Tour description

Few cities in the world offer us the scenery of Venice! The ancient capital of the Serenissima continues to be a reference for the mystery, excesses and love affairs of another time.

The tour takes place through the San Polo neighborhood and the Dorsoduro neighborhood. We will start at the Church of the Frari , the largest in Venice, where in addition to being buried some of the most important artists of Venice, the most beloved pet of the Venetians, the cat Nini , was buried. We will present it to you!

The area presents us with many curious stories, in the School of San Rocc we will see how Tintoretto, in addition to being a genius of painting, was a great genius of cunning to find a good place for himself in the artistic panorama of the city. Nearby, in the Church of San Pantalon we will see the largest painting on canvas in the history of art and we will tell you the legend that surrounds it!

Did you know that there is a bridge in Venice where the boys from the neighborhoods met to fight and see which parish would win? The Ponte of the fists ... its name already tells us enough! And furthermore, right in front of a church that hides some cinematographic secrets, who will recognize the movie that was recorded in that same place?

If you want to know these stories and many more, don't hesitate to take this tour! It won't taste long enough!

No realizamos este tour debido a que no se presentó el guía. Nos enteramos a posteriori que dicho tour fue cancelado desde hace un año o así, por lo que agradecería que fuera quitado de la página y así no hubiera este tipo de problemas. Un saludo
