Choose from a daytime or sunset tour, and then, equipped with your camera or smartphone, explore and take shots of the city’s squares, canals and streets with a photographer guide. Capture the beauty of St Mark’s Square and Bridge of Sighs; delve into hidden corners such as the Rialto markets; and learn tips on lighting, composition, reportage and photographing people along the way. Enjoy the full attention of a guide on this private tour.

Day in the Life of Venice Daytime Tour (3 hours)
Start your tour and get a brief background how to see Venice through a photographer's eyes. With its bustling squares and canals, the city offers delights and challenges to photographers of all skill levels, with wonderful yet often fleeting photo opportunities at every turn.

Discover how to ‘spot’ good pictures as you explore the main squares and canals, and seek out hidden corners tucked off the main tourist trail. Notable stops include the bustling Mercerie shopping district and the Rialto markets, a daily jumble of fish, fruit and vegetable stalls favored by the locals that serves up an ever-changing tableau of color and activity.

Ask your guide to stop anywhere that fires your imagination, and get tips on using lighting and composition to create drama and record Venice's magical atmosphere. Your guide will also help you explore techniques such as reportage photography, and explain the best ways to approach people to catch their spontaneous expressions and interactions.

Lastly, visit St Mark’s Square. Walk around and discover how to record its beauty and palpable sense of history on camera, before saying goodbye to your guide.


Sunset Tour (3 hours)
Meet your guide in the mid-afternoon or evening depending on the time of year, and start your private tour. Learn how Venice presents all levels of photographer with wonderful opportunities at dusk, when the fading light and darkness reveal different sides of the city.

Visit some places featured in the daytime tour, plus locations that come into their own at twilight, such as the Bridge of Sighs and the edges of the Venice Lagoon. Get all the tips on composition, lighting and photographic styles as on the daytime tour, and learn how to capture brilliant evening scenes such as the sunset, the city's lights reflected in the canals, and more.

Finally, click your camera around twilit St Mark’s Square before ending your 3-hour tour nearby.

For me, this was the best tour we took. We met our guide nice and early and started as far away from the crowds as possible. We got to see some of everyday Venice, not just tourist Venice. And Mario was fantastic. He really helped me with the artsy side of my photography and was able to help me take better pictures of our holiday.

We spent 3.5 hours with Mario yesterday, and were pleased the tour was just for our family of 4. The photography tour was a refreshing way to spend our time and we loved seeing some of the back lane ways of Venice. Mario also told us a lot about the areas we were walking through. Mario was fabulous with our children (15 and 12 years). Our daughter had bought a camera the day before the tour and Mario even set the camera settings for her and explained the principles of using a camera really well. We loved learning more about composing photos. This tour was a highlight of Venice.
