Experience something different in Venice by visiting some of the hidden gardens in the city on this private 2-hour tour. Located inside ancient palaces, the gardens show the history of Venice and its functional and social power during the years.
What to Expect
Explore some of the hidden gardens of the city and learn the history that brought the locals to build gardens in such a difficult environment. Gardens in Venice come as a surprise and although many palaces own their private small garden, your impression while walking around is that Venice is a city of stone.
Gardens played an important role, both functional and social, in times gone by and these aspects will be discussed during the tour. The guides belong to the Venetian Garden Association and are experts on the history of Venetian gardens.
This tour generally includes visits to 3 gardens – 2 belonging to convents and 1 belonging to a secluded palace, whose garden is a beautiful example of a renaissance Venetian garden as featured in the Secret Gardens of Venice Book.
