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.

She was amazing and gave very helpful information on the history as well as the latest facts on the city. she booked a private taxi for the last hour of our half day tour and that was the cherry on the cake! Federica knows her... More

I booked two tours with Antonella - the first, a full day in Venice seeing some "insider" sites that I wanted to see, and then in the afternoon, Piazza San Marco and The Doges Palace on the first day, and then a trip to Murano on a boat the second day. There were 7 of us - 4 adults, a... More

FF showed our challengingly large and baby-addled family around town for four days straight--knowledgable, pleasant, flexible, fun. Couldn't recommend her more.

The women who knows so much. She gave us incredible insights into St Marks square, Doges palace and multiple neighbourhoods. She was very flexible and always checked in to make sure we were getting what we wanted. Would highly recommend her for your next visit to Venice!

We booked this experience via lowcostholdays.com. The walking tour is a great way to discover Venice and learn some of the history of this great city. We had a knowledgable local tour guide who spoke excellent English via personal radio ear pieces so we could all hear easily. We skipped the queue at the Basilica and took the quaint narrow... More

This was a visit to Venice with my wife and I. The tour with Antonella was fantastic. We had 2 hours on foot and 1 hour by boat. I can't imagine doing it any differently. We saw all the important sites and we were immersed in the culture.

This was a great tour. She was prepared and gave us some real insights into the neighborhoods. Antonella also arranged a water taxi tour and was kind enough to consider the weather conditions. I would heartily recommend you use her as a guide

My husband and I booked a 2 hour walking tour with Federica followed by a 1 hour private tour of the canals around Venice and it was one of the highlights of our trip. We had hesitated about the cost as we enjoy walking and exploring ourselves with a guide book but it was such a good decision. Federica didn't... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
