Classical Venice: the Highlights

Culture and History tour in Venice

Tour Price : 140 E Duration : 2 hours Languages: English, German, Italian

Venice is usually called the most precious gem of Italian Renaissance, and it is absolutely true. Among various attractions in Venice the Doge’s palace is one of the most visited and famous. You won’t be able to appreciate the beauty of Venetian art and the richness of its culture and history without visiting the famous Doge’s Palace.
The Italians say that visiting this palace is definitely a must for each and every tourist. It is built in Venetian Gothic style and represents great interest for the architecture devotees. It is one of the places which is always included in the itineraries of all the private tours in Venice. Most people consider the Doge’s Palace to be major landmark of Venice.  It used to be the residence of the supreme authority of Venice – the Doge of Venice. According to the statistics more than a million of people visited the Doge’s Palace in 2010. As a professional private guide in Venice I would also recommend you to visit St. Mark’s square, which used to be the political center of the Republic of Venice. During the tour we will also take a look at the bridge of sighs.
It is made of limestone and connects different part of Venice. It was Lord Byron who gave the bridge this name. It is worth noting that the Bridge of Sighs was the last thing the criminals saw before their imprisonment, and that’s why the bridge bears such interesting name. We would also visit the oldest church in Italy – St. Mark’s Church.
