Description

Discover the city of canals and gondolas in a very personal way on this walk. You start your tour with the exploration of the Scuole Grandi. The brotherhoods played an important role in Venice, designating not only guilds but also lay fraternities. During your walk you will follow in the footsteps of the Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schavoni, the brotherhood of the Dalmatians, among others. The brotherhood is famous for its magnificent paintings by Vittore Carpaccio

The walk continues to Campo San Zaccaria with the impressive monastery church of the same name. The main attraction of the church is the fascinating Renaissance painting by Giovanni Bellini, founder of the Venetian School of Painting and teacher of Vittore Carpaccio, and you can continue to the legendary Bridge of Sighs, which connects the Doge's Palace and the new prison

Then discover the Doge's Palace, one of the most famous buildings in Venice. For more than eight centuries the palace was the seat of government. Today, inside the palace you can relive several centuries of Venetian history. The palace also houses important works by Tintoretto and Paolo Veronese

Very close by is also the Markusdom. With the gorgeous arquitecture and the many art treasures, the impressive Roman Catholic Church is a real must for every visitor of Venice. Inside the Cathedral, admire the fascinating Byzantine mosaics and contemplate one of its greatest treasures: the Pala d'Oro, made up of thousands of precious stones and enamel works

Walk past the clock tower and the Merceria, the lively shopping street that takes you to Rialto. This is also the location of the German trading post, which was furnished by important artists such as Albrecht Dürer. Then cross the famous Rialto Bridge and reach Campo San Giacometto, one of the oldest churches in the city. Near the Rialto Bridge you can also discover the buildings of Fabbriche Nuove and take a break on the Grand Canal
