EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

EXPLORE THE HIDDEN BEAUTY AND FASCINATING HISTORY OF VENICE ON OUR SMALL GROUP WALKING TOUR

Your day starts as all great days in Venice do; with a stroll through the quiet back streets and bustling markets of the city. You’ll meet one of our expert local tour guides and max 12 other people for an intimate walking tour of the city.

Starting early, we get to the Rialto Bridge before the crowds descend, to admire its incredible marble architecture before moving on to the bustling Rialto market. The chefs and Mamas of the city are shopping for dinner around this time, so what better time for a stroll through the stalls, with your guide explaining what each strange fish or vegetable is and how (and why) Venetian cuisine differs from the rest of Italy’s. Throughout your Venice tour they’ll give you tips on what to eat and where while you’re in town.

Our walking tour continues into the atmospheric neighborhoods of the city, across countless bridges and quiet piazzas. Along the way you’ll see the childhood home of Marco Polo, the Venetian merchant who first told of China; duck inside San Giovanni Gristosomo to see paintings by Venetian masters Bellini and Sebastiano del Piombo; and discover how the “Church of Miracles” got its name – plus so much more!

Our walking tour consciously veers away from the beaten track, taking you to our favorite local spots; so you get a taste of the real Venice, as well as the big name attractions.

ENJOY A GONDOLA RIDE ALONG THE GRAND CANAL AND QUIETER BACK CANALS OF VENICE

We couldn’t say we were covering the best of Venice in a day if we didn’t include a gondola ride. After your walking tour you’ll meet a local Venetian gondolier and your group will be split into different gondolas (max 6 people per gondola) for a ride along the Grand Canal and into the quieter back canals of the city. Duck under little bridges, admire ornate palaces and watch the world go by as you sit back and enjoy that quintessential Venetian moment.

With independent Venice gondola rides costing around €80/hour, this half-hour ride, included in the price of your tour, is a bargain.

DISCOVER THE TOP TWO SIGHTS OF VENICE – ST. MARK’S BASILICA & THE DOGE’S PALACE – ON OUR SKIP THE LINE TOURS

We’ll give you a break for lunch after your gondola ride and meet back at St. Mark’s Square for the next part of our adventure. With pre-reserved tickets to St. Mark’s Basilica, we’ll save time wasted in long ticket lines. Inside, your guide will point out the features of this incredible church, explaining how its east-meets-west architecture came about; the shady means by which the relics of St. Mark came to rest here; and the details in the beautiful gold mosaics on the roof.

Our day doesn’t end there though. With pre-reserved skip the line tickets to the Doge’s Palace, we’ll walk straight inside. It’s here that you’ll feel the most benefit for having a local tour guide. Home to some of the city’s most impressive artworks and architecture, Palazzo Ducale is so much more than something pretty to look at. Although it certainly is that, it’s also the historic heart of Venice; a repository for the best stories, from Casanova’s prison break to the Duke whose face was blacked out of every portrait and painting.

With our expert guides on hand to tell you the juicy details, plus small groups so you can ask all the questions you want, your Doge’s Palace tour is guaranteed to be an unexpected highlight of your Venice visit.

It was an excellent day in Venice and Moses was an excellent guide.

I was very impressed with this tour. It was perfect for our time in Venice!
The tour guide was excellent!! Appreciated the small group. Thank you.
My only negative is the microphone system needs better quality. Entire group had troubles hearing. The Lav mic you are using is an incorrect type maybe more of a non directional type mic because the tour guide is talking away from the mic most of the time. Other than that nice tour.
Nicoletta was wonderful and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed spending the day with her.
Absolutely spectacular guide who had a staggering amount of knowledge!!! We will HIGHLY recommend Walks to anyone traveling to a Walks city!
Very knowledgeable and passionate guide who spoke eloquently about each element of the tour. Made a very positive difference to our trip to Venice.

Moses was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and informative. Excellent tour! The online booking was easy and we would recommend the tour to others.
Mose was a great guide, he shared many interesting stories about both ancient Venice and modern Venice. This tour was definitely a nice way see a lot of Venice on our short stay.
Paula was an excellent guide. The lady who was our tour organizer was very quite and hard to hear at times, which led to some confusion while waiting for the gondolas rides. Overall, the tour was great and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Venice.

