Sites you’ll visit

  • Rialto District
  • Piazza San Marco
  • Palazzo Ducale
  • Piazza San Marco represents the very heart of Venice, where to be amazed by different historical architectonical monuments like the Basilica, named after San Marco as well, or the Renaissance buildings along the long sides of the square. But there is something more: did you know that walking in Piazza San Marco actually means to be walking the only square of Venice? The square is always beautiful, also when it is flooded by the water of the lagoon: an unusual and impressive experience for locals and tourists.
  • Located in Saint Mark's Square, right next to the famous Basilica is the Dukes Palace. First inhabited in 1340 by the most powerful of the the Venetian Republic (A republic that staggeringly ran from 697AD to 1797AD) only became a visitable museum in 1923. A highlight of the building is the "Bridge of Sighs" a walkway between buildings that led to the Prison of the Venetian Republic and notable of Casanova.

Tour description

Venice is universally considered the most beautiful city in the world, thanks to its unusual urban design and its inestimable artistic heritage that has it included in the heritage of humanity projects protected by UNESCO.


Enjoy a panoramic walking tour with your knowledgeable licensed guide and explore the area between Piazza San Marco Rialto Bridge, including their labyrinth of little canals and sites of interest, including entrance to the Palazzo Ducale. You will be enchanted by the glorious tales of the “Serenissima Republic” along with the imagery of the most important Venetian artists, Bellini, Titian, Veronese, and Tiepolo.


This is the perfect tour for those who come to Venice for the first time: learn about the winged lion, the story of St Mark being brought to Venice from Egypt, his “golden church”, and then Theodore, killing a dragon, and, of course, when, how and why the Venetians have built a city on hundreds of thousands of wooden poles stuck in the mud of its lagoon. You will visit St Mark’s square and end at the Rialto bridge on the Grand Canal. By the end of the tour, you will understand the everyday life in the city, its problems, what it's like to live in such a city, especially when “high water” strikes, you'll learn how people protect the city and the lagoon.
