La Serenissima is a living museum and first-time visitors in particular are overwhelmed by its cultural offerings. When you’ve checked off the city’s classic sights, the best way to explore Venice is to get away from the crowds and lose yourself in the city’s back alleys. It’s a delight to seek out the immense treasures in palazzi, churches and museums that are off the beaten path. Those who do not want to keep their nose in a guidebook but want to understand the history and context of what they are seeing, should book one of our knowledgeable local guides who can bring the sights to life for everyone from kids to academics and art lovers. Indagare members can contact our Bookings Team to reserve.
