Full description
Discover the real soul of Venice admiring one of the most famous squares in the world: San Marco. Your guide will narrate the endless history of the monuments at the Doge’s Palace, where the Doge and the highest politicians lived and decided the faith of the ancient republic. Be stunned in front of the Basilica and listen to the reason why it is known as the Golden Church. 

Go through the labyrinth of Calli and Campi, the narrow Venetian streets and squares. Find some hidden artistic jewels as Santa Maria Formosa Square or the imposing SS. Giovanni and Paolo Church with a spectacular façade, which is known as the Pantheon of Venice. See the Malibran Theatre, which was the house of the legendary Marco Polo. 

Climb to the Rialto Bridge, the symbol of the city, to see the traditional markets. These were once the center of the commercial market of Europe. Take the opportunity to visit a Glass Factory close to Saint Mark’s Square, where you can see a Glass Craftsman at work. This is a free of charge option for approximately 20 minutes.
