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
This is a free price tour based on donations. A donation to the guide is expected at the end of the tour.
Sadly we must remember this because some people take advantage. Be a responsible traveler and enjoy the opportunity to have a much more advantageous free tour for the walker. Make a donation if you do the tour, it's the only way we can keep doing it.
The tour is based on donations only for groups of less than 6 people. If you are a group of more than 6 people, even if you come with different reservations, the minimum payment is 10 euros per person.
In a city like Venice where a coffee costs 5 euros it is still a bargain.
thank you very much and welcome

David fue un buen guía. Ama esta ciudad e intenta transmitir ese amor a los turistas. Ha explicado bien y ha sido ameno. Recomienda lugares de interés y contesta a las dudas que le planteas. No me gustó que éramos demasiadas personas. Tampoco que hemos tenido que presenciar una bronca con una señora que lleva el museo de la Música. Él se disculpó pero para mí y mi familia resultó bastante violenta la situación.
