Overview

Venice, Italy’s Floating City, sits on a network of 26 picturesque canals. Cars are banned on the winding, Renaissance-era streets, so you’re best off exploring by foot—or by water. This unique combination tour takes you on a guided stroll through Venice’s mythic cobbled Old City, topped off by an unforgettable gondola ride, undoubtedly the most traditional way to see the city. 

What to Expect

Meet your guide at St Mark’s Square, where you’ll catch a glimpse of its world-famous basilica. Prepare for the city’s history to come alive as you learn about Venice’s past as a maritime superpower and legendary home to phenomenal Renaissance artists.

Navigating the cobbled backstreets, you’ll come face-to-face with classic landmarks like the 18th-century opera house of Teatro la Fenice, Venice’s oldest bridge, and an under-the-radar antique staircase named after a snail for its unique spiral shape. You’ll get the perfect overview of the city’s must-see sites while also venturing off-the-beaten-path.

End the tour with a one-of-a-kind view of the city from a spectacular vantage point: by boat. You’ll step into an iconic gondolaand float down Venice’s turquoise waterways, admiring the majestic palaces that line the Grand Canal.

Great area of town Great locals

We met the locals at small out of the way restaurants. Everyone had a great time. It was a small group and we could have stayed all night visiting.

This morning walking tour was my first exposure to the history of Venice, and it was wonderful! Our guide (whose name has slipped my mind, sadly) had a background in, and a passion for, historical renovation architecture, so I learned an amazing amount about the...More

Tour was SO BORING for the whole family not just our kids. Bring alcohol for the walk so it is tolerable if you decide to waste your money.... Gondola ride was great though.

Good for first timers

Our daughter in law had never been to Venice, but my son,husband and I have, so this walking tour would be a good way to introduce her to Venice and none of the rest of us had ever taken a Gondola ride before, even though...More

I am not sure if any age restrictions apply to the gondola ride.The experience of the walking tour and the gondola ride should be awesome for any age.
