Private Half Day Walking Tour of Venice (4 hours)
San Marco and the Doge’s Palace, Rialto Bridge, walking through Sestriere San Marco, Dorsoduro, Santa Croce. The Frari Church
This visit is a must and will take you to the heart of Venetian institutions. For centuries, Saint Mark’s Square acted as the backdrop to the State’s main activities. A tour of the magisterial rooms at the Doge’s Palace, once the site of the Serenissima government, offers an insight into this efficient and fascinating political machine. Admire the paintings extolling the Myth of Venice, its conquests and diplomatic successes. Relive the pomp and ceremony of one of Europe’s most prestigious capitals. The Basilica of Saint Mark, now the City’s Cathedral, was once both the Ducal Chapel and a reflection of State magnificence. You’ll be dazzled by its golden mosaics and precious marble, the Pala d’Oro and famous horses, works of art that have turned the church into one of the most beautiful monuments in the world.
Walking through Sestriere San Marco, Dorsoduro, Santa Croce and San Polo: Their quarters were small-scale versions of the Doge’s Palace, lavishly decorated with artistic masterpieces. We will guide you through the wonderful Frari Church.
