Affordable Tours of Venice: Working to a budget

You can have a fun-filled visit to Venice without breaking the bank, and this includes a few affordable walking tours. Here’s our helpful list of affordable tours of Venice for anyone working to a budget!

Venice’s stunning architecture, fascinating history, and enchanting scenery make it one of the most popular tourism hotspots in the World. But it’s popularity also drives up prices, making it a little more expensive than many other European city breaks. However, if you travel smart and plan ahead, you can have a fun-filled visit to Venice without breaking the bank, and this includes a few affordable walking tours. Here’s our helpful list of affordable tours of Venice for anyone working to a budget!

Walking Tour of Venice

If you’re on a budget and want to familiarise yourself with as much of Venice’s history and culture as possible, then our Walking Tour of Venice is a great option. For just €25, you can take a guided tour around St. Mark’s Square, learning about St. Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace. Then you’ll be taken to the Castello district of the city, which is a lot less busy. Here, you’ll learn some of Venice’s lesser-known stories and walk down beautiful streets you might not have found on your own. This tour lasts for 90 minutes, so you get plenty for your money.

Walking is one of the best ways to see the sights in Venice

Ghosts and Legends Tour

If you’d rather explore St. Mark’s Square yourself and save your tour budget for a more niche experience, then our Ghosts and Legends tour might be exactly what you’re looking for. This only costs €26 and it takes you on a 105-minute evening tour through Venice’s hidden backstreets and atmospheric squares, while you hear tales of the city’s murders, mysteries, and supernatural legends. As this tour is in the evening, it avoids most of the biggest crowds and it is significantly cheaper than most other evening events you’ll find in Venice.

Classic Gondola Ride

For many visiting Venice for the first time, a gondola ride along the city’s tranquil canals is on the top of the to-do list. Our classic gondola ride is reasonably priced, at just €32. This is a little more expensive than the other tours on this list, but it’s still very good value as all Venetian gondola rides are a little pricier than the walking tours. This tour sets off from San Moise Square and takes you on a relaxing tour of Venice as you sit back and take in the sights.

The Venetian Lagoon Tour

Perhaps the best value for money out of all of our tours is our Three Islands Boat Tour of the Venetian Lagoon. This tour only costs €20 and it lasts for 4 hours 30 minutes. The tour is by boat and it takes you to three of Venice Lagoon’s most famous islands: Murano, Burano, and Torcello. All three islands have their own unique identities. Murano is famous for its sublime glass working and you will visit a glassmaking factory on the tour. Burano is famous for its brightly coloured houses, which took their colours from fishermen’s boats surrounding the island. Torcello is sometimes referred to as ‘Mother of Venice’ and it has some incredible architecture, including the stunning Church of Santa Maria Assunta, which you’ll visit on the tour. It’s difficult to imagine more excitement or content in a tour with such a reasonable price tag.
