Full description
Enjoy a relaxing 2-hour guided walk away from the main tourist sites and crowds. Make your way through the labyrinth of alleyways towards the famous opera house La Fenice which burned down and has now been rebuilt to its original glory, then a quiet walk towards Palazzo Fortuny once known as Palace of the Orpheans.

See the ornate Bovolo spiral staircase (known as ‘of the snail’) tucked away in a tiny courtyard, then onto a view of the Rialto Bridge and Grand Canal, Marco Polo’s house and much more. Take advantage of your expert guides and learn about the Venetian dialect. Hear the history of this enchanting city from your local guides.

Discover the extraordinary architectural masterpieces and why they were built that way, learn how Venice lost out on the trade routes when the New World was discovered, leaving Venice medieval forever. Strolling along the narrow streets, “calle” to encounter hidden away treasures. Explore the particular difficulties Venice has to face. This tour will leave you knowing so much more about this not so practical but precious city.
