Our Guide Cristina was wonderful. She told us amazing stories about the past and has shown us very interesting parts of the city (by night of course) which was incredible. She's lovely and such a great storyteller. We definitely recommend this tour. Thank you very much Crisitna!

We spent two weeks touring Rome, Sorrento, Florence and Tuscany. This was the trip of a lifetime for me and my husband. I wanted to do the bulk of the planning myself (I enjoy that part) but also have the expert guidance and opinions of a travel company. We picked pieces from their extended and day trips. We set the... More

We cannot recommend this company highly enough. We did a 10 day semi private tour to Rome, Florence, Sienna and Venice. This meant that we selected our own accommodation from the list available and had private transfers to and from hotels, train stations, etc. All the drivers were right on time for the transfers and the train tickets we had...

I took three tours through this company in Venice: Essence of Venice, Doges Palace, and Grand Canal. The tour through the Doges Palace with Stefano was very good. He started off with a brief, thematic discussion of Venice and then incorporated those themes into the tour, pointing out where they appear in the iconography of the palace. He was very... More

Family of three we chose the walking tour of Venice to orientate ourselves on our first day. The meeting arrangements at the Royal Gardens were fine and we were equipped with our headsets and set off. The guide was not great. She sounded bored most of the time, complained about other tour guides, shops and Venetians, who she described as... More

Dear Jackie, Thank you for your feedback. It's a bit difficult for us to address it considering that unfortunately you didn't mention neither the tour date nor your booking number so we can't know for sure to which tour precisely you are referring. Presumably you toured on either 2nd or the 25th October which according to our records are the... More

We had a good time, but the stories weren't as much about ghosts as we thought. There was plenty of murder, and we saw some cool squares and went into allies I do not think we would have found on our own.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
