You will meet your docent in front of the hotel Locanda Ca' San Marcuola, which is located at Campo San Marcuola, Cannaregio 1763. Campo San Marcuola is a short walking distance from the San Marcuola vaporetto stop. Given the complicated nature of transportation and city navigation in Venice, we suggest allowing yourselves more time than you feel necessary to arrive at the meeting point.
Context walks can be cancelled up to 48 hours prior to the walk with an 85% refund. Within 48 hours all reservations are final and cannot be refunded. Walks are held rain or shine with some variations to accommodate the weather. If you are running late for your meeting with our docent, we ask that you call to alert us so that we can relay the message to the docent. No shows are treated as last-minute cancellations and are non-refundable.
