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.

We absolutely loved our guided tour with René! If you want to discover Venice’s history and architecture beyond the well known tourist attractions, René is the perfect guide for you. He is very knowledgeable in both Venetian history as well as current events and took a lot of time answering every question and tailor his tour to the groups individual interests.
Die Tour war super um etwas über die Geschichte und Entstehung von Venedig zu erfahren! René hat ein sehr großes Wissen über Geschichte und hat uns viele Details und Kleinigkeiten erklärt, an denen man sonnst achtlos vorbei gelaufen wäre! Ich hab die tour an meinem ersten Tag gemacht U danach geht man mit einem ganz anderen Blick durch die Gassen ?! Abgerundet haben wir die Tour spontan mit einem aperol spritz in einer schönen, lokalen Bar mit lokalen preisen?
Rene was a great guide….took us through the history of venice….and was particularly passionate about society through the ages…..would recommend
