We fulfilled a lifelong wish to visit Venice in early November, and wanted to make the most of our time there. We were recommended to Antonella and Discovering Venice from a friend and we were so pleased to be able to arrange a 2-hour walking and 1-hour boat tour with her. It was a holiday, and therefore very crowded in the main tourist places, but Antonella was able to provide detail about the main points of interest that we would have missed, and then guide us away from the crowds and around the city where we could experience, with her expert guidance, the architecture, history, culture, commerce and character of many neighborhoods of this amazing city. The boat tour allowed us to see more of the Venetian lagoon and many outlying neighborhoods, as well as see the amazing palazzos along the Grand canal (some of which we visited on our own later). I can't imagine a better way to experience this jewel of a city. Antonella herself is a native Venetian and able to share a local's perspective of her city. She was friendly and gracious and tailored her tour based on our interests. Highly recommended!
