Take a guided tour around the beautiful city of Venice, also popularly known as the "City of Water", "City of Bridges", "The Floating City", and the "City of Masks". Take the path less taken by most tourists as you explore the city's lesser known yet more romantic side. Walk across the corridors frequented by Casanova during his romantic conquests, the streets where famous Hollywood movies where shot in, and so much more!

Follow your knowledgeable English-speaking guide through the streets and piazzas of the city. Hear stories about some of the most historic places around the area such as the Ca'Dario, a popular haunted palace whose owners have continuously died in suspicious deaths. On your visit to the Fondamenta degli Incurabili Hospital, learn how street orphans were taken in and trained by monks to become nurses and world-famous musicians.

Visit the Redentore Church where your guide will educate you about the lively festivals that took place from there until the Piazza San Marco. Trace the steps of both the famous and infamous historical people of Venice. See Harry's Bar across the Grand Canal where the famous writer, Ernest Hemingway used to frequent after a whole day of writing. See the home of Peggy Guggenheim, the heiress who built one of the world's most interesting art collections. Be amazed by the interesting architecture of Desdemona's home where she lived before her story was told.

This tour will end with an unguided, relaxing gondola ride across the back canals of Venice. Six people may ride in each gondola.
