About DiscoveringVenice - Walking Tours
DiscoveringVenice is run by Antonella, Eugenia and Federica. We are Registered Tourist Guides since 2000. We offer a wide range of private tours. We also offer semi-private tours: a perfect way to share costs with other travellers like you. The private tours we organize can be either on foot or by private boat (Gran Canal, small canals, islands of the lagoon - Murano, Burano, Torcello). We are keen to organize customized exclusive tours to make you discover the "hidden Venice" and its back-streets, as well as the monumental classic Venice.

Just got back from an amazing trip to Venice with my girlfriend. I had been to Venice and toured it extensively in 2018 but my girlfriend had never been there. I researched private tours and found Discovery Venice here on Trip Advisor. They also have a very nice website that gives you a lot of choices for the type of tour you would like to do. Communicating with Federica (one of the owners) was easy via email and she found out the type of things we wanted to do or see and came up with a suggested itinerary. In this case, we did two half days of touring. One was on Venice proper and seeing all the main sights and hidden gems and the second day was a private tour of Murano and Burano where we toured a glass factory and bought some murano glass and some lace. I cant say enough about Federica. She is incredibly knowledgeable about her home town of Venice and easy to get a long with. Pricing was perfect for our two person private tour (Honestly, you can spend twice as much elsewhere and get half as much!). Federica even booked some additional sites to visit so that we could get a birds eye view of the entire city. We even started off our morning with a brief pictoral and geographic overview of the entire lagoon when she arrived at our hotel. There is soooooo much to do and see in Venice and truly4 hours each day wasnt enough but Federica made it worth our while. She even suggested some great places to eat and additional places to visit when we DIDNT have her with us so we got to explore even more stuff that we would not have seen had we not worked with her. I will be back to Venice again in the future (it is one of my most favorite places on the planet) and I would feel comfortable hiring Federica anytime I am there. For those planning a trip to Venice, I would recommend two half day private tours. One that explores the main island for 4 hours and then a second day touring the outer islands of murano, and burano. Be sure to leave plenty of time to explore on your own and get "lost" exploring the hundreds of canals and walkways. Thank you Federica and Discovering Venice for an incredible couple of days! -Aaron and Jen

We spent an amazing day with our guide Federica on a private 6 hour tour of Venice. We traveled in July so many of the sites had just reopened and there were only a handful of tourists. We were able to customize the tour to meet our interests which we really appreciated. Federica is a walking encyclopedia of history, art, architecture and customs. She planned our day to allow for a lunch stop and we ended with a stroll through the Ghetto. St Mark's, Doges Palace, Rialto- we saw it all and even a ride through the canals. Cannot recommend this tour highly enough!

We did the "Classic tour of Venice with Interiors" and had Antonella as our guide, and had a fantastic time. Antonella was extremely knowledgeable and fun to be around. She provided us with great insight about Venice, and we're so happy we took the tour with her. Would highly recommend!

Venice what a beautiful place, and the trip was made even more special as we decided to book a private tour, Antonella was our guide, we went through narrow streets that we might not have done on our own and ended up in the most beautiful spots. Antonella was very informative and put a whole new spin on our trip. It also gave us the confidence to explore ourselves on other days we would reccomned this walking tour all day long, very special thank you Antonella
