Summary


This tour combination is the right one for those who crave a full immersion into Venice and its everlasting symbols. A tour not only to see Venice, but to experience this City through its history and glorious past, still shining in its historical sites and legendary characters. A walking tour, to explore the hidden corners of the city and to learn interesting facts about life in a water city and the past of Venice. The Doge’s Palace, Venice’s symbol and architectural masterpiece. The Basilica: One of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world

What You Can Expect


Our combo will start with a beautiful walking tour which will take us among the most hidden and peaceful corners of Venice. An unforgettable tour to discover Venice through its narrow alleys called “calli”, countless bridges and wide traditional and picturesque squares, still the heart of Venetian people’s social life. We will discover the famous sites as well as hidden gems mixed with interesting facts about the city of the Serenissima and its everlasting history. The first highlight of the walking tour is St. Mark’s square, with the description of the majestic St. Mark’s Basilica, the elegant Doge’s Palace, the Clock Tower and the Procuratie (only external, for now). From St. Mark’s square we will move forward to Campo Santa Maria Formosa, where we will admire the SS. Giovanni e Paolo church with the famous Pantheon. Follow the Scuola Grande di San Marco also knowns as “Great School of Charity” (the Captains of Fortune). Last but not least, head back to St. Mark’s and admire the Malibran Theatre, step through the famous Mercerie, once the pulsing heart of commercial life back in time, nowadays Venice’s main shopping district between Rialto Bridge and St Mark’s Square. Please note that this first part of the tour will completely take place outside and it does not include any admittance to local sites. Follows a visit to one of the most famous symbols of Venice: The Doge’s Palace. The Doge’s Palace is one of the most important symbols of Venice. For centuries, it has represented the seat of the Venetian political power. In its majestic rooms, the Duke and his Council ruled the fate of the Most Serene Republic for centuries, surrounded by hundreds of art masterpieces. Today, the symbol of Venice and its power is still standing in all its beauty and majesty, everyday taking travelers’ breath away. Ticket allows entering without waiting in line. Audio-receiver device included. Another undisputed symbol of Venice is the St Mark Basilica, a beautiful example of Byzantine architecture where Eastern and Western architecture run into each other. Here, we will learn more about the everlasting history of Venice, about St Mark and how his ruins came to rest and be shielded here. Surrounded by the Basilica’s beautiful gold mosaics and marble inlays, our professional guide will take us along the history and the special features of this unique masterpiece. Among the priceless treasures shielded in the Basilica, we will have the chance to admire the Pala d’ Oro, a fine example of Byzantine art with its thousands of gems and precious stones and, of course, the golden mosaics.
