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 successufully 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 ! and go by the
majestic palaces of Isabella Teotochi Albrizzi and
Caterina Cornaro, two of the few female protagonists 
of the local Venetian history scene through the
centuries. 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.  
Now we cross the world famous Rialto bridge into the San Giovanni Grisostomo district, home of many silk merchants in the MIddle Ages, where Marco Polo and his family lived.  
We end our tour with a taste of the best gelato in town...your guide will make sure you get back easily to St Mark's square, only five minutes away.
