Excursion Itinerary: Quintessential Venice

A MUST SEE TOUR OF VENICE
A MUST SEE TOUR OF VENICE

Your excursion will begin from the meeting point at 10.45  CALLE LARGA ASCENSIONE, 1256 - In front of the Post office (close to Correr Museum and St Mark's Square) - Look for the MEETING POINT sign on the wooden kiosk and from there, together with your official tour guide, you will depart for The Doge's Palace, which for centuries has been the seat of Venetian political power. In its splendid rooms, plastered and filled with hundreds of masterpieces, the Duke and his Council controlled the destiny of a thousand-year-old maritime republic. With this tour your guide will show you the corridors of power and will transport you back to the Middle Ages. You will be mesmerized by the rich details of the golden staircase, by the realism of the scenes represented by the artists who decorated this building.

Then you will be able to relive the desperation of the prisoners by crossing the famous Bridge of Sighs and entering the Venetian prisons, famous for housing Giacomo Casanova among others.

The tour continues inside the Basilica of Saint Mark, the masterpiece of Byzantine art. Sitting comfortably, you will savor the brilliant golden mosaics and marble inlays on the floors, while your guide unfolds before your eyes the history and peculiarities of this ancient and mysterious basilica.

You will admire the Pala d'Oro, an exquisite example of Byzantine art with its thousands of gems and precious stones. You will also enjoy the Treasure, a splendor of religious art collected throughout the centuries. Without a doubt, this tour is a dream come true for art lovers and not only!

Greca Tip: Remember that Venice has one of the largest and most chaotic historic centers in the world, so it is best to download the map of Venice in the maps.me app.
