Tour description

ESSENTIAL VENICE: THE HEART OF VENICE

On this tour we will get to know the most important thing about the so-called Pearl of the Adriatic, the most photographed city in the world. We are going to know everything essential to organize your visit from its history, to practical details such as transport, where to eat, tricks to save money and get more out of it, etc.

We are at the entrance of the Galleria dell'Accademia next to the Accademia vaporetto stop.

We will enjoy the Grand Canal of Venice and the palaces on its banks, highlighting the wonderful dome of the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute.

We will walk to the temple of the most important opera in the world: La Fenice where Maria Callas sang for Onassis.

We will discover the most hidden alleys, reaching where no tourist can go alone: the Contarini del Bovolo Palace, one of the most curious buildings in this city and a wonderful example of Venetian Gothic.

And of course the Plaza de San Marcos, perhaps the most famous square in the world.

This tour is an introduction to a first visit to Venice and is complementary to all our other tours, so if you have more time you can do them all learning something different in each one.

groups

Reservations of more than 6 people are not allowed. If you are a larger group you should book a private tour of Venice that you can also do with us.

Buen tour. Vimos cosas centrales, lo esperable para el poco tiempo del tour. El gurú dio consejos sobre cómo moverse en Venecia y dónde comer. Además de datos históricos Interesantes.

El guía no apareció y al rato de estar todos esperando dijo por el chat del tour que había intentado avisarnos de que no iba a ser posible realizarlo. Ninguno recibimos ningún mensaje como dice. Además se ofreció a hacernos un tour por la tarde para compensar y cuando le respondimos afirmativamente no nos volvió a responder y nos quedamos sin tour. Sinceramente, muy poco profesional.
