Up and down the bridges, Venice as an insider

This tour offers the possibility to see Venice outside the most common tourist routes, but without forgetting the most important monuments. Crossing the "sconte" (secondary alleys where tourists usually get lost) we reach places otherwise difficult to find. This is authentic Venice, where citizens live, work and bring their children to school.

 Friendinvenice, how to experience the true Venice, private tour

 Friendinvenice, how to experience the true Venice, private tour

star-5
The best parts of Venice are always the secret and inespected ones. In my opinion in fact, "traveling" means "discovering". Travelers should therefore feel a constant urge to learn new things and see ... "more". In Venice, they would try to discover the whole city and live it at fullest. They would have to look at customs and traditions, support the arts and crafts, taste the local food ... in short, they would have fun. And in doing so, but also the emotions felt (and the eyes of those who led them). I would like to show you off-the-beaten-path, discovering the mysterious, the hidden corners of Venice which is not JUST St. Mark's Square: it's ALSO St. Mark's Square . I look forward to meeting you! Nadia, your "Friend in Venice"
