Venice: Half-Day Best of Venice Walking Tour
- Discover the highlights and hidden gems of Venice in half a day
- Get adventurous and hop on the Traghetto boat like a local
- Listen to intriguing stories written in the city’s streets and canals
Then, head over to the Bridge of Sighs that connects the palace to the Prigioni, the historic former prisons for Venice’s top criminals. Stroll through the streets of San Marco and marvel at the baroque church of Santa Maria de Giglio. A little surprise waits by the waterside where you'll cross the Grand Canal in a Traghetto (gondola) like a real Venetian.
Next is the San Polo district on the left bank offering a picturesque Venice with its narrow alleys, little canals, and colorful houses. Arrive at the bustling Rialto Bridge to take an iconic photo, and follow the steps down the other side to the Rialto market filled with the freshest local fruit and seafood.
Finish your tour in the less touristic, but very authentic Cannaregio, the Jewish Ghetto. Learn about the fascinating history behind the landmarks and narrow alleys of the Ghetto. Take a coffee break in the peaceful neighborhood of Campo and then board your Traghetto like a local one last time before the tour ends.
