Event Details


If your next trip to Venice is your first time, you'll be eager to get introduced to the city centre and experience its most famous attractions. Join then this walking tour including the world famous St. Markís church and St. Mark square where the main buildings of the city stand, and the Rialto bridge and market area, in addition to other great areas in the central district.

The piazzetta in St. Mark square

Our tour begins in the very heart of the city, San Marco square. Since its early days this broad open space has been the political, religious and civic centre of Venice where the present cathedral, the Ducal Palace, the National Library, and the tall bell tower still stand. We'll enter and visit the church of San Marco, renowned for its vast, gold mosaic surface decorating the entire ceiling and exuberant marble covering. This will be the perfect place to recount the brave beginning of Venice as a city-state and the major fact of its history.

Afterwards, leaving the square, we'll enter the city centre and discover the unique urban texture of Venice made up of narrow alleyways, waterways, and open spaces often enhanced by grand and imposing palaces. By viewing some of these weíll recall the life and style of noble Venetian families, including a description of the architectural style and building techniques. Moreover, during our walk, you'll see and understand what living in such an amazing city means as your guide tells you all about the main facts of Venice today a lively and active town, much more than just an 'open air museum'.

We'll continue our pleasant stroll crossing the main bridge of Venice and a landmark of its own, the Rialto bridge. From the top you'll enjoy the greatest view of the most central part of the Grand Canal, not just the main 'street' as it is often called in most guidebooks but the true living artery of this city. And finally we end our tour entering the main Rialto market area, the so called 'Wall Street' of Europe during the Middle Ages and now the main fruit, vegetable and fish market in the weekday mornings, a picture of the lively stands is a must.
