Live the venetian life for a day!
Explore different parts of Venice and live with me this incredible city. This is a great overview of the city that combines exploring the city by foot and jumping from in a vaporetto and also in a gondola traghetto. We will cover the main square Saint Mark, the Rialto area, the off beaten Sestrieri of Castello and the residential area. Using our day ticket we will also go to Murano and have a glass blowing demo too! A chance for a cicchetto and glass of wine, some shopping time and even the possibility to see some green areas in Venice. The all day will be a unique experience!
Starting with indroducing the city with a stroll of the hearth of the city, Saint Mark square, the Basilica, the bell tower and the Doge's Palace. Continuing to Rialto and a coffe stop before wandering around the fish and vegetable market.
We will stop for few chicchetti in some of the most popular bacari around Rialto market area. We will jump in the public boat for a ride to continue our visit from the water this time!
The Grand Canal, Castello, the Arsenale ( the ancient ship yeard), the lagoon and the green heart of Venice. We will walk down some off the beaten paths of the city where only the Venetians still live and where we can find still some of the local trades. From the Arsenale area to catch the vaporetto to go to Murano for a glass demonstration and some history of the Island! A coffe and back in Venice! Finishing with a prosecco and a cicchetto!

Elisabetta was masterful helping our group of six customize our tour based on sights we had seen the previous day and our group that had some with difficulty walking. Her ability to bring each stop alive with history and a visualization of its past made for a very special day and memories for a lifetime. Elisabetta was especially flexible when heavy fog forced a change in our boat travel and all-day itinerary. Simply wonderful!
