Experience the jewel of Venice as you stroll across the Rialto bridge, the most famous bridge spanning the Grand Canal. Discover the neighbourhood of Rialto, which became the banking centre of Venice, and the inspiration for Shakespeare's play, 'The Merchant of Venice'. Explore a bustling fish market, the heart of day to day life in the city, whilst learning about Venice's role in the medieval spice trade that spanned from Europe to South East Asia.

This was a wonderful tour of part of Venice and the Rialto bridge. Our tour guide is a Venice-native and was very passionate about telling us about the real place. The tour was live and interactive which is way different than watching a video. We saw the real life of the city at the moment where the fish market was being washed up in the afternoon or how the garbage collection actually works in the city. We learned a lot about the history and practical aspects and had a great glimpse of the grand canal of Venice!
The video was high quality, the audio was coming really clear and we were able to ask questions and really get a great tour!

Absolutely 5 Stars, from the booking process, the communication and accommodation to make a couple of changes to the scheduled time and date, to the actual day of the tour, the whole experience with Beeyonder was great. I booked for our family to join the tour (total 15 internet connections) to celebrate my Husband's 50th birthday, Eleana (our local guide) was delightful engaging and very organized managing the big group. The tour itself was beautiful and gave us a true feel for Venice. Definitely recommended

Highly recommend! We had the best tour with Ottavia and our group of five to celebrate Mother's Day. It was an incredibly informative, interesting, and well organized hour tour. Seeing the Rialto Bridge and the Grand Canal on a beautiful Sunday evening in Venice was breathtaking even through our screens. Ottavia is an extremely knowledgeable and engaging guide. The presentation - with the mix of live views of Venice, some maps and other materials, and Q&A - was a perfect format. Thank you!

That was so much fun! My team loved the interaction, the information and the amazing connection! They are already talking about booking more experiences as a group and personally! Thank you again so much and maybe we can tour Venice in person soon!
