Discover the side of Venice that many visitors don’t see on a leisurely paced, 3-hour walking tour, packed with historical anecdotes, quirky stories and little-known facts. With a local guide, knowledgeable about Venice’s past, you'll explore the Rialto Market and San Polo neighborhoods, crossing over the Grand Canal by gondola. Then enjoy a true taste of Italy with some Cicchetti (Venetian tapas) and a glass of wine at a local osteria.


  • Explore the local streets on a walking tour of the city
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
Meet your local guide in Campo San Bartolomeo, and set off on your walking tour of Venice. Get the real experience of what the Venetians do before lunch by visiting an osteria and tasting some cicchetti with a glass of wine.

From there, visit one of the most beautiful little squares (campielli in Venetian) facing the Grand Canal, where in olden times there would have been many oar workshops for the gondolas. Venture through to the Cannareggio district to see one of the oldest churches in Venice that dates from 7th century and was restored in Renaissance times. Relax on a gondola, which crosses the Grand Canal to reach the other side of Venice, where Rialto and San Polo await you.

Explore San Polo's elegant palaces, a complete contrast to the narrow streets, dark passageways, delicate bridges, and tiny courtyards of hidden Venice.

The tour will conclude back by the Rialto bridge.

My daughter and I took this tour and found it incredibly worthwhile. There were just a total of 5 of us on this tour. Barbara was our tour guide unfortunately I don't remember her last name She was fun, lively and very knowledgeable and informative. We started out by exploring the Rialto market area but then also explored areas that were off the beaten path from the typical touristy spots. Barbara had funny and informative stories to tell along the way. Our tour ended at the Friar Church, definitely one of the highlights of the tour!! We were so glad we had a tour guide with us while we explored the Friar Church. In total I would highly recommend this tour.

Arianna is the perfect tour guide. Full of personality and fun and useful information. She pointed out lots of neat shops and restaurants. One of those we ate at and the food and service were spectacular!
