Our exclusive small-group walking tour guided by a professional and expert history and cultural guide will give you a comprehensive and pleasant introduction to the art, the history, and the amazing local food & wine scene at once, in a fun, informative, and tasteful way like no other tour. After meeting your guide, you will start a pleasant walk through the enchanting and mysterious cobble-paved alleys, streets, and bridges (Calli, Ponti, Rughette) to reach the most beautiful sights admiring the sumptuous palaces and glimpses of eternity, as you discover the grandeur of St Mark’s Square, a showpiece which beautifully represents the splendor of Venice’s past, crowned by the Venetian-Byzantine domes of the grandiose St Mark’s Basilica. Then to the gothic architecture of the Doge’s Palace, once the seat of the government, Palace of Justice, and prison, as well as the home of the Doge and the hauntingly Bridge of Sigh. We’ll stop at local shops and the traditional “Cicchetti” to taste local products and refreshments and enjoyment of your soul and palate. A “grand finale” which combines the two souls of this tour and the city itself will be made at the unmissable, iconic Ponte di Rialto over the Grand Canale, where you will learn why the beautiful and daring structure was predicted to fall (while still standing after more than 400 years…) and then the tasty conclusion in a special very-local atmosphere enjoying Venetian Cicchetti and Italian Aperitivo. Make your Venetian experience even more complete with a half-hour Gondola Ride for romantic, special, and unexpected views of the city from its founding element, water.
Walking tour, Italian Aperitivo with appetizers, Food tastings with local products, Licensed English-speaking guide, 30 minutes gondola ride.
