From this well-known Venice attraction, walk with your guide through the city’s lesser-known streets, discovering Venice as the locals know it. Your route includes several campos, meaning 'fields' in Italian, which are actually lively Venetian squares and courtyards, surrounded by shops and cafes. Pass through Campo San Polo, the setting of masked balls and bullfighting in bygone times, and Campo San Margherita, the social heart of Venice's trendy Dorsoduro district.
See the Basilica dei Frari, notable for the Venetian Renaissance artwork that is housed within, and pass the grand Scuola Grande di San Rocco building, where many a Venice concert is held. As your walking tour comes to an end, hear the story of Peggy Guggenheim, whose impressive modern art collection is housed in the nearby Peggy Guggenheim Collection.
Your tour finishes on a high note, with a romantic 35-minute gondola ride along the Venice canals. As your gondolier punts you through the quieter city canals aboard a traditional, wooden gondola boat, look out for the beautiful houses lining the water, and see local ladies reeling in their washing lines.

Visited Venice alone, and this was a perfect way for me to go on a gondola ride. The ride was the perfect time at night where the sun is going down and you can experience both a day and night ride. The walking tour was great as well. Our guide brought us to a lot of interesting spots that I know I would not have found on a regular tour.

The trip was brilliant, the hotel was excellent the only down side is you needed a boat to get to the city center and back which was free from the hotel. However, if the weather is cold and it was freezing some days the boat only runs once per hour and the waiting area has no cover. Apart from that it was all we expected and very beautiful. The Gondola ride was great, but a little scary as it was night and we were only a few inched from the water line and the waves were quite big, I was at the front and it was a great view of the city, you must do it!
