Private walking tours for small groups
Discover the lesser known history of Venice
Venice is steeped in history like few other places, and yet much pass unnoticed.
History Walks Venice will help you notice some of this.
A walk around Venice, exploring the many messages from Venice of yore, often hidden in plain view.
A guided visit to the island Lazzaretto Nuovo, where quarantine was invented to fight the Black Death.
A walk between shipyards, oar makers and model shops, looking at boats and talking about traditions.

È stata un’esperienza interessante per l’arricchimento personale della conoscenza di Venezia
Rene was very kind, organized everything well and you could really tell that he knows what he is talking about. Very fascinating to get more historic understanding and one of the reasons I will definitely come back for another visit. Since the tour I’ve seen the city with other eyes. 😉
Ottimo per chi desidera conoscere in maniere seria ed approfondita la storia di Venezia con sguardo attento ai piccoli dettagli e alle curiosità.
