Venice is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the world, as evidenced by the countless literary masterpieces that the city has inspired. For this reason, private tours to Venice are very popular, especially for those who want to experience the infectious, romantic atmosphere of the city. The Floating City, Venice is famous for being built on the water. In fact, no car can get into the city and the canals lead anywhere you want to go. Venice is made up of about 118 islands connected together with countless bridges and winding canals.
Private tours to Venice are much more enjoyable with at least a few hours spent riding the gondola. These little kayaks are spread all over the city and are definitely the best way to get around, especially if you want a unique view of the city through the waterways. However, walking tours of the centuries-old city streets are also very popular, especially for those who want to enjoy Venice’s rich collection of Gothic architecture dating back to the Byzantine and Ottoman times. Ca’d’Oro, Doge’s Palace, and Palazzo Cavalli-Franchetti are among the city’s must-see architectural marvels.
It’s no surprise that Venice surrounded by water is a huge seafood haven. If you want to try a different side of Italian cuisine, Venice is definitely a great place to sample delicious seafood. The city never runs out of fresh supplies of fish, shellfish, and other seafood favorites sourced from nearby lakes.
Private tours to Venice are also not complete without a visit to the island of Burano, one of the most famous fishing villages in the area, known for its floating houses that paint a rainbow-colored backdrop for your trip. Another interesting island to wander around is Lido or Golden Island, which is famous for its private beaches and golden sand dunes.
