Full description
Discover the most unusual and characteristic corners of Venice on a charming walking tour of the historic city center. Wander through the back streets to find the hidden squares between St. Mark's Square and the Rialto Bridge. Set off from the Campo San Moisè near St. Mark's Square to learn the history of the city and get acquainted with the local dialect. Stop in front of the amazing opera house of La Fenice and hear about its glorious but troubled history. See the Renaissance masterpiece of the Bovolo Staircase on the outside of the 15th-century Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo close to Campo Manin.

Very authentic

We had booked spontaneously, a Venetian led us through the streets of the city and told a lot of exciting and interesting things about the city, its history and its inhabitants. A tour that was fun, not overloaded and conveys a lot that is not on the Internet or a travel guide.
