The first part of the tour will be a fascinating walking tour of Venice Italy to admire the most important and characteristic locations of this unique city.

A walking itinerary between St Mark's Square and Rialto: you will walk in Venice, accompanied by an expert guide and admire some of its most famous buildings.

The tour begins at one of the landmarks of Venice: St Mark's Square. You will discover what is in St Mark's Square, its ancient buildings, famous prestigious monuments and historic cafes.

The tour will continue towards Santa Maria Formosa - where you will be told the story of the beautiful church and of the homonymous square in front of it, along with some curious anecdotes – and Campo Santi Giovanni and Paolo.

The walking tour in Venice will then take you to one of its most charming corners, in which anecdotes and ancient history intertwine until they merge. Venice walks will visit the place where the house of Marco Polo once stood andsee the exterior of the famous Teatro Malibran. 

Finally, this poetic Venice walk and tour will take you to the main shopping street: the Mercerie, a fascinating array of narrow streets where valuable goods brought to Venice from distant markets were once sold.

The second part of the tour is a gondola ride to discover the lesser-known areas of one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

A charming gondola ride in Venice to admire the majestic architectural masterpieces overlooking the water: from the Basilica della Salute on the Grand Canal to the intimate and evocative atmosphere of the smaller canals around the La Fenice Theatre in Venice!

During the gondola ride you can admire the famous Basilica della Salute from the outside, a majestic building that stands in the suggestive landscape of St Mark's Basin and the Grand Canal. Built and designed by Baldassare Longhena, a renowned architect and sculptor of the Venetian Republic, the basilica offers different perspective views according to the point from which it is observed.

Leaving the Grand Canal you will be able to delve deeper in the picturesque smaller canals of Venice, where you can admire a not very well known Venice whilst being gently lulled by the calm sway along the typical the canals of Venice.

The gondola ride will take you to the most famous theatre in Venice, La Fenice, to admire its stunning exteriors from the water.

Two fascinating tours with one convenient booking and at a lower price than purchasing the individual itineraries!
