Other info about my tours

Tours in Venice are usually walking tours (this means if you have difficulty in walking over many bridges we can decide to visit museums with lift or alternative boat tours).

Times of tours

Tours in Venice usually last approx. 2 hours, however also 3 or 4 hour tours are possible. Tours begin at 9:00 am (in summer even at 08:30) or 11:00 am in the morning or at 2:00 or 3:00 or 4:00 pm.

churches / museums

On Sunday mornings churches are closed to visitors. In the summer months churches usually are open from 2:00 pm till 6:00 pm. Museums open at 9 and close at 6.00/7:00 pm; in the winter months at 5:00 pm.

Starting point / 1

My private tours start from the lobby of your hotel, when it is centrally located. Or we can decide another meeting point at your convenience, depending also on our tour.

Starting point / 2

We can meet directly in St. Mark’s square between the 2 high granite columns with the winged lion and St. Theodor near the waterfront or in front of the Rialto bridge on the Grand Canal.
