Full description
Meet your guide in St. Mark's square for a brief  historical introduction of the most powerful maritime empire of the Mediterranean Sea. The Doge's Palace, the Basilica and the square are highlights that must be visited for their beauty and historical importance by anyone who comes to Venice.

From here walk passing by San Moisè church to reach the world famous Teatro La Fenice. The theater, totally restored, except the external walls, still has the charm and elegance of ancient times, when nobles and courtesans enjoyed classical music and operas here. Continue to Campo Manin with the impressive statue of the last Doge, Daniele Manin.

Continue along a very tiny street, reach Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo, with its external original marbled staircase. A real architectural gem characterized by a mix of different styles (Renaissance, Gothic and Byzantine). The staircase is called 'del Bovolo' (snail shell) for obvious reasons. Continue the tour through Campo San Luca, where a flag pole indicates the geographical center of Venice, the small Ponte del Ovo and Campo San Salvador before getting to Rialto bridge, where the tour ends letting you enjoy the area with typical bars, local shops and good restaurants. At the end of the walking tour enjoy a 30 minute gondola ride through the enchanting maze of canals.
