Description

Highlights of Venice

Why was Venice built on water? When was Venice built? How could it survive unconquered for 1,000 years, with the most stable and long-lived political system after the Roman Empire? Why does St. Mark’s Church look so Oriental? Is Venice sinking?…I  will lead you through the millennium of life of the Serenissima Republic. So, let’s discover  the past full of charm of this unique city and its intriguing present. We will explore Piazza San Marco discovering  its origins, as well as the history and description of the main monuments: San Marco Church,  Bell Tower, Clock Tower, Procuratie and Doge’s Palace. I’ll tell you anecdotes about the history of Santa Maria Formosa church and many stories about this wonderful and characteristic “campo”. We will visit Campo SS. Giovanni e Paolo (Zanipolo for locals), the “Pantheon” of Venice. I’ll show you the most beautiful hospital of the world and Marco Polo’s house and the secrets of Rialto area.
