Full description
Follow your local guide down tucked-away cobblestone streets and discover some of Venice's most beloved buildings. Learn about the history and legacy of this sinking city from your hand-picked hosts who are culinary connoisseurs and history buffs, bakers, and bankers, and bring their passion and know-how to their tours. Get your art fix by visiting a contemporary art space that, from the outside, looks like a traditional villa. From here explore an all-marble church and a true hidden gem, the Chiesa di S.Maria dei Miracoli, before making your way to a hidden monastery in the San Francesco della Vigna area where locals come to escape the crowds. Continue on towards Ramo Dragan, a completely unknown pier with amazing views over the Rialto bridge, and the local market before making your way to the 16th-century Jewish ghetto. Discover the early 19th-century neighborhood of Tre Archi and venture onwards to one of Venice’s local secret sunset spots.

Thanks to Giorgia for being a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. We enjoyed learning more about life in Venice and escaping from the main tourist areas into quiet back streets. Giorgia kept to our pace and included breaks when needed.
