What you'll do

Explore this famed floating city but uncover its secret side. Draw behind the obvious tourist ticks and get to grips with the craftsmanship which Venice is so renowned for, from a famous textile factory, Tessiture Bevilacqua, concealing a thousand years of trade secrets to the church of San Pantalon, a hidden gem boasting the world's largest oil canvas painting. Explore an area that no tourist usually sees, the place the Venetians call home and escape the crowds - the magnificent San Francesco della Vigna area awaits and offers a normal view into everyday life here. And when your feet become a little tired, perhaps it's time for a quick aperitivo before you continue to secret sunset spots and learn about the local legends of Campo dei Mori.

Where you'll go

Follow your local guide down tucked away cobbled streets, concealing some of Venice's most-loved buildings. You could get your art fix by visiting a contemporary art space fronted as an amazing villa. From here explore an all-marble church and true hidden gem - Chiesa di S.Maria dei Miracoli, before making your way to a hidden monastery in San Francesco della Vigna area where the locals come to escape the crowds. Continue on towards Ramo Dragan, a completely unknown pier with amazing views over the Rialto bridge and local market, before making your way to the Ghetto area. Here you’ll end up in the early 19th-century neighborhood of Tre Archi and onwards to one of Venice’s local secret sunset spots. Almost too good to share.
