Want to learn more about the history of Venice and get off the beaten path with the locals? Join us on our historic walks to see the city through our eyes! We'll take you to Dorsoduro, one of the most beautiful and authentic areas of Venice. This is where we live, hang out with friends and take walks on the weekends. Jump in and take a walk through the quiet neighborhoods and backstreets of Dorsoduro to explore its historic spots, its gondola boatyards, and learn more about the place. We'll talk about how Venice was built, its architecture and urbanist aspects, its artistic and cultural heritage, as well as how Venice has changed over time and how it lives today. You’ll get familiar with such words as squero and palazzo, as well as with other things to help you get a better insight into the city, the way it thinks and its identity. We love our city, its history and traditions, and we’d fancy sharing this passion with you! Let us discover and preserve Venice together! NB: It's a small group walk with a maximum of 6 people. The program does not include visits to museums, churches, palaces. Food and drink not included.
