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.

Excellent and really enjoyable. Knowledgeable tour guide. Had radios which meant we could hear clearly every word she spoke. Very interesting insight into Venice. We did this at the end of our stay but it would have been beneficial at the beginning as we would have been looking for the things she pointed out. Guide was enthusiastic and had an interesting way of speaking. Topped off by a gondola ride. We went in the evening, so it was lovely punting down the canals at night, peaceful and lovely to see Venice from this level. Would recommend this tour to anyone.

Our local guide was full of enthusiasm for his city. We got to see parts of the city that are not usually seen by tourists. The real Venice where the locals live. We were told some of the history of Venice and shown special features of how things were done in the early days. Our tour culminated with a gondola ride on both the Grand Canal and some smaller canals. As it was dark we were unsure what we were seeing but it was still a must do experience. It could have been made better if our Gondolier had given a commentary of where we were so we knew what we were passing. The only time he spoke was when he had a lengthy conversation in Italian with another gondolier who was beside us.
