About the tour

Andrea will welcome you to Venice in front of one of the most iconic views of Venice and the Grand Canal. Not a bad way to start your Venetian visit! We'll leave our beautiful starting position to see if we can't uncover a few of the city's mysteries. On the list? We'll start with a secret door and hidden palace and move into the big leagues as we discover the enchanting tale behind a famous church and walk through the most dangerous historic street in the city. To top it off Andrea will finish in front of one of the most famous places in the world.

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