Extremely wonderful experience!

Excellent tour both from a knowledge perspective and Nataliya's ability to offer a unique perspective! I will recommend her to all of my friends. Frank and Maria
Wonderful guide.
Francesca was very informative and a wonderful tour guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our time.
Thank you for allowing us to reschedule to a different day after our unexpected flight delay the night before our scheduled tour. We would never have been able to even wake up in time, let alone walk!
Amazing tour guide. Loved josie's stories and her guidance!
Susan was fantastic, very knowledgeable and clearly well versed on the subjects broached. The fact that she has-been a citizen of Venice enabled her to advise on other matters including the beat restaurants as well.
The guide Mirco was outstanding. He was informative, funny and gave us a great "local knowledge" of Venice.
Great tour. Francesca was very friendly & extremely knowledgable.
Great tour with a guide with the heart of a teacher. Highly recommend.
Eleonola was a fantastic guide. So knowledgeable and helpful. Gondola ride was lovely too even though it was raining.

Everything was great. And the tour guide was knowledgeable and wonderful!
Amazing tour! Our guide was wonderful and gave us the perfect lunch recommendation - 5 stars!
Natalia was a superb guide. Highly recommended for first time Venice visitors!!
Wonderful tour...Natalia was the best guide we had in Italy!
Fredrika was fabulous! Very entertaining, personable and knowledgeable. We were on a tight schedule to get to train station after the tour. She was very helpful with getting me to the gift shop and talking Italian to get me to right spot. Then she helped me shop, so we could get out on time.
Natalia was fantastic. So knowledgable! She was the star of the tour!!!
Two distinctly different guides- Maria and Laura - who were both very knowledgeable and shared their experiences which made the tours more interesting!!
Nicoleta was an excellent guide, full of knowledge and passion. Enjoyed the tour, if anything the second part of the tour was a lot of standing, which made the feet rather sore.
Great tour !
Moses was very knowledgeable and pleasant guide. We enjoyed spending the day with him and it was a great way to orient ourselves to the city. Would highly recommend this tour!
We really enjoyed our tour. Moses conveyed his enthusiasm and passion in his presentation. His insights into what really happened in history were refreshing and often humorous.
Very good tour. Well pace and we didn't feel tired at all. I would even loved it more if lunch were included of course with added cost which we wouldn't mind since most of us are tourist and are keen to try Venetian Cuisine.
Nataliya was a wonderful. Very informative and provided a lot of historical background and lore. Also well versed in the art history and architecture of Venice which was an added plus. Would highly recommend your tour and Nataliya to fellow travelers.
We had a great day on the tour. Guide was very informative and we learned a lot about the city!
Nayaliya was excellent!
Outstanding tour guides. Very personable, engaging and informative. Made you feel like you were transported in time. Would highly recommend.
She was awesome. Knows Venice history well and went at a great pace for all to enjoy. Highly recommend.
Paola was fantastic!! Her knowledge and personality was a perfect fit. We were a group of 4 joined by another group of 4 and Paola made it fantastic with her expert knowledge of Venice.
Paola was an excellent guide. Not only did we learn about the history and sites in Venice but we also gained an understanding for what the daily life of a Venetian is like. This tour - like all the other Walks of Italy tours we took in Italy during our vacation - was first class.
An EXHAUSTING but wonderful day, Andrea's guided tour through our Venice in a Day excursion was stupendous.
'Moses' was great, entertaining, knowledgable and boundless energy and enthusiasm for his work.
An excellent day with a very knowledgeable guide, Andreo. Venice is s beautiful place.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour in Venice! Very pleasant and knowledgeable guides.
Susan was great! She has so much knowledge about everything... I hardly recommend her!
Our guide was Veronica, and she was excellent!
Great job, Paola! Full of historical and local info, including non-tourist lunch options. She was punctual, informative, patient, and helpful. Wonderful day with Paola! Thanks.
Mirco overflows with enthusiasm!! Again it was a very hot day and there was a lot of information to try to absorb. We learnt a lot.
Susan is an amazing tour guide. She had answers for all our questions. Made the tour for us.

