What To Expect

Chiesa di San Rocco
Originally built in 1508, there's no better place to start your tour of Venice, than with this marvel through time dedicated to St. Roch, the patron saint of multiple cities in and around Venice, who played a significant role through the darkest days of history- the plague. The magnificent centuries-old architecture, complemented with timeless pieces of art on the inside, will take you through time, off not only the history of the church but that of the city.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Basilica di Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari
Established in 1231, yet another standing testament of gothic architecture, this Basilica whilst portrayed on the outside with a simple gothic style brick wall, it lies home to the infamous ‘Assumption of the Virgin’ by Titian, and many more ageless pieces of art, both paintings, and sculptures alike.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Chiesa Rettoriale di San Polo
Dedicated to St. Paul, this small gothic church is home to numerous pieces of art, such as ‘Last Supper’, ‘St. Silvester baptizes Emperor Constantine’, ‘St Paul Preaching’, ‘Marriage of the Virgin’, ‘St Peter and the Keys’ and many more.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Mercati di Rialto
Located by the arched Rialto Bridge, this busy market is one of the busiest commercial spots of the city, alongside the iconic Grand Canal. The market regularly witnesses a footfall comprising both locals and international tourists alike.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Ponte di Rialto
Built-in just three years, between 1588 and 1591. It remained the only way to cross the Grand Canal on foot until late 1854. The Rialto Bridge's 24-foot arch and the massive structure was built on around 12,000 wooden pilings that still support the bridge more than 400 years later.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Scala Contarini del Bovolo
Built to showcase the wealth of the Contarini family, this spiralling "snail" staircase to heaven, lies hidden in San Marco. This architectural marvel lies hidden and unknown to many tourists, making it a rare find.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Piazza del Galdo-Sant'Angelo
Aptly called 'the drawing room of Europe' by Napolean, the St. Marks square is by far the most iconic place in Venice. While it opens out into the sea on one front, it is bordered by the St. Marks Basilica on the other. This vast expanse almost poetically is submerged with the high tide as the sun goes down at night. We also offer, an optional, all-inclusive Gondola tour of San Marco square.

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Strada Nova
We will finally pass by the Strada Nova before reaching the Venice Station. The Strada Nova is a name used to cover the long chain of shopping streets running through Venice.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Our guide Catherine was wonderful! Two of our foursome were older and couldn't easily keep up with a rapid walking tour, so she booked a boat to show us around Venice sites, then took us to ones we were especially interested in. It was a much better way to see more of Venice than trying to walk it around all the canals. At the end of the tour, two of us went on a gondola ride and afterwards drank wine and relaxed in a small cafe near the grand canal. A wonderful visit thanks to our flexible and thoughtful guide!

Wonderful! We took a high speed train from Florence to Venice and were greeted by our tour guide right at the train station. I liked that! We spent the day going through the city and discovering new things with our guide. Her knowledge was amazing! We took tons of pictures, ate delicious food and gained some insider tips along the way. I would highly recommend Barbara! A true student of Venice and knows the ins and outs of the locals.
