Tour description

Venice is so full of art, history and magic that you can find something interesting to see almost in every corner. That’s why we don’t have a fixed tour but it changes every time depending on several aspects: the guide, the number of people, the weather. For sure we will move off the beaten tracks and you will discover that Venice has a lot to offer and you will be able to see what usually tourists miss. We will avoid places like St. Mark Square because you can find information about them in any tour guide, and are usually they are so crowded that you can’t even hear someone speaking, but we will show you the biggest oil on canvas in the world or the first Jewish ghetto in history and many other fabulous places that you will probably miss if you tour by yourself. Moreover our guides, who have been born here, will explain to you something about life in Venice, a city which is different from any other place in the world, giving advice and tips about how to enjoy the city at its best. And everything it’s for free. At the end of the tour, if you liked it, you will decide if you want to contribute to help our organization to get its targets with a donation.
Tours are in English Monday to Saturday and in Italian on Sundays.

    I'm waiting on the side of the church, close to the well. I have a bag with the Union Jack over it.