Elisabetta did an excellent job and really brought Venice to life for us. Thanks so much!
Elisabetta was an amazing tour guide, not only did she give us lots of the history of Venice but shared with us what it is like to be a local! Would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see Venice, it truly makes you appreciate the city so much more!
Another wonderful, memorable experience. Very knowledgeable your guide. Thank you.
Fede was wonderful! Very personable, attentive, and answered every question with interesting facts. Really made us understand the life of Venetians, past and present. Will recommend your company and especially Fede to family and friends. Caio!!
Moses was an amazing guide! High energy and enthusiasm all day long with vast knowledge of all the sites. We learned so much from Moses! He is awesome!
Wonderful tour ! Without a guide you are touring with a blindfold . We used walks of Italy for 4 tours this week in 3 cities and each guide was knowlegable and great to listen to .
Andre was our tour guide and he was very informative. There was only 7 of us so it was very easy to keep everyone together. We enjoyed the gondola ride at the end of our walk around Venice.
Excellant job! Knowledgable and personable
Our guide was knowledgable, articulate and totally professional.
It was a great tour despite the rain! Thanks!
It was such a great experience and we absolutely loved our tour guide, Moses!!!
Mose was a fantastic guide and so knowledgeable! He gave a great restaurant recommendation and was a very animated and pleasant person. Fantastic experience!
She was so helpful and knowledgeable. We walked away with our brains full. She also helped us obtain tickets to a classical concert.
Federica was a fantastic tour guide. She not only gave us the typical tour information but also about the food, culture, and what it is like to grow up and live in Venice. I can not say enough good things about her.
Francesca was terrific
Guide was fabulous. Made it so interesting. One of the best guides we've ever had on a tour like this.
After our Milan tour, I had high expectations for the quality of Walks Of Italy tour guides, but Federica was simply spectacular for the long duration if our tour. I not only learned about Venetian culture but learned to love the island and all it has to offer. Well done!
we had a great experience. She took us down the small streets of Venice showing us the non-tourist kind of areas. Gondola ride was great. She is very knowledgeable of Venice and its proud history. Thanks
Susan was an absolute joy to tour with. Her academic credentials were impressive....she obviously knew her subjects and was able to communicate her knowledge insanely well. Overall my family did 3 Walks of Italy tours and all of them were simply outstanding!
The tour and the 2 tour guided were excellent on Oct 25th. Thank you!
Moses was amazing. Charming, low key and very well informed. Loved our time with him. Highly recommend this tour.
Federica was fabulous! So knowledgable and made it so interesting. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone.
Federica did an excellent job showing us around the Rialto Market and nearby sites.
All of our tour guides were professional, thorough, knowledgeable, and dedicated. Special thanks to Susan in Venice and Cecilia on our Coliseum tour for their energetic and informative, immersive tours.
We loved all of our guides on these tours. Each one had special information about what exactly we were seeing. They also were obviously excited about what they were talking about. Smaller group tours like Walks of Italy provides are much better than the bigger 20-25 person tours we saw everywhere.
We loved Mirco! The fact that he was a native Venetian made the experience even more special! I wanted to buy an authentic Venetian made mask and he told me just where to go!
We enjoyed the tour of Venice and the tour of Florence. Both tours were a day long tours and thanks to the experienced guides we have seen a lot and we have learned a lot. I would recommend any of the tours offered by the Walks of Italy!
Really informative and enjoyable tour. It was nice to be in a small group and have a break in the middle of the day to do our own thing before the boat tour.
Great tours. Guides interesting , esp. Marco
Mose truly knows his stuff - and how to make our visit especially interesting and unique - from avoiding the crowds to interesting facts and wonderful vantage points to view things. Highly recommended tour guide!
This tour was really good. Mose was an awesome tour guide. He had lots of useful information and fun anecdotes.
Excellent Tour we saw a lot of venice and sitting in the afternoon was a blessing. Didnt have much time to get to a spot for lunch eat and get back. A little more time would be nicer
Both Tours and guides were excellent! Very informative, engaging, and covered alot of informtion. The tour was so well organized and meeting places clear and easy to find. Couldn't have been better for our first time in Venice!
We had Susan in the morning session and Mark in the afternoon. Both were well informed and did a Great job with the tour.
Excellent tour....excellent guide...very informative. Especially the boat tour.
All of the tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and had great stories to tell. Their humor was enjoyable. I highly recommend these tours. Walks of Italy is a top notch outfit. Thank you for exceptional service
Giusy was our guide for this tour. She was fabulous. We really enjoyed her tour. She was a wonderful hostess to her favorite city.
Was one of the highlights of our visit to Venice. Small group which enabled us to ask plenty of questions. Sara was very entusiastic and informative throughout the tour. We have been on many walking tours throughout Europe and Sara is certainly one of the best tour guides we have encountered.
Giusy was a very informative tour guide. She did a very good job, and was a pleasure to have done our first tour with. Thanks Giusy.
Both tour guides were excellent

