If you are new to photography and long to take the same stunning photos you see in your Moments, then be sure not to miss Venice's "Photo Walk". Venice's unique scenery has attracted many licensed photographers, who in turn have opened their own studios. These studios offer 2 or 3 hour themed photography and photo shoot tours, during which you might also discover some interesting places only known to the locals.
The "Photo Walk" not only takes you to the most spectacular places for taking photos, but will also teach you photography techniques such as setting camera parameters and framing. If you want to look your best in your photos, you can also opt for a "private photo tour," the best choice for newlyweds, couples, or girlfriends.
Prices for the above two tours are almost the same, and, depending on the tour length, groups of 2-4 people may book in advance. The shared costs make the tour even more reasonably priced. Booking on the official website is also very convenient!
