Themed Walking Tours
To focus your sightseeing, choose a themed walking tour. Visit the lesser-known corners of Venice with a guide on a hidden gems tour, or opt for a spooky ghost tour to learn about the storied characters of the city. Foodies can taste local flavors on a culinary tour of the Jewish Ghetto or a walking tour that runs through Venice’s markets and wine bars.
Walking Tours with Priority Sightseeing Access
If you want to get inside Venice’s top sites but have limited time, choose a walking tour that includes skip-the-line attraction access. Dodge the crowds at the Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica to maximize your sightseeing time and gain historical insight from your guide. Some walking tours also tack on a gondola ride or water taxi trip up the Grand Canal for an iconic Venetian experience.
