Venice 101: Context walking tours

Untours has partnered with Context to provide you with the option to take scholar-led walking tours of Venice while on your Untour. Context is an in-depth alternative to traditional tours and embodies the same quest for authenticity in discovering a destination as we do here at Untours. They are a network of architects, historians, art historians, and specialists who organize over 300 different walks in 14 cities around the world.

Note: All Context walking tours must be booked directly with Context. Untours is not able to book these tours for you, and these tours are not included in the Untours package. We at Untours simply believe that Context provides a great walking tour and wanted to share this insider tip with you.

Note: Every Untour and Sampler includes one or more group activities; the events listed here are additional activities you may add to your Untour for a fee.

Context Venice Walking Tours

The key to exploring Venice is to break out of the main tourist thoroughfare that connects St. Mark’s Square with the Rialto Bridge. Investigate the maze of streets and canals in the outer neighborhoods. Or contemplate Venice’s relationship with the East, its republican form of government, or its intimacy with the sea. Tours include:
  • Annotated Dinner, an Evening of Venetian Cuisine
  • Architecture of Venice
  • Art and Society in Historic Venice
  • Cannaregio: The Neighborhood of Artists
  • Padua Market Walk
