Great walking tour of many areas of Venice
Barbara gave my friend and me a terrific tour that covered many areas of Venice, not just Rialto, San Polo, and I Frari. Because there were only two of us on the tour, it was tailored to us. Barbara knows Venice inside-out and was easily able to answer all our questions. Just to note: tour guides in Venice who provide outside tours are not permitted to provide inside tours. Therefore, this tour did not provide detailed information on the inside of i Frari. This is not a criticism of Barbara; it’s just how it apparently works here in Venice.

When to Get There

Venice is busiest during summer, especially when annual festivals are in full swing. Plan to visit early in the morning to avoid crowds, or visit between November and March when prices are lower and tourists are fewer. Seating at outdoor cafés fills early during the summer months, so grab a table in the early afternoon to make sure you have a spot for Italy’s celebrated happy hour (aperitivo).
