Overview

DiscoveringVenice is run by Antonella, Eugenia and Federica. We are Registered 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.

Federica is an amazing guide. She is extremity knowledgeable, flexible and knows to to move at the correct pace. She knows the little ins and outs of Venice, and would highly recommend her to anyone we know going to Venice.

Great tour to help you get your bearings and see some of the highlights in Venice!!! Our tour included about 2 hours walking and then about a one house boat tour - both segments were informative and easy to understand.

A perfect tour to see the highlights of Venice. We booked the day before through Viator and had an exceptional guide, Marco Buzetto. He was intelligent but also very funny. The kids loved him. Highly recommend as a quick but informative tour.

Our tour was totally customised for us. The big expense was the hour in the water taxi. Tours without a water Taxi would be relatively less expensive. They have quotes on the website.
