Full description
Experience this guided tour of the San Polo district in Venice, aimed for those who would like to discover some of the less touristic areas of the city, or rather the Rialto area, San Polo district and Frari Church.  The visit starts from Rialto bridge.  Once you cross it, you'll be surrounded by one of the most authentic and ancient Venetian areas: San Polo, the smallest district in Venice, and one of the oldest.

A guided tour of San Polo district, cannot exclude a visit to the Frari Basilica. Located in the square of the same name, it 's Venice’s largest church, erected by the Franciscan Monastic Convent Friars between the 12th-14th centuries, and then re-built in the 14th century in Gothic-Franciscan style. 

The church has three naves and seven apsidal chapels on a cross floor plan. In addition to the tombs of various figures linked to Venice, such as Claudio Monteverdi and Titian, who died in Venice during the 16th century plague, it houses numerous works of art of great value. In fact, you'll have the chance to admire unique masterpieces, such as Ca' Pesaro’s Madonna and Titian’s Assunta, Madonna with Child and Saints by Giovanni Bellini, St Mark and Saints by Bartolomeo Vivarini, and the Martyrdom of Santa Caterina d'Alessandria by Palma il Giovane.
