About the tour

Join Andrea for an unforgettable walk in one of the most iconic places in the world and see why Napoleon called it "the finest drawing room in Europe". St Mark's Square, or Piazza San Marco in Italian, is the most iconic square in Venice and also marks the stop on Andrea's tour "The Beauty and Mystery of Venice". The most famous buildings of the city are concentrated in this area: the Doge’s Palace, the Basilica of San Marco, the Tower Bell, and the Bridge of Sighs. If that's not enough for you, then we will also see Caffè Florian, the oldest Cafè in the world, discover the symbols of the Clock Tower, and learn the story of the two big columns in front of the lagoon!

Meet your local guide


Andrea might be one of Venice's most entertaining tour guides. Why do we say that? Well you don't have to look far to see him jamming out on his guitar singing songs in the Venetian dialect. He likes to think of his tours like a small show so make sure to have your drinks and snacks ready for your time with Andrea! Born and raised in Venice he's as Venetian as you can get and he loves sharing unique stories of his city.

Andrea has been guiding since Dec 2012

A friendly and knowledgeable guide, Andrea responded quickly to the people on the virtual tour and I found him interesting to listen to. Can’t wait for the Grand Canal next week.
