Venice: Guided Walking Tour with Food Tasting

1. Venice: Guided Walking Tour with Food Tasting

Explore Venice on a walking tour led by a professional guide. Learn about the city's history, experience its culture, and sample the local food. Start your tour with a traditional Italian breakfast. Enjoy your coffee and pastry while your guide introduces you to the legacy, culture, and history of the floating city. Stroll down cobblestone streets and across bridges as you make your way towards St Mark's Square, one of Venice's prime attractions. Admire the stately buildings that surround the square and see the Venetian-Byzantine domes of the grandiose St Mark’s Basilica. Follow your guide as you head to see Doge's Palace. Then, take a break from sightseeing to enjoy traditional Cicchetti and try some of the local specialties. The last stop on your sightseeing tour is the iconic Ponte di Rialto. Learn why this striking and daring structure was predicted to fall, and why it's still standing after more than 400 years. Finally, head to the Rialto Fish Market for one last taste of traditional Venetian fare. Top your experience off with an optional gondola ride and see the city from the water.

Venice: Guided Night Walking Tour & Saint Mark's Basilica

2. Venice: Guided Night Walking Tour & Saint Mark's Basilica

With its awe-inspiring array of domes, arches and turrets, there is no mistaking St. Mark’s basilica. Dominating the piazza of the same name, St. Mark’s stands at the very epicentre of the city. And it looks even more spectacular at night. On our night tour of St. Mark’s, you’ll meet your guide in beautiful St. Mark’s Square, for centuries the spiritual and political centre of Venice - the Doge’s palace also stands silent watch over the piazza. To start our tour, your guide will explain the significance of the square to the history and geography of the city - for good reason Napoleon described the Piazza as the ‘drawing room of Europe,’ and the elegant cafes that line the square, including Caffe Quadri and famous Caffe Florian, have lost none of their old-world charm. During our time in the piazza we’ll learn about some of the other highlights on show here, including the stunning Torre dell’Orologio - a Renaissance clock tower decorated with fabulous sculptures, as well as St. Mark’s Campanile, the soaring 12th-century brick bell tower that is still the tallest building in Venice.

What people are saying about St. Mark's Campanile

I decided on the tour, with food and gondola ride. The meeting point was well described and I got the contact details from the tour guide from Florencetown. And then I met Lorenzo. I had him all to myself and it was great. I love tours like this. Lorenzo has an absolutely great knowledge of Venice and history and really took the time to explain everything to me. The three hours passed almost too quickly. He had a bite to eat with me (the food is included). When Lorenzo speaks Italian, you hang on to his lips. I think the language is just beautiful and Lorenzo is a great man. The gondola ride was after the tour. also worked great. Lorenzo even gave me good tips after the tour where I can eat well. I felt very well. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars to Lorenzo and Florencetown. November is also a beautiful month for Venice.

Our tour was very educational and beautiful! Our tour guide was patient, answered every question and very enthusiastic! She explained the art of the mosaic beautifully. We got to see the crypt of St. Mark as well as the pala d’ oro, a wonderful gem masterpiece in the 12th century. We went underground beneath the alter and saw possibly the originally stone of the church. The mosaics on the floor were one of the most beautiful artwork I’ve seen. Our tour guide had us imagine the times and helped you visualize what it took to make this beautiful basilica. From getting booty from the 4th crusades, to explaining the politics, religion and families that influence the church; the tour was simply amazing!

My tour guide was Davide. He made the tour very interesting with a lot of knowledge about the history of Venice and the people. The stops with the small snacks and also the tips for other shops / restaurants are recommended.

We were lucky enough to be the only ones so we got a private tour. The guide Davide responded very individually to our knowledge and interests.

A group guided tour, but I was alone! Perfect! I scheduled it at the end of the stay (3 days). I was able to find answers to my questions...
