grab a coffee on your way to the Rialto bridge where you will start your private boat tour of the Grand Canal begins. (Depending on the season, we can adjust the starting time of the ride).

Enjoy a relaxing one-hour cruise along the Grand Canal and small canals of Venice. Along the way you will see some of the stunning palaces and churches that line the famous canal, as well as hear anedotes about the famous people who have resided on Venice's most important 'street'.


From Piazzale Roma or the train Staion a nice stroll crossing Dorsoduro passing by the Frari's Church. Campo S. Polo to reach Rialto and some time to look at the market.
We catch the private taxi for an hour ride and we will get off in San Mark square. We proceed for a stroll through the square and make our way toward the station crossing the Accademia bridge and see some of the most picturesques areas of Venice. Off the beaten paths area to see some of the artisans left still in Venice, may be a quick stop for an ice cream or a coffe. I will be happy to give you a all list of suggestions for places to visit and a map with the most interesting areas to explore. ****If your party is bigger than 6 passengers please write and I will costumes the tour!

A Recent Review of this tour

Elisabetta is delight!! Her knowledge of Venetian history, combined with other fun and offbeat facts made our tour amazing. She customized our tour specifically for us and threw in some additions, based on our conversations, along the way. This highly informative, yet laid back tour with Elisabetta deserves 5+ stars. We will definitely use her and toursbylocals again!
