Owner description: 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.

“Wonderful tour with Antonella”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

Our walking tour with Antonella was really nice. Her tour was really informative and since it was our first time in Venice it was a good choice. Walking around the different neighborhoods and learning some of the Venice history was very interesting. We even stopped at a local cafe for a latte. It was so good. Our tour by private water taxi on the lagoon and grand canal was awesome. It was quite cold in Venice during our visit so my husband stayed inside of the boat. I wanted to see everything, so I braved the elements. I took some of the best pictures of Venice during our boat tour. Antonella was so sweet and we enjoyed our tour. Venice was one of my favorite stops during our Mediterranean cruise, if not the favorite. Antonella's tour made it totally special.

“DiscoveringVenice Walking Tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

A walking tour with Antonella is a must if you are visiting Venice. For three very short hours, she captivated us by intertwining the rich history of Venice with the Venice of today. Our visit was way too short but it leaves many reasons to return to this beautiful city. When we do, you can bet we'll be booking with DiscoveringVenice again!

Fredrica was very knowledgeable and friendly, Asked us what we wanted to cover and we learnt and covered a huge part of Venice in the space of 4 hours. The tour was very much what we wanted to see and flexible would highly Recommend.

“Wish we had time for more than one tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

Our private tour of the Dorsoduro with Antonella was an excellent way to get to know the neighborhood where our hotel was located. Antonella showed us many unique features that would have gone unnoticed without her expertise. Reserving a tour with her was one of the best decisions we made during our stay in Venice. I wish we had more time in Venice and with Antonella.

“Great walking tour - Time and Money Well Spent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Through Tripadvisor, DiscoveringVenice was a great discovery. Our guide, Federica Fresch was very prompt and thorough in answering our many questions. We were a group of 6 women from Montreal on a mission to see as much as Venice as possible in a short time. Federica really made that happen. Through email, she guided us well in our choice of sights for our walking tour with her, with recommendations on what we could do on our own. She was punctual, pleasant and very well informed. Her ability to communicate and navigate through neighborhoods that we would not have been able to do on our own, was fantastic. We walked away from our afternoon with Federica totally satisfied and knowing we made a great choice in booking our tour with her. Thank you Federica!!!
