Venice Secret Gardens

From 330,00 

Venice Secret Gardens are more than five hundred, hidden behind the façades of beautiful palaces or surrounded by high walls. Yet this natural heritage of the city is almost completely unknown to most visitors, and even to a certain number of locals. A very different way to see Venice.

Discover some of the five hundreds Venice Secret Gardens with Venice Guide and Boat!

Venice Secret Gardens come as a surprise! If you walk through the narrow alleys of Venice, in fact, it seems like it is a very densely built-up urban centre. While exploring some of the hidden gardens of Venice, you’ll learn how  Venetians  created beautiful gardens in such a peculiar environment.

First of all, you’ll visit the garden of an old Renaissance aristocratic palace. Palazzo Contarini dal Zaffo is located away from the touristy areas, in a peaceful corner of Venice. The garden was once the enclosed retreat of “excellent spirits”,  like the famous painter Titian and  the poet Pietro Aretino.

Venice Secret Gardens tour will take you then to see a suggestive Romantic garden. Created by a man of great culture, and expert of botanical sciences, it was recently restored according to the original project. After the visit to the garden you will enjoy a coffee or a drink with fresh pastry.

Another garden included in the tour is today a peaceful park, located in the most western part of Venice. Here  many old stones remain hidden from the view,  due to a number of different species of trees.

This tour can be customized upon request, to include different gardens. Please contact us for the different options available.
