Our overall experience was very positive. The booking process was excellent. Everyone at Nancy Aiello tours was extremely responsive to all of our questions (even those unrelated to the tours!). The tours were excellent as well. Samuel did a great job with our tour in Venice. Filippo, who led our tours in Rome, was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable, organized and gracious – and he did a tremendous job of engaging our boys in the tours. He enhanced our experiences in Rome beyond description. I would absolutely recommend Nancy Aiello Tours to our family and friends.
Private Guided Hidden Venice Walking Tour & Gondola Ride
Venice is one of our most popular destinations in Italy. In fact, it attracts over 20 million visitors each year and its crowds can be hard to avoid. If you are interested in exploring the untouched and true beauty of Venice away from the crowds then this is the perfect tour to beat them.
At Nancy Aiello Tours, we are obsessed with creating off the beaten path tours that get beyond the typical tourist filled options. We spent many hours traversing the city, selecting the best alleyways and paths that lead to hidden jewels to give you a real insight into our Venice.
With this carefully planned itinerary, you will discover the authentic side of Venice lesser known to tourists at relaxed pace. Sure, you will see the city highlights and learn the side-stories behind the famous sights. But you will also go beyond the scenes away from the very crowded areas that visitors usually see.
Get a non-touristy view of the City of Water with the firsthand local knowledge of your personable guide. Stroll through uncrowned areas that most visitors do not get to see while your guide unlocks the unique history and current life of Venetians. As your local guide leads off the beaten path through the back canals and quaint bridges of Venice, you are bound to feel more like an insider than a tourist does.
Finally, explore the charm of Venice from the water with your pre-booked gondola. At the end of the walking tour, your guide will leave you in the trusted hands of a professional gondolier for a 30-minute private gondola ride through the city’s iconic canals.
This lovely introduction to our Venice will capture the hearts and minds of first-timers but also seasoned visitors who love getting off the beaten track in Italy.
