The best of Venice with private tours designed just for you!

With its historic buildings, grand squares and winding canals Venice is on the itineraries of most first-time visitors to Italy, and it is a beloved destination for return visitors as well. Its charm lies also in the fact that is the only pedestrian city in the world. Here the dense network of canals carry out the same function exercised elsewhere by roads. Actually, from the earliest days one aspect of city life that most caught the imagination of visitors was to see people moving round the city not on horseback but in handy boats. Nowadays, this unusual city built on wooden piles in a lagoon is a work of art, an open-air living museum where history comes to life.

Whether you are traveling as a couple, taking the family or visiting with friends, there is no shortage of attractions and curiosities in this unique city. Let our Italy trip planners make the most of your time in Venice with privately guided tours designed around your interests. Through careful planning and collaborative approach, we deliver private tours of Venice around your preferences, providing helpful tips and honest advice based on first-hand knowledge of the destination.

The City of Water is one of Italy most visited cities. Certainly, there is plenty to keep you entertained all year round. St Mark’s Square, the Grand Canal, the Bridge of Sighs, the gondolas, the lace of Burano, and the glass of Murano, all contribute to the magic of Venice. Visitors come to admire the most famous attractions but also to attend events including the Carnival, the Art Biennale and the Venice International Film Festival. And if you are lucky to be in town on the first Sunday of September, you will get to witness the Regata Storica. This is one of the most important traditional events in Venice when locals dress in historic Venetian costumes and ride down the Grand Canal on highly decorated boats.

The worry that most people have is the crowd. In fact, combined with a constant throng of tourists, Venice can be overwhelming. That said leave the crowds behind!

It is great to visit this magical city all year round because every season offers something different and precious. However, the best time of year to visit Venice, Italy is in the shoulder season including April, May and October when the weather is warm and the crowds are smaller. There is so much to see, do and taste that every visit you will fall in love with the city all over again.

As well as being famous for its traditional cicchetti snacks, Venice is also home to some wonderful waterside restaurants. We highly recommend that you make restaurant reservations in advance of your trip. Therefore, if you are looking to reserve Michelin star restaurants, we advise you do this as soon as possible as some may even take reservations more than one year in advance.

Whether you are looking for a romantic gateway or a week long holiday there is something for every vacation. Whatever your travel style we will help you find that perfect getaway in The Floating City.
