Friendinvenice, how to experience the true Venice, private tour

The best parts of Venice are always the secret and inespected ones.

In my opinion in fact, "traveling" means "discovering". Travelers should therefore feel a constant urge to learn new things and see ... "more". In Venice, they would try to discover the whole city and live it at fullest. They would have to look at customs and traditions, support the arts and crafts, taste the local food ... in short, they would have fun. And in doing so, but also the emotions felt (and the eyes of those who led them). I would like to show you off-the-beaten-path, discovering the mysterious, the hidden corners of Venice which is not JUST St. Mark's Square: it's ALSO St. Mark's Square

. I look forward to meeting you!

      Open the secret door to Venice with a native Venetian guide.

Discover Venice with a native Venetian guide! This 2 hours private walk of Venice is the perfect walk to take upon arrival in Venice. After this tour, you'll have a good feel for the city and be able to navigate Venice like a local for the remainder of your holiday. Your guide will introduce you to this special place, its layout and history, with an insider's perspective, to make the most of your first step onto this amazing city made up of hundreds of tiny islands joined by an equally dizzying number of bridges. During your tour you'll get a good feel for how genuine Venetians used to live and how they live today in this unique city. Visit markets including the beautiful fish market, learn how to order a glass of wine or an espresso in a bar, stop for cicchetti (appetizers) or a sandwich in a local bacaro.

We believe that this is the key to visiting this amazing city and we want to share our knowledge with you. The walk includes many of the most famous sights such as St. Mark's Square, the Frari, San Marco and Rialto as well as very interesting off-the-beaten-path sites. You will stop for a cappuccino along the way at a charming cafe and from a ferry landing learn to cross the Grand Canal standing up in a gondola as the Venetians do! You will also visit some of the less-traveled areas of Venice where Venetians live and which are away from the congestion of the St Mark's area, discussing the treasures, oddities and artistic and architectural heritage of this unique city. During this tour your guide will suggest additional itineraries for you to see the best works of art, restaurants and other notable or hidden Venetian sights.