Fantastic tour with a fabulous and very knowledgeable guide. Consider adding the terraces at the basilica to this tour to make it even more wonderful!
Great experience walking the streets of Venice with Veronika. She was a great guide with a great amount of knowledge and history for Venice. We were immersed in the Art and History of Venetian life and took away a great experience and a real good working knowledge of the city. The Gondola ride is with 6 people. Try to be in line first to get the main seat. For the price it was a good experience. Gondola rides are not cheap so this was a good way to relive that itch.

It was excellent. Thank you
Wonderful tour and wonderful guide! Loved it!
I recommmend adding more items to make the total 7 hour tour seem like we saw a lot. Even a quick stop into the church along the way could add a lot to the tour.

Elena was the best guide we have ever had! Her enthusiasm and breadth of knowledge on topics ranging from geology to art and religion was truly impressive as was her command of English. She kept every minute of the day interesting. We enjoyed the format of this and the following tour. Having a break for lunch on our own gave us an opportunity to enjoy a local restaurant and discuss what we had seen in the morning. We would definitely take another tour organized by Walks of Italy.
Good places visited with interesting facts about the lovely city of Venice. Gondola ride was a nice experience.
Elisabetha was amazing, one of the best Guides we have experienced in Italy. She gave her all at all times and then more. It was a great Tour but you csne up number 14 in the Search for Day Walking Tours in Venice, you need to loo at your SEO Optimization? .

Great tour. Very knowledgeable.
Freddie was a fabulous guide. I felt she was like a friend introducing us to Venice for the first time. Wonderful experience!
I really liked the tour guide as well as the information she shared. My husband and I thought we spent too much time at the fish market. The gondola ride was nice, but it would be very nice if the tour guide can take pictures of the gondola ride. People were moving about in the gondola not knowing that was allowed, so the guide could pass that information on because signs were not posted in any language stating this. Just some thoughts.
I was very impressed with this tour. It was perfect for our time in Venice!
The tour guide was excellent!! Appreciated the small group. Thank you.
My only negative is the microphone system needs better quality. Entire group had troubles hearing. The Lav mic you are using is an incorrect type maybe more of a non directional type mic because the tour guide is talking away from the mic most of the time. Other than that nice tour.
Nicoletta was wonderful and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed spending the day with her.
Absolutely spectacular guide who had a staggering amount of knowledge!!! We will HIGHLY recommend Walks to anyone traveling to a Walks city!
Very knowledgeable and passionate guide who spoke eloquently about each element of the tour. Made a very positive difference to our trip to Venice.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate. This was our first time to Venice and we were hoping to have the basic sites visited and learn some general information about the city and its history, and this tour exactly met our expectations. The only minor issue is that there were 13 in our group, and our understanding is that the size was limited to 12, so occasionally if you were the last in line, such as in a narrow passage, the radio transmissions from our guide broke up. This was no fault of our guide, who was first-rate, but might be something to be aware of. We definitely would recommend the tour for first-time visitors to Venice.

We really enjoyed the tour. Mose was friendly and informative. He explained things very well and answered all of our questions. It was nice to see areas of the city that we wouldn't have had time to see on our own and also to take a gondola ride. Mose was an excellent tour guide and we enjoyed hearing his information on what it's like living in Venice today. I would recommend this tour.
