With this private tour you will have the opportunity to discover the true heart of Venice - the Rialto - with its typical open–air fruit and fish market, whilst also exploring the San Polo area, with the magnificent church of the Frari, home to artworks by Titan and Bellini.
The San Polo area was traditionally the city's commercial quarter. Here bankers, brokers and merchants conducted their affairs by day, and the renowned courtesans worked by night. Your walking tour includes the Rialto bridge, Statue of the Gobbo di San Giacomo, Campo San Polo and the huge Frari church with its masterpieces by Titian and Bellini, the Monks Choir and Canova's tomb.
This two hour guided walking tour caters for those with little formal knowledge of architecture and art yet who are keen to learn more and become fully immersed in the beauty of the city. On the tour you will visit the churches of San Giovanni and Paolo as well as the amazing church of the Miracoli, one of the prettiest churches in the city.
The unique city of Venice is best explored on foot and a private walking tour offers you the opportunity to escape the crowds. You can choose from two itineraries depending on whether you are staying in the San Marco area, or the train station area, and as this is a private tour you can choose the sights that you wish to see.
