VENICE TOURS - VENICE ITALY TOUR - GUIDED TOUR

Veinice Italy Guided ToursVenice Tours - In Venice, Italy there are many tours available for visitors. On a tour you will find out much about the different sites, the architecture, historical events and culture of Venice. It’s all in the guide books but being brought around the city, or through a particular museum or building, by an experienced guide will bring the history and events to life and make sure you notice all there is to see.

Since Venice is surrounded by water so you cannot drive through the city. The only way to get around is by boat or on foot. Unless you know your way around the city, it can be confusing with the myriad of winding laneways and a guided tour will be of great assistance, particularly if your stay in Venice is relatively short. You will be amazed at the things you’ll learn from your tour guide and you can ask them questions if you have any. The city offers various Guided Tours and we cover only a very few of them below.

Walking Tours of Venice are excellent in that the city is made for walking and every building, every single building, has a history and story of its own. So no matter how long or short your tour is, you’ll pass many, many amazing buildings. Like other things in Venice, tours are expensive and many of the walking tours work out around 25 euro a person.

There are many tours in the area and you can consult your travel agent or the visitors center for more information on them. Be specific on what you would like to see in the area and that way they can find a tour that is right for you. Or you can explore the links below.

Tour to Murano
This is a real tourist tour! Every hotel, inn, hostel, accommodation provider will arrange this tour for you and often at no charge. Murano is well known for its glass making and any tour will include a visit to a glass making factory. But it is interesting and also you get the boat trip aswell. Venetian glass has been famous the world over for many many years and it is fascinating to watch the ornate glass pieces being made by these professionals.

Tours to Venice Islands
Of course there are other islands worth visiting – Torcello famous as where the first settlers arrived, Burano, the home of Venetian lace making and it is a beautiful little island with coloured houses.

A Gondola Trip

It is so peaceful without the usual roar of traffic in the background and you do feel you’re in a different world.
