This is a classic tour of Venice that starts in St.Mark’s square, where you’ll meet your private guide: you will talk about the winged lion, the story of St. Mark being brought to Venice from Egypt, his “golden church”, and how the Venetians managed to build such a city on hundreds of thousands of wooden poles stuck in the mud of the lagoon.
The tour continues with a walk to the Rialto Bridge on the Grand Canal, the most famous and photographed bridge in the world. The Rialto area was the trading and financial center of the Republic of Venice.
The tour goes on to the ancient Jewish ghetto in sestiere Cannaregio, one of the most authentic Venetian areas in the city, and yet quite unknown to tourists. You will end with the Jesuits’ campo and its church, where important canvas by Titian is preserved, as well as the small precious oratory of the Crociferi.
