Visit the labyrinth of “calli” and “campi” (narrow Venetian streets and squares) and find hidden architectural gems such as the “Scala Contarini del Bovolo”, a spiral staircase that belonged to one of the richest families in Venice.

Continue to the Fenix Theatre, where Giuseppe Verdi and many other great composers performed their masterpieces. Pass through St. Mark's Square with its stunning monuments as well Doge's Palace, Basilica, and many other historic buildings.

This tour was worth every penny! He took us to places that only Venetians can know and his recommendation for inexpensive pasta was unique! Unfortunately it was in English (despite the order for German). In addition, he had to lead bilingual - 2 families for German -> English and one family for Italian (yes, we were so few, so unique :-)), which means that the stories are rather short and only after a question on our part. We started a little late, but the tour took a lot longer.

We had booked a guided tour in German. It was then in English, although most of the guests were from the German-speaking area. The leadership gear well. However, general questions were discussed. The group then got none of it. The places were well chosen and you learned and saw a lot off the beaten track.

We ment close to St. Marc and on it went. To begin with, I have no idea about Venice history; but the guide explained in a way that even a noob like me could quickly catch up. He was really into the stories, you could tell; his excitement rubbed off. Even the weirdest questions were not a problem - he had the answer. The restaurant recommendation really pleased my taste-buds, too! Amazing tour, definite recommendation!! The 2nd part, the self-guided tour, was quite interesting, too. I listened to it on my way back to the bus so I could only get a few stops but there are so many you can access!! If u book this tour I'd recommend to take the next day off so you can fully engage in the self-guided part, it's worth spending the time. Well, anyway: Thank you, it was great!
