Private 2-Hour Walking Tour of Venice

Sightseeing

A private guide will be at your disposal for four hours to allow you to discover the the city according to your interests. The guide will discuss with you the itinerary before the tour begins. Suggested tour includes a nice walk through Saint Mark’s area while learning the history about the most powerful maritime empire of the Mediterranean Sea. The Doge’s Palace, the Square, and the Basilica are highlights that must be seen for their beauty and their historical importance. From here, advance through the narrow streets until you reach some of the most beautiful churches of Venice: San Zaccaria, SS. Giovanni e Paolo and the ‘Miracoli’ Church. Now head north and walk alongside the island where it is possible to enjoy the fresh breeze of the lagoon and to see, in the not so far off distance, the islands of San Michele and Murano. Proceed through the Cannaregio area, one of the most picturesque part of Venice, that is peaceful and pleasant and off the beaten track. It’s rich with beautiful churches such as Madonna dell’ Orto; the house of Tintoretto, the most famous Venetian painter; ancient houses and palaces; the first ghetto in the world and much more. Then head back to Rialto passing by the house of Marco Polo and the Fontego dei Tedeschi where Germans traded their merchandise. Rialto Bridge and its market is a perfect place to say farewell at the end of this tour.
