Strolling Venice’s Heart with Gondola Ride (Venice Walking Tour)
The best Venice guided tours in Italy!
This Venice walking tour begins with a casual stroll along the colourful canal paths of Venice’s fascinating sestieri (districts) such as Cannaregio.
You’ll glimpse some of the best examples of Venetian Renaissance architecture. You’ll also stroll through the Castello district, home to the city’s second most important square after Piazza San Marco, and where Venetian explorer Marco Polo once lived.
You’ll be guided along quaint Venetian calle (streets) to one of the city’s most famous sites, the Ponte Rialto (Rialto Bridge). This exquisite arched bridge is one of the oldest in Venice, and is famed not only for its architectural style and engineering, but also for its stunning views of Venice’s Grand Canal.
Your final stop of the day includes the opportunity to rest your feet, as you glide along in one of Venice’s famous black gondolas, feasting your eyes on some of the city’s most beautiful canals.

“I feel so lucky being a tour guide: it is the job I had dreamt about since being a teenager, perfectly mixing my two greatest passions at University: Art history and Foreign Languages!
Venice is filled with fascinating details and traces of the past. To me, it feels like a gigantic “time machine” where every tour magically turns into a journey back in time. I can’t wait to show you around!”
