Whether you are in Venice to visit one of the must-see places like St. Mark’s square and Rialto Bridge, or to breathe special atmosphere of this unique city in some little streets off the beaten track, Venice Free Walking Tour will help you get oriented in this labyrinth-like city, and allow you to make the most of your stay here.
Venice Free Walking Tour team will walk you through the history of Venice, from its legendary foundation on several muddy islands of the lagoon to becoming the most important trading city in Europe. We will take you where others don’t and will tell you the stories you’d never hear otherwise. Our guides have a true passion for Venetian history and will bring to life some of the best local stories and legends that will make your time in Venice unforgettable.
Each guide has a different route, but we do not cover St. Mark’s Square and Rialto Bridge on our Morning and Afternoon tours, because you can easily find these places on your own, and a lot of information about these places is available on the web. Our goal is to show you what most people visiting this city don’t see and share with you some information that you will not find on a guidebook! The tour will last from 2.5 hours to 3 hours and, depending on the guide will involve more or less walking.
We highly recommend participating at this tour on your first day here, to have many useful hints about what to do and what to see after the tour and some precious tips that will help you to feel like a local while in Venice!
You will see Venice through the eyes of a local, and we hope that this tour will be the highlight of your time in Venice!
