San Polo and Rialto: 2-Hour Private Walking Tour

7. San Polo and Rialto: 2-Hour Private Walking Tour

Learn the history of Venice as told through the tales of its prominent merchants, courtesans, and painters in San Polo, the site of the city's main market since 1097. The tour starts near the Rialto area. Venice was a city where west met east, and exotic items such as silk and spices were traded alongside traditional goods like copper and wood. The city's courtesans were well-off in this golden age and lived in sumptuous apartments. They were often accomplished musicians and raconteurs, and some were even deployed as secret spies for the state. Focus will then shift to the Venetian artists, with a visit to the Gothic Frari church, which dwarfs the eastern side of San Polo. Built by Franciscans in the 13th century, it is one of the city's largest places of worship. Simply the sheer size of its striking interior will amaze you, let alone the quality of its High Renaissance masterpieces – Titian's Assumption being the most famous.

From here you can also marvel at the enchanting Rialto Bridge - the first bridge built on the Grand Canal. Alternatively, the free time can be spent later, at St Mark's Square where you could visit the Doge Palace or the Basilica on your own. After a refreshing break at the Rialto market, we will cross the Rialto bridge to experience how the other half of the island lives. Here you will learn about the lives of traders who after a successful day on shore would re-embark on their merchant vessels docked at the port. Finally, we will make it to one of the most beautiful squares in the world: the renowned and breathtaking San Marco Square - the most famous and only "Square of Venice".
