What to expect

Your guide will take you inside Palazzo Ducale, once the seat of Venetian political power. The guide will show you the palace's splendid rooms, plastered and immersed in hundreds of masterpieces of paintings. You'll discover the halls of power, plunging you in a very particular historical context: the European Middle Ages and the immediately following centuries.

After the visit of Doge's Palace, you will visit the unusual and fascinating corners of Venice off the beaten track where time seems to have stood still centuries ago. You will enjoy a panoramic walking tour with the guide of the area between Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge, through a labyrinth of little canals, and sites of historic and artistic interest, passing by some special places: Teatro La Fenice (The Phoenix), one of the most famous opera house in Europe; Scala del Bovolo, a unique spiral staircase with a plethora of arches; Rialto Bridge and its typical shops, one of the architectural icons of Venice.

At the end of the walking tour, you will enjoy a relaxing gondola ride approximately 30 minutes ride on the Grand Canal (S. Maria della Salute area) and minor canals (Fenice area).
