The Gondola tour

The gondola tour will start from Bacino Orseolo, located behind St. Mark’s Square and next to the Hard Rock Cafe.
The tour continues along minor but incomparably beautiful canals such as Rio dei Barcaroli, where Mozart’s house is located, and Rio dell’Ovo until it reaches the Canal Grande. From here, on the right we can see the magnificence of the Rialto Bridge and on the left important palaces such as Ca’ Farsetti, seat of the city hall, and Palazzo Grimani, the largest building overlooking the Grand Canal and seat of the Court of Appeal. The tour continues to Rio San Luca where we can see Palazzo Manin, the residence of the last Doge of Venice Ludovico Manin today the seat of the Bank of Italy. The tour ends at the same boarding point.

The Pizza dinner

What Italy would be without a good pizza.
We have selected for you the largest chain of Neapolitan pizzerias in the world: Rossopomodoro – Venezia San Marco.
Here you will taste zeppoline, montanara, the mozzarella and tomato skewer, Ice cream or Tiramisu and… the pizza.

Venice gate to the Orient: a history of trade and power.

Meeting Point: San Giovanni Evangelista
Tour lenght: 2h30

The Tour is a walk that focuses on how Venice became, along the centuries, a crossway for trade in between the East and the West, the Mediterrenean Sea and Europe. Its Byzantine roots are still evident in the gracious shapes of the ‘Palazzi’ along the Grand Canal and peep out of each corner giving a unique moorish flavour to the city.

We cross the market area of Rialto, former headquarters of the economic and financial life of the Republic of Venice, the “Wall Street” of Europe and a hub for buyers and sellers of different nationalities, where goods of all kind could be found, gold and spices and silk as well as fish and olive oil, soap, leather and much more.

We proceed across the bridge of Rialto to reach the square of St. Mark, the most iconic site of the city, once political centre of the Republic of Venice. If possible, the visit will be to the Basilica of San Marco, otherwise the visit will be to San Zaccaria and its crypts.

The tour ends in St. Mark’s square.
