Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Best guide I have ever had the pleasure of meeting”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I strongly advise anyone contemplating a visit to Venice to contact Discovering Venice and request Patrizia as your guide. Her knowledge of Venice was extensive and her ability to bypass queues for the Basilica and the Doges Palace was invaluable and saved at least two hours of standing in a queue. It was very good value for money.

As a guide she was not pushy at all and tailored everything to what we wanted to do and see whilst ensuring we didn't miss any of the really unique parts of the city. From the most beautiful bookstore with a gondola inside to the traditional touristic places like Basilica di San Marco, Patrizia knew all the history and knew all the stories to really bring the city to life.

“Great intro to Venice”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

'Antonella was fantastic as a guide' - that is what I wrote in my diary. We had been into St Marks Basilica but when Antonella took our small group we learnt so much and it made the history come alive. The tour of the back streets and an insight into the lives of the local people was fascinating.

“Dorsoduro area of Venice with Frari church”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

A very informative and relaxed stroll around a part of Venice we would never have discovered on our own. Very chic and pretty area. All our questions answered and further suggestions made by Antonella who was quite charming and of course well informed

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

Our family of 4 had a great tour with Antonella. We saw all of the main sights in Venice and also had a fabulous private boat tour. Antonella was very good with our two daughters, making the history come alive for them. We would recommend this tour to all.
