While your cruise ship is in Venice, discover this beautiful city in your own way on a private 3-hour walking tour shore excursion. Share your sightseeing preferences when you book, and then, on your tour, enjoy an itinerary customized to you. Depending on your wishes, see lesser-known districts such as the untouristy Cannaregio Quarter, trawl the buzzing Rialto fish market, or visit some of Venice’s hidden churches. Finish at a local bar with a complimentary wine and delicious appetizer, and enjoy the full and expert attention of your private guide throughout.

When your cruise ship is moored at Venice, book this private shore excursion walking tour and get to know this exquisite city in your own, preferred way.

Depending on your wishes, you may want to view some of Venice’s beautiful churches, such as the Church of San Zaccaria and Church of Santa Maria Formosa, the first church on the Rialto to be dedicated to the Virgin Mary in 842. Other sites might include the bustling Rialto Fish Market, where the stalls are piled with fish and seafood freshly plucked from Venice’s lagoon.
Alternatively, perhaps explore the atmospheric Cannaregio Quarter. Roam the hidden corners of this traditional area and learn how it was made famous by Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice. On your wanders, perhaps admire its little-known churches such as the 14th-century Church of Madonna dell’Orto or the opulent Church of Santa Maria Assunta, known as I Gesuiti.
Whatever you see, your guide will tell fascinating stories about Venice’s history and architecture as you go, although please bear in mind that they won’t be able to accompany you inside any churches or historical buildings.
As your 3-hour tour ends, follow your guide into a local bar that’s beloved by the locals. Settle in and savor the atmosphere as you enjoy a complimentary glass of wine and tasty appetizer. As you sip, chat to your guide about what you’ve seen and learn more about this fascinating city.
After, walk back to the original starting point and end your tour when you leave your guide.
