Our Hidden Venice Tours allow you to see a side of Venice that most miss. You’ll explore empty churches at night, secret rooms hidden in plain sight, and the flavors of the city in the local neighborhoods where the real Venice is found.
These tours uncover the culture of the city. On our exclusive After-Hours Access: St. Marks Basilica Tour not only will you explore one of the most beautiful churches in the world with just your group, you’ll discover how St. Mark’s bones ended up here. On our Doge’s Palace: Prisons & Secret Itineraries Tour, you’ll get a glimpse of the power wielded by the dukes of Venice and their infamous Council of Ten while tourists wander unknowingly through the nearby art. Along the way, our guides will share the strange tales and secret stories with you.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Venice without exploring the canals on a gondola. Along with going deep into the maze of streets and piazzas away from the tourist center, we take all the hassle out of negotiating with the gondoliers on our Hidden Venice by Night: Walking Tour & Gondola Ride. All you have to do is sit back and float through the magical canals of the city. On our Wine & Cicchetti Tasting Tour through Venice’s Jewish Ghetto, we bring you to the world’s first Jewish quarter to sample local wines and the unique Venetian tapas. You cannot get anything more Venetian than hunting down these tiny morsels of succulent fast food in traditional bars called bacari.
Whatever you choose, don’t leave Venice without experiencing its real culture.
