Overview
Venice, Italy’s Floating City, sits on a network of 26 picturesque canals. Cars are banned on the winding, Renaissance-era streets, so you’re best off exploring by foot—or by water. This unique combination tour takes you on a guided stroll through Venice’s mythic cobbled Old City, topped off by an unforgettable gondola ride, undoubtedly the most traditional way to see the city.

Highlights
  • Guided walking tour of Venice with boat ride
  • Customizable itinerary determined by a guide
  • Tick off blockbuster sites: Teatro la Fenice, Rialto Bridge, Scala del Bovolo
  • See two sides of the city: on foot and by boat 
What to Expect
Meet your guide at St Mark’s Square, where you’ll catch a glimpse of its world-famous basilica. Prepare for the city’s history to come alive as you learn about Venice’s past as a maritime superpower and legendary home to phenomenal Renaissance artists. Navigating the cobbled backstreets, you’ll come face-to-face with classic landmarks like the 18th-century opera house of Teatro la Fenice, Venice’s oldest bridge, and an under-the-radar antique staircase named after a snail for its unique spiral shape. You’ll get the perfect overview of the city’s must-see sites while also venturing off-the-beaten-path. End the tour with a one-of-a-kind view of the city from a spectacular vantage point: by boat. You’ll step into an iconic gondola and float down Venice’s turquoise waterways, admiring the majestic palaces that line the Grand Canal.

Brilliant tour but felt I got ripped off buying online- I paid €45 for 2 people the day before our tour; if you go to the ticket office at S. Marco, Riva degli Schiavoni, 30124 Venezia VE, Italy and buy it in person it's only €40. I tried to call the ticket office on trip

Great walking tour. The guide was very knowledge and very VERY funny. It felt more like a comedy tour at times! He said how hard rock cafe was the best local cuisine you could find. Totally cracked me up! Gondola tour was ok-ish, a bit slow for me. But walking tour is definitely

The tour was great with a lovely lady who knows Lisbon :) The Gondola ride was ok but you get what you pay 6 persons!! To many but it’s nice to see Veneza from the water If you want something more romantic go just with your date.

Dear 497filipeb, thank you for choosing Bucintoro Viaggi during your stay in Venice! We are happy to read that you enjoyed our Walking Guided Tour & Gondola Ride: this is the perfect combo if you desire to discover the most authentic side of Venice and the most traditional one at the same time. The Gondola Ride in this package is shared with other passengers (and that's the reason for its competitive price): however, we also offer private gondola rides (even with live serenade on board) to who desire a more exclusive and romantic experience. We hope to see you again in your next visit to Venice, Best regards.
