Unusual Venetian Walking Tour

by Venice Tours Duration 1h 15m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per traveler Price is $26

Step off the well-trodden path of usual tourist sites, and delve into the real atmosphere of Venice. This tour takes you to authentic local markets, historic neighborhoods, hidden attractions, and places where time has seemingly stood still for centuries.

Follow your guide through a maze of small canals and alleyways to some of Venice's lesser-known attractions, all of which are unique to this captivating city.

See the Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo, the palace best known for the beautiful external staircase wraps itself around the building. Head toward the ill-fated La Fenice theater, which has twice been rebuilt because of fire (hence its name—literally, the Phoenix).

After stopping at the picture-perfect Rialto Bridge, head toward the Erbaria, a fresh produce and fish market by day and casual meeting spot for locals by night, to take in the beautiful views over the Grand Canal and beyond.

THERE WAS NO TOUR! DO NOT BOOK!!! Arrived specified meeting place (in front of the post office) at 3:45pm as stipulated and looking for tour guide holding sign saying tour (as stipulated on tickets) no one turned up!! Water til 4pm then called the number provided. Person who answered said we had missed the tour. It left 10 mins ago told her we had been waiting here the whole time and saw no one! She just repeated herself and when asked if could get refunded or rebook she just fobbed me off saying to get in touch with provider.. THEY ARE THE PROVIDERS! Save your money and don’t book.. we are still chasing a refund as didn’t receive anything for money paid 👎👎😡
