Highlights of Venice Private Walking Tour with Palazzo Ducale
Enjoy a panoramic walking tour with your knowledgeable licensed guide and explore the area between Piazza San Marco & Rialto Bridge, including their labyrinth of little canals and sites of interest, including entrance to the Palazzo Ducale.
This is the perfect tour for those who come to Venice for the first time: learn about the winged lion, the story of St Mark being brought to Venice from Egypt, his “golden church”, and then Theodore, killing a dragon, and, of course, when, how and why the Venetians have built a city on hundreds of thousands of wooden poles stuck in the mud of its lagoon. You will visit St Mark’s square and end at the Rialto bridge on the Grand Canal. By the end of the tour, you will understand the everyday life in the city, its problems, what it’s like to live in such a city, especially when “high water” strikes, you’ll learn how people protect the city and the lagoon.
