Overview
Discover magical Venice with a local by your side. Drink like a Venetian at some of our favourite and most authentic bacari wine bars. Cross the famous canal on a traghetto gondola like the locals do and explore the heart of the city: Rialto. Taste flavoursome regional wines and mouth-watering local cuisine. Get the lowdown on Venice and discover the secrets of the iconic and oh-so-Italian aperitivo, vino in hand. This small group tour is limited to maximum 12 guests.

Stroll through the streets of the Cannaregio neighborhood to an 18th-century watering hole famed for its polpette (spicy fried meatballs) before crossing the Grand Canal on a passenger ferry.

This was one of the best tours I have been on. I went in April of 2019 on a solo trip. Giovanna was the guide and she did a awesome job with keeping the group moving and entertained. There is a LOT of walking involved and recommend that you have a great pair of walking shoes.

What do Americans, Scots, and Australians have in common? A tour with Giovanna! This tour combines a little backstreet tour with wine tasting and appetizers customized to dietary preference. Really enjoyed the tour and the small group.

We are happy to see you enjoyed the tour and all the inclusions! We will check on the issue with the guide though, the first rule is not to rush our guests as we want you to have a nice experience. Thank you for letting us know of this. We hope you give Urban Adventures a second chance in the future!
