Private Venice Art Tour: The Colours of the Floating City

1. Private Venice Art Tour: The Colours of the Floating City

You probably know Venice, the spectacular floating world of canals and islands, as a city of water. But that’s not its only claim to fame: the city known as La Serenissima is also one of the world’s greatest cities of art. From Bellini to Titian, Tintoretto to Veronese, Venice’s remarkable art scene is rivalled only by Florence for its influence on the development of Renaissance culture. And it’s everywhere – in Venice the story of art is an indelible part of city life, woven into the urban fabric in the shape of countless palaces and churches, meeting halls and museums. Inspired by the stunningly vibrant environment all around them, Venetian painters were beguiled by the unpredictable charms of colour, and our Venice Art Tour is the perfect introduction to the unique expressiveness of Venetian art. Join us to come face-to-face with some of the greatest masterpieces ever painted, and in the company of one of our expert guides learn how art has shaped the city in unforgettable locations often overlooked by tour itineraries. The magnificent Accademia is one of the world’s premier art galleries, home to Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man amongst other highlights by all the biggest names in Venetian art. In the Basilica dei Frari we’ll wander around Venice’s most spectacular church, adorned with masterpieces by Titian, Bellini, Donatello and others. Finally, discover why the Scuola di San Rocco is known as Tintoretto’s Sistine Chapel for good reason – over the course of 20 years the master adorned the Scuola with 60 massive paintings that showcase the genius of Venetian art like nowhere else. And that’s not all: this special itinerary weaves through the narrow streets and canals of one of Venice’s most charming districts, Dorsoduro. Along the route we’ll come across a wonderful array of hidden churches and palaces, like the spectacular Ca’ Rezzonico perched on the waters of the Grand Canal. The brilliant colours of this vibrant Venetian landscape seem to be lifted straight from the amazing paintings we’ll encounter on this tour. In Venice, life imitates art - experience it for yourself! Classic sights included in our itinerary: The Accademia Gallery The Scuola di San Rocco The Basilica dei Frari

What people are saying about Campo San Polo

This was a great tour. We learned so much about art in Venice at 3 different locations. Our guide was amazing. She was extremely knowledgeable but also was able to adjust her conversation to our group which was mostly teens! Would definitely recommend this tour!
