Full description
Start your tour on land, as your expert guide leads you to famous buildings such as La Fenice Opera House, as well as more curious and peculiar ones such as Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo, with its elegant spiral staircase. At La Fenice Theatre, visit its remarkable exteriors, restored several times and finally brought back to glory. Continue to the Rialto area, the oldest part of Venice which preserves the customs and traditions of the city. See the famous Rialto Bridge, with its unique staircase, densely populated by many shops. After a stroll through the narrow streets of Venice, hit the water. Discover the Basilica della Salute, one of the finest examples of Baroque architecture, for a different perspective. Navigate through the minor canals of Venice, leaving the more famous Grand Canal and heading to other important and majestic places.

Nice start-up activity to understand Venice and the gondola ride is a must!

Our gondola driver was horrible. If he doesn’t enjoy his job, he should find another one.
