Are you looking for a guide in Venice Allowing you to learn more about a must-see in Venice or take a tour with a French-speaking local in Venice? Do you want to take a guided tour of Venice? A guided visit to the Doge's Palace? This article is made for you!








On my last visit to Venice, I wanted to visit some must-see places, but mostly to taste REAL life in Venice; So I decided to use guides, but not just anyone; locals, francophones, passionate and friendly (we can't know that in advance, but I can confirm it!).


These are my tips for French speaking guided tours in Venice.

1) Guided tour in Venice - Discovery of its emblematic places

Here is a more classic formula, for those who do not want to miss especially the emblematic monuments of Venice.

It is with Geraldine that I know you. An architect by training, she has an eye for you to discover all the rough edges of a monument. You will never see the buildings of a city in the same way again, believe me!

Like all the guides presented here, she is passionate and therefore exciting, it is a real pleasure to learn new things with her.

In the program: a walk from 1h30 to 2h00 through the narrow and discreet streets that cross the high places of the city. To book your guided tour with Géraldine,.

2) Guided tour of the Venice of the Venetians with a guide

Muriel, guide in Venice, has lived in Venice for 23 years, it's as if she was born there! Muriel is very attached to Venice, to heritage, to local life.


Training Nature Guide, for him it is important to preserve this precious (even delicate) environment, so the number of participants for a visit is limited to 6 people.



During the 2 hours of visits, Muriel will clearly get you off the beaten track. Mass tourism: very little for her. Thanks to this amazing visit, I was able to see a new facet of the archipelago, which amazed me even more!


To reserve, or to take note of any other logistical information, it is here.

3) Guided visit to the Doge's Palace

The unmissable Doge's Palace, located in San Marcos Square, is waiting for you. It is unthinkable to come to visit Venice without stopping there. Naturally curious, I need to know the anecdotes and secrets of a place to be interested in them and remember them.

Véronique, Rossana and Luisa know the city very well, but above all the Ducal Palace like the back of their hand; And believe me, with the many secret passages and hidden rooms, it is important to save as many steps as possible, if you want to enjoy the Italian nights!

If you had planned to visit the Doge's Palace, I let you contact them here, you will also find all the practical details there.

You will also find group guided tours on this site, check that the guides speak bi on the other hand!


4) French speaking tour in Venice to visit the islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello by boat.

Do you know the three islands? Murano, Burano and Torcello, from the Venetian lagoon? Geraldine invites you to embark with her, to escape the grand tourism!

The objective is to meet lesser known artisans. For example, in Murano, you will discover how glass is worked. In Burano, your palate will thank you by trying the delicious buranelli cakes. Without forgetting the superb architectures of Torcello… And many more wonders!



Géraldine reveals the life of the locals, away from the crowds, where the sweetness of life reigns. I have very good memories of this visit.


For more information on boat trips from Venice, go here (boat, price, number of people, schedule, boarding ...), do not hesitate to contact the guides, they speak French and they will be happy to advise you!

You also have boat trips to visit the islands on this site, do not hesitate to look at the opinions, the language spoken ...

5) Guided tour of the Accademia Gallery, the Basilica of San Marcos, the Jewish Quarter (Barrio del Ghetto), the Barrio de Cannaregio

  • Minute info:

Venice is the capital of the Veneto region in northern Italy. It occupies more than a hundred small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. The city is crossed by 177 canals (of which the most important is the Grand Canal) and 455 bridges, which makes it original.

On the other hand, Venice is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

6) guide in Venice - Wine and tapas experience

Federico is an official guide in Venice. He was born there, grew up there, loved there ... Anyway, a real one.

It offers very friendly guided tours: its concept is simple: spend part of the day together, go on an adventure through the Venetian streets, taste a good wine and some tapas. Anecdotes, a bit of history, all in a good mood, and here is a successful visit, in Federico's shoes (or almost)!

I recommend that you make the visit from the beginning of your stay, so that you can later apply their valuable tips (restaurants, bars, activities and other small addresses)!
