Overview

DiscoveringVenice is run by Antonella, Eugenia and Federica. We are Registered Tourist Guides since 2000. We offer a wide range of private tours. We also offer semi-private tours: a perfect way to share costs with other travellers like you. The private tours we organize can be either on foot or by private boat (Gran Canal, small canals, islands of the lagoon - Murano, Burano, Torcello). We are keen to organize customized exclusive tours to make you discover the "hidden Venice" and its back-streets, as well as the monumental classic Venice.

An informative and friendly two hour walking tour for two couples, with Federica. Our tour was a fabulous start to our visit. The Cannaregio and Jewish Ghetto is away from the crowds, although still big on history and atmosphere, with an insight into real Venetian...More
