Event > Discover Venice

DISCOVER VENICE A walking tour is the best way to discover the hidden corners of Venice. Next to the most famous buildings of the city, you can catch glimpses of surprising angles and less know architectures, hidden but essential elements to understand its cultural and artistic history. Discover the unusual Venice! The area between St. Mark’s Square and Rialto includes the most famous monuments and views of Venice, but it also hides unexpected treasures. In the middle of the narrow streets and canals between these two famous areas, you can find magnificent architectures, which are usually overlooked by the touristic routes in city.
The guided tour ‘Discover Venice’ starts with a visit to the famous theatre La Fenice, renowned in the world for its importance in the history of Opera and Music, but also sadly famous for having been several times destroyed by the fire. The tour continues then with the evocative external staircase of Palazzo Contarini del Bovolo, a spiral architecture housed inside an arched cylindrical tower, hidden in the maze of alleys of the centre of the city. This unusual staircase will surprise you with its original style, example of the transition from Gothic to Renaissance art.
The tour continues in the most ancient part of the city, Rialto, the commercial hub of the Venetian Republic, a traditional meeting point for people and cultures and now the vibrating centre of the city. Here you will admire the Rialto Bridge, the oldest bridge on the Grand Canal. The famous structure that we see today was built from a project by Antonio da Ponte and  Antonio Contin and resembles the original wooden structure, with shops on both sides.
For a guided tour to discover the unusual Venice, among beautiful architectures of the past and an experience of the real life in Venice today!
