At Home in Venice Tour
Live Like a Local With This Off-The-Beaten-Path Tour



Discover the least known and most intimately “Venetian” part of town, and explore a charming residential area off the beaten track. Compare the bustling morning atmosphere with loud fishmongers, all kinds of deliveries, congested alleyways in the backstreets of Santa Croce. 

Stop by the newly opened shops selling items like modern design jewelry, handmade masks, manufactured purses, unique ceramic pieces, hand-blown glass objects, and bijoux. Do not forget to stop by the gelato parlors and sample their variety of seasonal flavors! 


With an expert English-speaking guide, you will visit one of these shops as per the availability of the artisans. Walk through narrow alleyways parallel or perpendicular to the Grand Canal, with unexpected views of hidden gardens, old family crests, and private courtyards. 


The tour will end with a relaxing gourmet stop in a private apartment, for a tasting of local cheese and cold cuts served with a glass of Veneto Region wine. 


Venetian residents still exist, and it will be exciting to interact with them. Ask questions and improve your insider view of Venice!
