Experience the jewel of Venice as you stroll across the Rialto bridge, the most famous bridge spanning the Grand Canal. Discover the neighbourhood of Rialto, which became the banking centre of Venice, and the inspiration for Shakespeare's play, 'The Merchant of Venice'. Explore a bustling fish market, the heart of day to day life in the city, whilst learning about Venice's role in the medieval spice trade that spanned from Europe to South East Asia.
This is a private live virtual tour. Our professional, local guide will be showing you Venice’s most fascinating sights in real time, directly from the streets of Venice. You will be connected via video call and you can then explore the city together. With your experienced guide you will see more than just the Venice of today, you’ll also get a glimpse back in time because each tour is complemented with an excellent selection of multimedia. You will be shown historic photographs and videos to help with explanations, stories and the historical context of Venice's incredible and turbulent past. You can’t get any closer to history without a time machine!
The entire tour is designed to be as interactive as you desire. You can ask questions, you can request to go back and look at something again, you have all the freedom and participation of a private walking tour, all from the comfort of your own home.
The video calling software used for the tour is called Zoom. You will need to have it downloaded on your laptop, tablet or cellphone – with a connection to speakers or headphones – in order to participate in the tour. Also, remember to keep an eye on the time difference when choosing a time for your private virtual experience, as all times stated are in Venice time!
We begin the tour with a stunning view of the Grand Canal. Your local guide will introduce you to the beauty of Venice by first showing you the Ca’ d’Oro, one of the oldest palaces on the island.
Visit the Pescaria, where every morning, for over 700 years, Venetian fishmongers have been selling fresh fish, a staple in local cuisine.
Learn about Venice's most well known icon, the Gondola. But it's not just for tourists, the gondola is also a form of public transport in this incredible city.
Explore the Erbaria market, where spices, herbs and flowers have been sold for centuries.
Admire the San Giacometto Church, traditionally considered the oldest church in the city, as well as the San Giacometto Campo, the so-called 'Wall Street' of Venice.
