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.

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

My family and I went to Venice in November 2014. This is my fourth time in Venice and by far the best one! No crowds, awesome weather and a wonderful tour! We decided to have the private tour with Antonella, who was absolutely great! It was delightful to have a local guide so knowledgeable of Art History who guided us... More

Frederica was an excellent guide. Her knowledge and enthusiasm helped make our visit to Venice (our first) extremely interesting and enjoyable. We got to see an area away from the typical tourist spots. She was very flexible and responsive to our needs and interests. Fantastic!

Based on recommendations from Tripadvisor and Rick Steves, we reserved time with guide Federica on our first full day in Venice. Her knowledge and enthusiasm, as well as her willingness to be flexible according to our interests made this tour the highlight of our four day stay. We elected to spend our time seeing the Palazzo Ducale and the Basilica... More

We just returned from an amazing trip to Venice. Before going I heard many complaints of crowded streets, tourist restaurants and spending hours lost in the labyrinth of narrow streets. Our experience was nothing like that!! From the first meeting with our tour guide Federica we experienced the history, excitement and beauty of this amazing city. She was knowledgeable, spoke...

This was our first time to Venice, and any time we go somewhere new we always hire a guide for the first day to help get us acquainted with the area. Antonella was a delight! We asked her to take us on a walking tour of the city, so that we'd know our way around and know how the "locals"... More

Based on the excellent reviews of Discovering Venice, we decided to give them a shot...and we did not regret it. We did the 3 hour walking tour plus the 1 hour boat tour. We corresponded via to arrange the details. They were very... More
