Full description
Get ready for a great overview of Venice. Travel into the history of one of world's most beautiful cities. On this tour led by an expert guide, you will discover the most beautiful and famous monuments of Venice, along with exploring some uncommon paths as well. You will, for example, experience the incomparable beauty of St. Mark's Square, learn more about the Republic of Venice and how it became dominant in the past, and explore the history of the city. Did you know that Venice was originally built on a group of 117 small islands that were separated by canals? Stroll the elegant area surrounding the Rialto Bridge, learn how it was a busy crossing point in commercial life, always crawling with local and foreign merchants. The Rialto is still the pulsing center of shops and commercial life in Venice, as well as home to the picturesque food and fish market of the city. Prepare to take amazing pictures of the central sestiere (district), with beautiful squares and crumbling mansions, along with ancient churches, ateliers, and bridges.
