DiscoveringVenice is run by Antonella, Eugenia and Federica. We are Registered Tourist Guides since 2000. We offer a wide range of private tours. We also offer semi-private tours: a perfect way to share costs with other travellers like you. The private tours we organize can be either on foot or by private boat (Gran Canal, small canals, islands of the lagoon - Murano, Burano, Torcello). We are keen to organize customized exclusive tours to make you discover the "hidden Venice" and its back-streets, as well as the monumental classic Venice.

Patrizia Bracceschi was our guide in Venice and she did a great job and arranged everything for us and even met us at our hotel to start the tour. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. Our family greatly enjoyed the tour!

Went on a walking tour with Antonella and was not disappointed. She is very passionate about the city and managed to pass some of that passion on. It is not cheap, but money well spent if you want to learn more about this wonderful city....More
