Get an animated description of majestic St. Mark’s Basilica in Piazza San Marco, and learn the function of the Doge's Palace. Hear about the ornate St. Mark's Clocktower and the 3 connected buildings of the Procuratie. Then, make your way to the Campo Santa Maria Formosa to see the Basilica di San Giovanni e Paolo, where all of the city's doges were buried after the 15th century.

Excellent guide, very clear explanations, about the streets and how to guide yourself by looking at the indications, it was very useful for the rest of the trip. The communication with the headphones allowed those of us who wanted photos to stay a little behind without losing detail of the information.

Very interesting visit focusing on life in Venice, around the St-Marc district, with a dynamic and friendly guide, speaking very good French, knowing her subject perfectly and eager to draw the attention of tourists to the particularities that characterize the city and the life of the Venetians, in particular on the management of high tides, the architecture, the maintenance and the renovation of the buildings, the problems which the city must face, etc… We were 6 people for the visit in French this morning of September 25. To recommend.

We really enjoyed the 1 1/2 hour walking tour around Venice. Our guide was easy to understand (English speaking) and we saw and learned about places and architecture that we would have missed on our own. The starting point was St. Mark's Square so we hit all the highlights and more. Would definitely recommend.
