Piazza San Marco, basilica and Doge

Culture and History tour in Venice

Tour Price : 120,00 (2 hours) Duration : 2 (+ ev. 1 extra hour) Languages: Italian, English, French

This itinerary includes a visit to what was the political heart of Venice: the Palazzo Ducale, home of the Doges of Venice and seat of government of the Serenissima, the prisons and the famous Bridge of Sighs, the Piazza San Marco, the scene of many pomp and sumptuous public processions, the inimitable and unique Basilica of San Marco with its thousands of square meters of gold mosaics and its oriental atmosphere.

Price does not include the cost of the entrance tickets and can be combined to another walking tour, for instance a pleasant walk from Piazza San Marco to Rialto and back, passing in front of the Teatro la Fenice, which like the mythological bird, has risen several times from its misadventures, the typical Campo (Square) Sant'Angelo, Palazzo Contarini with its wonderful Scala del Bovolo (elliptical stone stairway) and Campo San Luca. Once on the river bank of the Grand Canal, one crosses the famous Rialto Bridge to visit the market, an old financial and business centre of the Republic of Venice, and then return to Piazza San Marco via the Mercerie (the quickest way connecting the political and religious heart of Venice to the economical, business centre of the Rialto) or via the area where Marco Polo's house is situated and through another famous square, Campo Santa Maria Formosa.
