Tour description

On this tour we are going to visit the most important and monumental part of Venice: the Sestiere of San Marco. We will visit the most important theater in Venice, the Opera de la Fenice. We will enter the alleys and sheds of the city to find one of its best kept treasures: the Contarini del Bovolo Palace, totally inaccessible to tourists. We will pass through the Grand Canal, the main artery of the city, very close to the most important bridge in Venice, the Rialto Bridge. And we will finish the tour visiting the most emblematic place in Venice: San Marcos Square, where we will find the Basilica of San Marcos and the Doge's Palace, and we will learn the most curious details of the history of the Republic of Venice. There will be no shortage of recommendations, both gastronomic, about transport or essential places that you cannot miss in Venice.

*IMPORTANT: Groups of more than 6 people are not allowed, EVEN IF THEY COME WITH DIFFERENT RESERVATIONS, the guide may refuse the admission of these groups to the tour. For groups of more than 6 we have private Tours for 150 that can be contracted directly with the guide.

Éramos un grupo demasiado grande (25 personas), difícil al ser una ciudad con calles tan estrechas. Muy poca información relevante. 20 min para hacernos fotos, 40 mins andando sin hablar, 10 mins explicando el funcionamiento del freetour pero 5 minutos reales de información relevante.

Had a fantastic tour, only regret is that wish we had attended it on the first day, instead of last. Lots of tips, and information about the rich history of Venice!

Hicimos un tour por Venecia con Fran de Sevilla, una experiencia fantástica, nos llevó a los lugares más emblemáticos y nos contó la historia de Venecia de forma muy concisa, amena y con mucha gracia. Estaba pendiente del grupo en todo momento y era muy amable y educado. Recomendable 100%
