Event Details

 

THE INSIDERS' HEART OF VENICE
 
A walk into the central core of Venice
on the footsteps of past and present Venetians.
  
From St Mark's Square we walk in the old theater district, passing by the famous Gran Teatro la Fenice, the celebrated Opera House, newly rebuilt after the 1996 fire which greatly damaged it.
     
Then, in the steps of Antonio Vivaldi and Casanova into the Sant'Angelo
and San Samuele districts, once renowned for  theaters, music, and world famous
artists such as the inventor and textiles' designer Mariano Fortuny, Spanish by origin and, like many others, Venetian by adoption.
 
 
In our day, there is Alberto Valese's  art shop 'Ebru', with its magic paper-mache'
creations, based on an ancient Turkish technique, carries on the local tradition
of highly skilled craftmanship.
    
We'll use the popular "gondola shuttle" to cross the Grand Canal at San Toma', and explore the Sestier di San Polo (one of the six neighborhoods of Venice), passing by the house of Carlo Goldoni, the greatest Venetian playwright, who based his witty comedies on everyday life in 18th century Venice, still successfully staged today.
 
 
By the Rialto Market area, we
walk into the former
red light district  (prostitution was legalized here in 1358, but is illegal in the Italy of today ! 

The colorful food market area we pass through is enlivened by stylish wine bars and cafés lined along the Grand Canal where locals and foreigners linger over their prosecco. 
 
We finish the tour at the foot of the Rialto bridge... your guide will make sure you get back easily to St Mark's Square, only few minutes away, and will show you where to get the best gelato in town !
