Byzantine Venice: Walking tour of Venice & the Golden Basilica
  • Byzantine Venice: Walking tour of Venice & the Golden Basilica

    The Walking Tour of Venice begins at the spacious and beautiful Piazza San Marco, where you will discover many of the Serenissima Reppublica’s most iconic buildings: the breath-taking Basilica, the Doge’s Palace (or the Palazzo Ducale), the Bell Tower and many more. Continue then to Santa Maria Formosa, where your guide will tell you all the tales behind this fabulous square.

    Other sites you will see throughout the walk are Marco Polo’s House, the Great School of Charity, and even the Pantheon of Venice. The last tram of the stroll will take you through the thrilling Mercerie, the vibrant shopping district between Rialto and San Marco.

    The tour of the Golden Basilica takes you into this extraordinary construction – unparalleled in style and beauty in the rest of Italy. Contemplate the breathtaking golden mosaics and the marble inlaid floors. Then, enjoy a leisurely break as your guide tells you all about the biblical tales represented in the Basilica’s walls.

    See the Pala d’Oro, an outstanding piece of byzantine art decorated with thousands of gems and precious stones.

    The gondola is a symbol of Venice, as emblematic of the famous city of canals as it is mysterious in its origins. Experience a 30-minute gondola ride that takes you along the Grand Canal (S.Maria della Salute area) and minor canals (Fenice area) where you can admire the famous Venitian architecture as well as take in iconic historic landmarks from a unique perspective.
