Self-Guided Walking Tours to Explore Venice, Italy

Welcome to Venice – the enchanted city built on water, where gondoliers sing into the night and priceless artwork can be found in marbled galleries. If you are visiting for the first time, our Introduction Walk and Piazza San Marco Walking Tour will take you to some of the most glorious sights. Make sure not to miss a stroll around the Jewish Ghetto, either, and save some time for two special itineraries centered on the famous Rialto Bridge & its exciting surroundings (Walk 1 + Walk 2). To gain a more complete understanding of painter Titian and the real-life Giacomo Casanova, follow Casanova's Venice and Titian's Paintings Walk, respectively.

In all, we have prepared 14 self-guided walks for you to explore Venice, which cover everything from the top landmarks along the Grand Canal to charming spots on nearby islands. Not only that, but you can also create your own walk with the attractions that interest you most and even set your hotel as the walk's starting point!

How it works: Download the app "GPSmyCity: Walks in 1K+ Cities" from Apple App Store or Google Play Store to your mobile phone or tablet. Each walk comes with a detailed tour map as well as photos and background information for the featured attractions. The app's navigation functions guide you from one attraction to the next. The app works offline, so no data plan is needed when traveling abroad.
