You probably know Venice for its majestic traditional Carnival celebration filled with colors, costumes and masks. The latter made its debut in the Middle Ages.
Enjoy this 2-hour walking tour, and we'll reveal the mysteries of this former Mediterranean Maritime Republic. Then, dive with us into this historic tumult! Ranging from an anecdote on the craftsman, glassblower, and teaching by the Romans until the Napoleonic period. Discover emblematic refurbished places on Saint Mark's Square, a meeting place. After the fire of 976, the Doge's Palace, a building used for the Republic of Venice, was restored. There is also Saint Mark's Basilica, a building receiving the relics of Saint Mark the Evangelist, brought back by Venetian merchants. Take the time to see each monument from the outside and listen to the comments of your expert guides.
Face the incredible ingenuity of this city built on the water of a lagoon. Pass in front of the famous Bridge of Sighs. This bridge takes its name from the sigh of the prisoners when they saw Venice for the last time. Did you know that this prison hosted the famous Casanova in 1755. For those who do not know Casanova, besides the definition of a man who goes on love conquests, he is a multifaceted man who had many libertine fantasies. However, he was imprisoned for spying. Then, observe the view of the Grand Canal, its small canals and its famous gondolas.
From there, through the “calli” cobbled streets, enjoy the lively life of the Venetian people. From the canal, see the house of Mozart, the place where the talented composer lived. Also find the Fenice theater and the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute. Near the Rialto Bridge, find the Fondaco dei Tedeschi, once a warehouse for German goods, it is now a sumptuous shopping center. Explore and learn from Titian’s paintings, as you’ll go through the Frari Church and the Academy Gallery, just outside.
