Attraction details
Owner description: DiscoveringVenice is run by Antonella, Eugenia and Federica. We are fully Licencesed Tourist Guides since 2000. We offer a wide range of private tours. We also offer semi-private tours: a perfect way to share costs with other travellers like you. The private tours we organize can be either on foot or by private boat (Gran Canal, small canals, islands of the lagoon - Murano, Burano, Torcello). We are keen to organize customized exclusive tours to make you discover the "hidden Venice" and its back-streets, as well as the monumental classic Venice.

I arranged a 2 hour walking tour of Venice as my (12 year old) daughter and I were doing a day trip from Florence. My daughter wanted to see Venice. Antonella arranged to meet us at the train station and gave us a very warm welcome. She took us on a wonderful tour explaining the history and even bringing a... More

My husband and I arranged a private walking tour with a fantastic guide. Federica Fresch has a degree in art history, spoke perfect English and is a true Venetian. We learned so much in the three hours of our tour and couldn't have picked a better way to ring in the New Year! Thank you Federica for introducing us to... More

My wife and I shared an apartment in Venice for a week during the Thanksgiving holidays with my wife's parents. My mother-in-law is a Department of Defense contractor working and living near Aviano Air Station, an hour north of Venice. She had been to Venice many times before our arrival and had already seen a lot of the city. I... More

My gf and i had a great half day session walking through Venice with Antonella. She was engaging and knowledgeable about the history of the city and its cultural significance. I'd highly recommend her as a guide.

We did 2 days of touring Venice with Antonella. Our first day was a 2 hour walk in Dorsoduro. In the run-up to trip, Antonella advised that with children, a 2-3 hour walk is the most we should do a day in winter. She was right. We spent 2 hours understanding and appreciating the Dorsoduro area with her, learning how... More

My family and I had an incredible private guided tour of Venice with Patrizia Bracceschi from DiscoveringVenice. A walk through the city with a passionate guide so full of knowledge is the best way to learn its history and uncover its secrets. Patrizia made it easy for us and our 9 yr-old son. I strongly recommend starting a visit to... More

My brother, sister, colleague and I had a wonderful experience with Antonella and her Discovering Venice Tour. My colleague and I had been on 2 other occasions to Venice but had not had the same indepth (yet relaxed) experience and seen some of the "local" Venice rather than all tourist venice. The combination of both was fabulous. Also from an... More

My husband and I had a fabulous few hours with Antonella discovering the streets of Venice. We had been in Venice for a few days and loved getting lost. However it was great to have a Tour and learn about the real Venice. We loved the stories, the history and the advice with regards where to eat etc. You were... More

We arrived on our cruise ship at the port of Venice in late October. As we had limited time to visit, we had booked a tour with Discovering Venice, and we highly recommend them. Our tour was booked to start at 9 a.m., and our guide Antonella met us promptly at that time. (Travel hint: If you are cruising, book... More
