An Intro Tour To Venice & Private Gondola Ride
Welcome to Venice!

If you want to receive an introduction to Venice and want to discover the city later by yourself in total tranquillity, this tour is for you. I've carefully chosen the stops on this tour to give you a real insight into the city. You'll start in the district of San Marco, you'll cross the Rialto bridge, you'll walk through Cannaregio and Castello districts. I'll take you up on a terrace where you'll have a stunning view on the Grand Canal.

You'll discover quiet streets, pass peaceful canals and go beyond the areas that visitors usually see. Here is where my Venice is hiding its best domestic architecture and urban shape, that's what you're going to explore. As you wind through Venice's hidden alleyways, I will tell you of my city's past and present. At the end of the walk I'll take you to have an unforgettable gondola ride which will give you a different perspective of Venice, from its canals. . . and that's the correct perspective from which Venice was meant to be seen originally.
