Venice Walking And Gondola Tour
Go a step further with this tour combination of a guided visit to the lesser known but equally as special sights of Venice as well as enjoying a gondola ride along the Grand and minor canal areas. Venice is a labyrinth of canals, alleys and piazzas, and so is best seen and experienced on foot and by water. With a guided visit of the area between Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge, and a cruise in gondola on the busy and quieter canal areas, you’ll get to see the best and the more unusual sights of Venice.
Uncover some special places such as the Teatro la Fenice, known as the Pheonix and one of the most known Opera houses in Italy, and the Scala de Bovolo, a wonderful spiral staircase covered in arches. Then stroll down to the Rialto Bridge, a stunning marble creation that has rightly captured the imagination of many an artist over the centuries since its construction in the 16th century. Although vastly over budget when built, no one can deny its majestic beauty as it spans the busy Grand Canal. Over the centuries it has become one of the city’s most iconic monuments. With its inverted v shape, rows of covered shops and its portico pinnacle, it is a prime spot for a photo opportunity.
Take to the water to see Venice as it should be seen. From the Grand Canal you can view the city as the merchant inhabitants of old would have as you take in their Fondaco houses with the warehouses at water level and the family residences above.
Then explore the quieter side of Venice as you take to the minor canals. You will gaze up in wonder at the buildings which seem to tower over you as you glide along on this age-old Venetian mode of transport. A great tour that brings together all that you love of Venice and more.
