VENICE FOR BEGINNERS - YOUR FIRST WALK IN TOWN 

 

ST MARK'S SQUARE, ST MARK'S BASILICA (with priority entrance), A WALK BACKSTAGE,

THE RIALTO BRIDGE. With a complete historical introduction to Venice.

This tour will start with St Mark's Square, the former political centre of the Venetian Republic, and will take you into St.Mark's Basilica, a 900 year old marvel of architecture, unique in Italy for its Byzantine and Medieval mosaics, its intricate stone and marble traceries and exuberant orientalizing domes

(Our guide will be armed with a special pass, so you will skip the line to get in !)

Our guide will describe all the famous architectures (the Doges' Palace, Sansovino Library, the Bridge of Sighs, the Bell Tower...) and will provide a good historical introduction to the city: its genesis, maximum expansion and decline, through the course of time,spanning from the 9th to the 19th century !

After that, away from the crowds, we take a walk "backstage" to discover the unique layout of the city: bridges, fancy private palaces, narrow alleyways, large and small squares, elaborate stone well heads

You'll learn how to get oriented in this maze like city, how it feels living in a place like this, and how today's administrators deal with the maintenance of this fragile heritage, facing year after year the risks of massive and unsustainable tourism!

We'll end our visit in the busy central area of Rialto, defined by historians "the Wall Street of Europe in the Middle Ages"to see the bridge - with a spectacular view on the Grand Canal - and its famous surroundings.
