Full description
Venice is one of the most famous and most intriguing cities in the world, which for 1,500 years was one of Europe's richest and most powerful nations. Envied, imitated, but never equaled, the city is like a living museum that still lures the visitor deep into its narrow streets rich in architectural and artistic brilliance. Monuments, anecdotes, and glimpses of daily life abound in this walk from the city's core, the Piazza San Marco, to the Rialto Bridge over the shimmering Grand Canal. Join me as we explore the street where the revolution failed in 1310, the passageway named for strong drink, the church restored by the egotistic doctor, the square dedicated to one of Venice's greatest and most forgotten heroes, all places where centuries seamlessly join the present in luxury stores, artisans' workshops and pocket-sized cafe's.

It was a very nice and to the point tour. We passed by the points of the tour before we start it and then came back to learn the actual meaning of places we didn't know were of interest before.
