What better way to begin to get to know Venice than by passing through its most famous and historical spots? Enjoy with us the day to day life and the last thousand years of the Most Serene Republic.
The Venice guided tour begins at 9am at the foot of the clock tower in St Mark's square: the epicentre of the city. St Mark's Basilica can be found in this square, as well as the Doge's Palace, St Mark's Clock Tower and the 3 buildings which form "the Procuratie."
The tour continues towards Santa Maria Formosa, one of the most storied squares in all Venice. Here one can find the church of Santa Maria Formosa.
The next step on the tour will take us to the Campo de SS. Giovanni e Paolo, taking in the Venice "Pantheon" and the Scuola dell Carità complex, home of the Gallerie dell'Accademia.
To really travel back in time we will visit the house of Marco Polo, history's most famous explorer, and the Malibran Theatre, one of the most important theatres of 17th and 18th centuries.
The tour will end back at St. Mark's Square, having passed through Le Mercerie: the principle commercial artery of the city, and one of its most lively streets.
This tour does not visit the inside of any of the mentioned attractions: if you would like to visit St. Mark's Basilica or the Doge's Palace you can take one of our other tours.
