Why this Event?

Art and Wine is the perfect combination a walking tour discovering the history and the food traditions of Venice.
Your local guide will introduce you to some of Venice’s best kept secrets and at the same time enjoy a stop at a traditional Venetian wine Bar “Bacaro” popular with thirsty locals.

Your experience begins with a visit to the Scala Contarini Del Bovolo, a breathtaking Follie, we make our way up the staircase to enjoy its spectacular views over the roof tops of Venice great for taking photos or selfies. We then make our way through Venice’s maze of narrow alleyways towards the Ospedaletto complex which is in the residential area of San Giovanni and Paolo.

This was so much easier than having to find parking and navigate the memorials on our own. We had plenty of time to leave the bus and explore the memorials up close.

Awesome tour. Our tour guide Al was very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure that were able to really enjoy the memorials. There are so many tour bus options, I'm happy that I chose Gray Line Tours!

My daughter and I went on the memorial/monument tour. Big Al was our tour guide and did an awesome job! We went to DC for a week and this was our favorite tour! We got to see so much in such a short amount of time! Would recommend and would do it again!

Tour was cancelled. Given vouchers to Big Bus Tour. Their bus broke down and we walked most of the tour. Not what I was expecting.
