Starting Destination Meeting Point / Stop

We meet under the arches, by the Clock Tower in St Mark's Square.
This tour will take you right to the heart of Venice, visiting the famous water city from two unique perspectives: first through a walking tour, which will take us among some of the most beautiful and hidden places surrounding St Mark's Square. Then, through a gondola ride which will make you marvel in front of the games of reflections and majestic facades dotting the channels. A unique way to discover Venice away from the crowded alleys and admiring it from the water. Our walk among the beauties of Venice will take you to discover some of its more famous sites as well as hidden gems. The main highlights are St. Mark’s square, St. Mark’s Basilica, the elegant Doge’s Palace, the Clock Tower and the Procuratie (only external). From St. Mark’s square we will move forward to Campo Santa Maria Formosa, where we will admire the SS. Giovanni e Paolo church with the famous Pantheon. Followed by the Scuola Grande di San Marco WI, knowns as “Great School of Charity”. Last but not least, we head back to St. Mark’s and admire the Malibran Theater, and the famous Mercerie, once being the pulsing heart of commercial life back in time, nowadays Venice’s main shopping district between Rialto Bridge and St Mark’s Square. The second part of the tour will let us literally slide into the deepest side of Venice, admiring it from a unique perspective: the water. Few people know that the gondola is one of the main symbols of Venice, as emblematic of the famous water city and as mysterious in its origins. Of course, the history of the gondola is deeply bounded to the one of Venice. Considered one of the most beautiful and elegant boats on Earth, it is built through unique techniques and that each part of it also has symbolic meanings. Not only elegance and beauty then, a whole world is embodied into this boat nowadays most known symbol of Venice. An enchanting and relaxing way to enjoy the colors, lights, sights, charm and beauty of Venice. We will admire elegant bank-side palaces, unique bridges. Let the local gondolier, with his distinctive blue and white striped shirt, bring us along the hidden channels of Venice.
