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 40-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.

Excellent trip to the hidden away places. The evening trip was perfect with less crowds

Interesting tour from and excellent guide that covered some less well know area's of 'hidden' Venice, rather than the main attractions and sights. The Gondola ride was tranquil and pleasant. Don't expect the gondolier to say much in the way of a commentary though! Ours didn't.
