Essential Free Tour Venice
David was a wonderful host and his extensive knowledge of Venice, made the tour informative. Lots of unknown anecdotes delivered with plenty òf humour. I would thoroughly recommend this for any first time or repeat visitor to Venice. Worth every €. Only small niggle was that 2hours in 30 ddgree heat and not once were we led to water.

David ha sido nuestro guía en el Tour Venecia Esencial. Se ha esforzado en organizar y dirigir el grupo de 45 PERSONAS para que todos pudiéramos disfrutar de la misma experiencia y escucháramos todas sus explicaciones. Nos ha explicado la historia de Venecia y los 5-6 monumentos emblemáticos por los que hemos pasado, todo en el barrio de San Marco. Al final, nos dio algunos tips culinarios y trucos para visitar Venecia. Son 2horas que se pasan rápido porque al ser un grupo grande todo es más lento, pasas mucho rato esperando o caminando. Aunque ha puesto todo de su parte para hacerlo ameno nos ha faltado dinamismo y algo q lo diferenciara del típico tour guiado de “toda la vida”. Sin duda, grupos más pequeños mejorarían la experiencia. Cumple las expectativas pero no sorprende ni destaca del resto.
Essential Free Tour Venice
Fue buena pero entiendo que hubo demasiado relato histórico ( que se puede obtener fácilmente simplemente con ingresar a Googl) y en cambio no hubo tanta descripción de los lugares por los cuales caminábamos. Se omitió pasar por el puente de los suspiros al cual se hizo una referencia y se indicó a lo lejos donde estaba

Highlights of a Free Tour in Venice

Venice, the capital of Veneto Region, is a magical floating city whose historical center and surrounding lagoon are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Most of the top-rated tourist attractions can be found along the Grand Canal, the “water highway” around which the old town was built. Here will see the spectacular St Mark’s Basilica, the Clock Tower, the Campanile and learn about the powerful aristocratic families who forged this magical city. You will also get the chance to explore the Doge’s Palace, one of the most beautiful in Europe. Nearby is the bridge over the Grand Canal, the Ponte de Rialto, and you can also take some impressive pictures of the well-known “Bridge of Sighs”. Finally, when in Venice, it’s crucial to add a bit of culture to your trip visiting the stunning paintings showcased in Gallerie dell’Accademia. However, if you prefer some retail therapy, we recommend going shopping at the Rialto Market.

Things to Do in Venice

Join Venice Free Walking Tour to explore the city of bridges, romance, and masks. Built on a series of over 100 islands, this is an impressive tourist destination that one has to see to believe. Even if you can’t come to visit during the world-famous, bustling Carnival, Venice is a breathtaking tourist destination all year long. The place is well known for its gondolas, long boats that sail through Venice’s canals and are ideal for a romantic tour. Do you want to get away from the masses? Take a vaporetto to visit other islands located also in the archipelago of the Venetian lagoon, Murano and Burano. Murano is world famous for its exquisite Murano glass shops. Burano, however, is a small and idyllic fishing village with picturesque colorful houses. In the late afternoon go to the Ponte de Rialto. This awe-inspiring 16th-century stone bridge is also a wonderful spot to enjoy the best sunset in Venice!
