Our tour starts on Gran Canal, the city's main waterway which snakes its way past no less than 50 palaces, six churches, four bridges and two open-air markets. We will take to the water for a tour of all wonderful sights and we will even float by a gondola -making workshop. Back on the dry land, we will visit the Bovolo staircase whose spiral clings desperately to the walls of a building. We will stop by Marco Polo's house and hear about the Venetian son who went to sea one day and came back with stories of China and a world in the East that few had ever seen. We will see lively Campo San Luca and Campo San Giovanni Paolo where locals carry out their daily lives in the shadow of spectacular architecture. We will proceed to the outside visit of Goldoni Theatre, Venice's lesser known but hardly lesser loved opera house. Then we will make for Venice main square, Piazza San Marco and we will stop in San Marco Basilica. Your guide will take you inside pointing out mosaics of 11th century and beautiful art works. Then we will go up to the second floor for a closer look at the sparkling golden mosaics and for the spectacular view bustling Piazza San Marco below. Your tour will end at the famous Rialto Bridge, an incredible marble structure that cost Venice a small fortune to build but was certainly worth every penny.
