Would you like to share the cost of a walking tour through Walks Inside Venice? They come highly recommended,but the tours are costly for two. It looks like most of the walks are 210 euro,which can be split among as many as ten people.

We are most interested in the art and history walks,but would be open to others,too.(f)

A possible solution if you cannot find anyone to join you ... there is a delightful little book 'Venice For Pleasure' by J G Links which has been in print since its first publication in 1966. It features, among other things, 4 detailed walks around Venice.

I paste from amazon... Its simple object, in the author's own words, is to guide the reader to places he might otherwise miss and, having reached them, to tell him what he might wish to know and then leave him, preferably at a café, to admire, to enjoy, and perhaps be disappointed.
The illustrations show the visitor, as he confronts a view, what his predecessors of a hundred, two hundred or five hundred years ago saw from the same point. Two sections of colour plates have been added, showing how the beauty of Venice inspired the 18th century view painters.
The main part of the book describes four walks, each of which can be completed in one day, although there are points in each at which one can break off and return another day. Maps, old and new are provided for each walk. The introduction deals with the Piazza S. Marco and its neighbourhood, and appendices are devoted to the public boat services, food and drink and books about Venice. One chapter is entitled 'Venice for Children's Pleasure.
