A Day in The Venetian Life: Walking & Sunset Boat Tour

from €190

per person

Discover corners, islands, canals and bridges from a different perspective, that only true Venetians know!

Forget the crowd of San Marco, avoid the touristic pictures on Rialto bridge and run away from the standard gondola tours. You made it! Now you can start having the authentic, relaxing, nice journey you deserve. And Venice too! Because Venice is much more than just a touristic destination; the floating City belongs to those who know and love its beating heart of secret corners, hidden views, genuine people and traditional food.
You’ll walk and navigate with our trusted local guide among narrow streets and canals that only Venetians know, learning how to get lost between the islands and the lagoon! You’ll discover 120 islands, 176 canals and more than 400 bridges from a different perspective.
Breath, enjoy, take it slow. We want to offer a day in the real Venetian life, as a local would do.
At the end of our walking tour, we will get on board on the most beautiful old fishing wooden boat, the “Narciso”, with your captain Marco “Caveo” ready to lead you to an adventurous journey.
You’ll taste D.O.C Prosecco wine or other typical drinks with a selection of wonderful cicchetti, the local finger food, such as cheese, charcuterie and seafood (food and tastings not included in the tour fees and to be purchased by guests at their own expenses)
At the end of this Venetian life journey, you won’t probably need to book any restaurant! Venice is a city of water, earth, stones, wood and wind, but if you miss some fire… just look at the colours of the sun setting behind Salute Church or, maybe, just ask us to start from Murano, to enjoy a glass-making experience in a factory with our best masters.
