First of all I can't believe this tour was free! I have taken many tours and paid good money but this was one of the most insightful, infomative tours! Francesco took us to so many of the hidden gems of Venice and gave us so much history. The tour lasted about 4 hours with a break in between. He showed... More

We took the afternoon tour today and it was fantastic. Our guide was Adam. Adam shared lots of great information and provided lots of tips of where to eat in Venice. We went to one of his restaurants recommendations after and it was great! Highly recommend!

Andrea was a fantastic host. Our first walking tour experience and he was very informative and took us to parts we would have never know to visit alone. A really eye opener. The tour ran at a good pace to keep up and Andrea was good at answering all questions even once the tour had ended.

Andrea was an amazing guide!! He was super knowledgeable and passionate about the city. The tour is about three hours long and hits several churches, squares, palaces, and bridges. We stayed out of a lot of the main tourist traps, and it was great to see other parts of the city while gaining a historical perspective on what we were... More

We joined the afternoon tour with Elizabeta after a very early morning flight. Despite being tired Elizabeta managed to captivate us with her fascinating stories about Venice. She is obviously very proud of the city. As we presume that the free tour guides are fueled by tips we were surprised that no mention of any payment was mentioned during the... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
