Description:

Venice Events is a British-Italian company based in the heart of Venice,...

Venice Events is a British-Italian company based in the heart of Venice, founded in 1995. Over the years of familiarity with this country and its culture, our team have built up extensive experience in organising wide range of events: Tours, cultural excursions, private customized tours in Veneto and Friuli, transfers, wine tastings, weddings, honeymoons, romantic breaks, conferences and more, both in Venice and throughout Italy.

All Tours, unless specified, are operated by Venice Events! We operate all our own tours, you book with us, you travel with us! That's not true for the majority of websites on the internet that are actually selling other company's tours.

No standing-in-line to see the must-see attractions of Italy!

Venice Events makes reservations and pre-books tickets so you will never have to spend your vacation standing-in-line to see the must-see sights of Italy. Venice Events regularly reserve spaces for their clients to enter ahead of the public lines.

Fully Licensed Guides, Fully Licensed Drivers & Vehicles

We prefer to offer the best tours we can offer, with professional guides who have backgrounds in Art & History, who have dedicated their lives to provide clients with memories that will last them a lifetime, and who have the ability to entertain all members of the family.

I went on this small boat tour with my husband hoping to see more of Venice. The problem was that due to most of the boat being under cover, and all the standing spots taken up, we could hardly see a thing. The tour guide never checked that everyone could see, or were comfortable. When I made a complaint to... More

Although this tour involved an early start and several hours travelling it was well worth it! The stunning views from the mountains were brilliant and a far cry from the crowded city of Venice! A stop at Cortina on the way was also useful. Overall, the tour made us feel like we had had a 2-centre holiday. It was quite... More

We visited Venice for the second time in the month of October and I think is the most beautiful period because the weather is perfect for cisiting the city. For half day we took a combined tour with Venice Eventes starting with a 30 mintues gondola ride on the channels and after this a guided tour of San Marco Basilica... More

Booked two tours with Venice Events. Both were excellent and we couldn't ask for any more. We did the grand canal boat tour and the multi island day trip on separate days, both of which we highly recommend. The tour guides on both trips were excellent and very punctual. Everything was exactly as described and the staff in the office... More

We visited Venice just for a weekend, but with this combined tour we had the chance to have a wonderful time! Gondola ride, San Marco square and a boat tour! Cheers, Grazie!

Excellent, in addition to information on Academia Museum, Rialto Bridge St Marks etc you get a story of Casanova being befriended in a time of need. You get a history of the importance of the City and commerce, of Marco Polo, merchant marine and banking as well as architecture. So take the tour enjoy and learn.

Booked this trip a couple days before we left for Venice. Maria Rosa was so helpful in getting this set up. Our Spectacular Grand Canal Tour with guide Monica was a wonderful way to initially see Venice, grab a little bit of background, and start our trip. Thanks so much for your help ahead of time and a terrific "first... More

Excellent tour of the Doges palace and its prisons. Best guide we've had in Italy - she was informative, full of life, funny and very kind and patient with some of the older members of the tour who weren't as mobile :) Highly recommended!

We took four tours with Venice Walks & Tours during a recent trip to Venice. One tour was the small boat tour of the Grand canal. This was very good. We also took the combined tour or the Doge's Palace and San Marco Cathedral. This was very mediocre. Although the guide used a microphone, it was still difficult to hear... 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.
