Hidden Gems of Venice Walking Tour, Rialto Bridge and Gondola

This tour is perfect for those who want to skip the crowded and touristy sites for a more off-the-beaten path and personal experience.

Your local and professional tour guide is full of knowledge and will take you to the Fenice Theater, world-famous for the opera masterpieces it hosts every year.

Continue through a tiny calle, or alley, to the Scala of the Bovolo, a hidden architectural masterpiece that blends both Gothic and Renaissance styles. At the Rialto Bridge area, you will stroll along the famous Mercerie, a historical commercial hub that today is Venice's main shopping district.

From here you will leave the lively and noisy alleys behind as you climb into a shared gondola for an enchanting and most scenic ride through the canals of Venice. Enjoy the city's colors, lights, charm and beauty as you make your way through hidden canals, past elegant bank-side palaces and under unique bridges.

The gondola ride is not narrated. Contrary to popular belief, gondoliers do not typically sing. Instead, they are known to row, and most speak only Italian.

Book this unique tour today and get ready to discover a quieter, more peaceful side of Venice at a relaxed pace.
