HIDDEN CORNERS AND SECRET GARDENS - PRIVATE WALKING TOUR IN VENICE
THE HIDDEN CORNERS OF VENICE TO RIALTO'S BRIDGE
Could you ever imagine to find a vineyard in the city center of Venice? An historical amazing garden, hidden among the building of Venice, just 10 minutes away from Saint Mark’s square? Thanks to your guide this incredible courtyard will open its doors privately, just for you. This private walking tour will end in Rialto’s area, in the heart of the fish market, the perfect place where to enjoy a glass of Prosecco wine, and of course our typical seafood.
MEETING TIME anytime from 09.00 am
SAINT FRANCIS CHURCH Along with Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, this is one of two Franciscan churches in Venice. The site, originally a vineyard (vigna), was donated by Marco Ziani in 1253 for construction of the monastery. A tiny chapel already on the site recalled the spot where an angel supposedly had pronounced Pax tibi Marce, evangelista meus to the shipwrecked Saint Mark, patron of Venice. You will be able to see it surely from the outside, but, if you want, also indoor.
THE VINEYARD yes a vineyard in the middle of Venice!
CASTELLO DISTRICT You will walk through this area. The real Venice, where, today, most of the Venetians live
RIALTO BRIDGE Built in the closing years of the 16th century, the Rialto Bridge is the oldest bridge across the canal and is renowned as an architectural and engineering achievement of the Renaissance
