Venice caught on her two natures


You wouldn't experience Venice as a whole if besides walking through its maze-like urban fabric, you don't get to navigate its waterways to grasp its unique water environment.
This tour then is meant then to introduce the city to you in a most complete way by both land and water.

The waterborne part of the tour, including parts of the Grand Canal, we'll give you the opportunity to experience the daily life of the city within its particular nature.
And letting you also taking the greatest pictures of the tour.

The walking part will include the world famous St. Mark's square and a visit of St. Mark's church indoors. Your guide will describe the main stories depicted on the mosaics, the tecnique of making these 'golden puzzles' and tell you why this is unique example of architecture and its historical backround.

And after a walk through the main central district we'll finally get in the Rialto market area, the perfect place to conclude the tour either for lunch or a rest leisure stop.

A Recent Review of this tour

Fantastic tour ... the boat portion of the grand canal is a must do ... and the walking portion with Fernando was an education in Venetian history. Highly recommend as a way to not only see Venice but to also understand the history and back story ... an his suggested restaurant for lunch at the end of the tour was terrific - one of our best meals.
