Tour description

Welcome to Venice! A unique city in the world awaits you so you can learn about its legends that make it a magical city. This free tour will allow us to discover the neighborhoods of San Polo and Dorsoduro , two of the least visited by tourists.

We will meet at the door of the Church of Santa Maria Gloriosa, the largest church in Venice and which hides a magical garden that produces miraculous lettuces , the same ones that cured the supplier Nicolò Leoni of an illness. We will pass by one of the city's crooked bell towers to continue advancing looking for characters such as the poetess Gaspara Stampa , the mysterious painter Antonio Fumiani and we will choose sides between the two great competing Venetian factions : Nicolotti and Castellani .

By the way, did you know that the word "pants" originates from Venice ? Only we will tell you!

Not only does it stop there, we will pass chapels with indestructible windows, old cemeteries with screaming skulls and even floating fruit shops ! You do not believe it?

In addition, we will see scenes from movies like Indiana Jones, streets that remind us of old love affairs between a young Turkish girl and a Venetian , mummies of crusader knights , wells perfect for hiding crimes and even gondola shipyards .

We can't write everything here, so book now and don't miss this amazing tour!

We will wait for you!
