Full description
Enjoy a relaxing afternoon stroll through Venice and see some of the city’s most beautiful sights. Meander for 90 minutes through the historical heart of Venice, starting at the striking centerpiece of St. Mark’s Square. In the company of an expert guide, you will get the chance to see the beautiful Fenice Theatre. Destroyed in 1996 by a devastating fire, the theater was reconstructed in 2003 and bears the motto “The Way it Was, Where it Was.”

Continue to the Calle della Vida, where you will see the Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo, a superb example of Gothic architecture that dates from 1499. The building is unique for its variety of stunning arcades, and its parapet, which includes small columns following the prominent line of its staircase. Not easily found on your own, it is located inside the interior of a small courtyard close to the Campo Manin, where you will have the chance to explore with your guide.

Conclude with a visit to the Rialto Bridge over the Grand Canal. Constructed between 1588 and 1591 by Antonio da Ponte, the Rialto Bridge is a superb example of Venetian engineering. Marvel at the beauty of the canals of Venice, and see the magnificent architecture of the watery city.

Muy informativo!

Hicimos este tour el primer dia cuando llegamos a Venecia. Eramos unas 20 personas y nuestra guía Gladis nos guió por la ciudad entre la PLaza de San Marcos y el puente Rialto viendo campos, callejuelas y los diferentes edicificios y casa con otros ojos. Lo recomiendo para los primeros días, ya que se aprende a ver Venecia desde otro punto de vista. Se escucha a la guía a través de un audio en el oido, y hay que acostumbrarse un poco.

Many, many facts .......

After the tour 30 started later than planned, there were a lot of years ... Overall, the tour was too brittle for our taste and overloaded with a lot of detailed information.

Did not bother having had a load of rubbish the previous day from the same guide. Got bored with her shopping habits. I love Italy, we love Italy but Venice was a toilet.
