A private guided tour to discover Venice from two different points of view: water and land


Venice is a city made in the water and you couldn't understand completely its own double nature, if you don't discover it from the water!

In this tour you'll visit the most famous highlights of Venice- as Saint Mark square, the Saint Mark Basilica, the Doge's Palace, the bridge of sighs, campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo and Rialto- and then take relax from a water taxi, crossing charming canals.

Itinerary

Our tour will start in Saint Mark square, the heart of Venice. At the winged lion shadow we'll learn something about the history of the longest lived Republic in the history of the world.

After an exiting visit at the millenary church of Saint Mark (from April to October you'll skip the line), admiring the incredible golden mosaics, we'll start to discover the real Venice, crossing charming bridges, walking in dark narrow streets.

We'll see the famous bridge of sighs and you'll discover why it has this particular name; we'll go to the Castello district, visiting the nice "Campo Santa Maria Formosa", and its beautiful architectures.

Later we'll get to Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo, decorated with a bronze monument by Verrocchio (Leonardo da Vinci's teacher).
