Choose from a morning or evening tour, meet your guide near the Accademia Bridge, and then stroll to the elegant Rialto Bridge in central Venice. One of only four bridges to span Venice's Grand Canal, Rialto Bridge is said to represent the true heart of the city.

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.

This was a great experience. The tour was of the back streets of Venice and away from the main tourist attractions. It included views of one of the last Gondola building yards left on the island. The tour guide was excellent and well versed in the subject and the out of the ordinary aspects of Venice, including description of a haunted villa that no one will buy - interesting? Our group was only 6 and intimate. The Gondola ride was all that was expected and of about 45 minutes duration - enough to take in the experience. I would recommend the tour.

Unique tour of lesser seen areas of Venice. The gondola portion is short but nice. Out guide was a native Venetian who provided great information and answered questions well.
