The Tour

See the city’s highlights and discover the city urban development and daily life!

Engaged with a game, kids and parents will be requested to solve quiz, to catch symbols, to find out details while learning the great history of Venice and its monuments.

With the help of maps and other tools we will discover how Venice was built as well as a lot of interesting facts and curiosities.

St. Mark’s square

Political heart of Venice since the 9th c., the square has always been the central place of all feasts and ceremonies.

It hugely stretches from St. Mark’s Basilica to the Correr Museum with a slightly trapezoidal plan, while the smaller “piazzetta” watches St. Mark’s basin with the Doge’s Palace and the Library.

Two massive columns open the view to the stunning islands of St. George and Giudecca; they each have a statue on top: the winged lion, the symbol of St. Mark and soon of the Serenissima Republic too, and St. Theodore, the first patron saint of Venice, who fought and vanquished a dragon.

Rialto Bridge

The most famous Venetian bridge, the only one which spanned on the Grand Canal for centuries.

Characterized by lively shops on its two sides, it still marks the city’s vocation for trading.

Rebuilt in stone at the end of the 16th c., it has been recently restored. From its top one can enjoy a stunning view of the Canal and its palaces.

Scala Contarini del Bovolo

Hidden between St. Mark’s square and Rialto, this elegant staircase has been reopened recently to the public.

With its 113 low steps, easy to climb, it allows a peculiar view of the roofs of Venice, step by step.

From its belvedere one can embrace part of the city with beautiful buildings, high bell-towers and many other nice curiosities.

Tailor Made Tours Available

The city offers many possibilities to customize the tour.

A quick visit of St. Mark’s Basilica, with skip the line access, can give a better understanding of the relationship between Venice and the Orient. The youngest will be fascinated by the preciousness of the mosaics.

During the walk a yummy break can be arranged for a gelato or a delicious sweet, in order to discover some local traditions too.

The tour can continue with the discovery of Rialto Market and/or with a gondola ride.
