Tour description

Welcome to the capital of Serenissima!
The history of Venice is a story of constant improvement, the open-air wonder you are going to walk through was originally a town of Roman refugees fleeing barbarian invasions. Do you want to know how they turned their city into the commercial center of the known world? Make your reservation now!

We will walk from Canal Grande , the main artery of the city, to the vicinity of the San Marco complex . We will visit palaces with a splendid past such as Pisani Palace , the church of San Maurizio with a not very straight bell tower and theaters that were the center of the social life of high society. Did you know that the motto of the Gran Teatro de la Fenice is "Resurrected twice from my ashes"? Come and I will tell you its story, nothing more and nothing less than the famous opera " La Traviata " was premiered here!

The Doge's Palace will be an essential stop on this tour, the center of Venetian power was also a high security prison, although... Casanova was able to escape and write a book about his feat. No wonder!

In Piazza San Marco we will admire the wonder of a glorious past like that of the Venetian Republic, which friends and enemies called " the Dominant ".

We will end with an incredible panoramic view from the Riva degli Schiavoni , a large promenade located in the old commercial port, the Bacino of San Marco.

Do not hesitate to book the best tour to understand and fall in love, like me, with this city. Marco Polo, Marino Falier, Galileo and María Malibrán from Madrid are waiting for you!
