What to expect
See the best of Venice from a unique perspective on this 3-hour private tour of the city. A perfect overview with highlights of the Serenissima, hidden gems, ancient legends and a local treat.
You will enjoy beautiful views of what is the oldest and undoubtedly the most famous bridge in Venice, The Rialto Bridge. The oldest of the bridges that cross the Grand Canal of Venice has collapsed twice and has a structure similar to that of its predecessors, two inclined ramps joined by a portico in the middle.
Crossing the Rialto Bridge you will reach the Rialto Market, the heart of the city. One of the great charms of the Rialto Market is the great colorful stalls where you can buy fresh fruit, vegetables, fish, seafood, etc.. This picturesque place has been chosen by the Venetians to trade, sell and carry out commercial activities since the 11th century.
You will pass by the home of Marco Polo and hear from your guide the stories of his explorations and travels.
You will behold a masterpiece of the Gothic style, the Doge's Palace of Venice . Located in St. Mark's Square, this palace began as a fortified castle in the 9th century, but after a fire, it was rebuilt as a fortress and prison. Also known as the Duke's Palace, this historic Italian building combines Byzantine, Gothic and Renaissance architectural elements.
You will admire the Church of San Francesco della Vigna, a religious temple of Tuscan style very marked and the impressive Church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli . You can contemplate this jewel of the Venetian Renaissance that remains intact since its construction. Its false columns on the walls and its semicircular top make this Catholic church one of the most precious attractions in Venice.
Marvel at the largest church in Venice, the Basilica of St. John and St. Paul . This huge brick building in Italian Gothic style is the main church of the Dominicans in Venice, built for preaching to large congregations. You will discover its hidden gems with the help of an expert local guide and enjoy a delicious local wine .
