Introduction to Venice and Your Venetian Neighborhood
This tour is a wonderful introduction to Venice and complements well an in-depth historical tour by a licensed historic guide. The tour is completely customized for you, starting from your hotel and ending back there or at a fabulous lunch, dinner, or aperitivo spot. Andrea is a master at sharing the secrets of your neighborhood and bringing the culture of Venice to life. He will show you the hidden gems of your sestiere, like the precious local bookstores (even one with a boat inside!), historic bars and cafes with traditional classics or a focus on biodynamic foods and wines, jewel-like gardens, spots with the best views, and historically important locations dotting the labyrinth of calles away from the main touristic spots. Andrea is not a licensed historical guide, so for in depth historical explanations he will arrange for you a different tour with a historical guide. But if you want to dive into Venice like a true local, walk the back streets, and learn more about the people and culture that make Venice so special – including Venice’s fabulous food and wine – this tour is for you.
