Walking App for Venice

I posted this wrong. My apologies. New to this.
I need some suggestions on a good walking app for Venice. I've been there before-5 times and never bothered. This time I'm spending 2 weeks to get to know as much as I can about Venice!

Thanks for suggestions!

One resource is the free Rick Steves Audio Europe app. There are lots of free walking tours on that app that you can download. For Venice, there are 4 separate audio tours, including Grand Canal and St Marks Square. I’ve used his audio tours for the Frari Church and San Marco Basilica and thought they were very well done.

I wrote a long response on your other thread. Now that I see you will be there for 2 weeks (lucky you) I will reinforce my suggestion to get a good map and combine that with whatever app you choose. It is the best way to learn your way around Venice like a local.

I recommended booking a visit to the rooftop terrace of the Fondaco dei Tedeschi, and provided a link. Do that ASAP,

I will also recommend the Saturday tour of Ca’Foscari, the university headquarters. A nice free 40 minute tour with a student guide is offered on Saturday mornings at 10 am, 10:40, and 11:20. We went yesterday and really enjoyed it.

You do not need to book; just go into the courtyard and look for the little tour desk the guides set up there.
