In this walking tour, I take you around St Mark’s Square, walking till Rialto, you will see all the best attraction of Venice: The Basilic, the Clock Tower, St Mark’s Square, the Doge Palace, the beautiful restaurants, the nice shop, and of course the amazing Rialto bridge.
At Rialto, we take the “vaporetto” and navigate the “Grand Canal” till Accademia, walking at the top of Accademia bridge. We will visit the “Dorsoduro” sestiere till Basilic of Santa Maria della Salute, where we took a “traghetto”, a traditional venetian gondola used to cross the “Grand Canal”. The Traghetto takes us to Giardini Reali, and finally we will arrive at St Mark’s Square.
San Marco is the tourist heart of Venice, home to iconic sights like St. Mark’s Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and the Bridge of Sighs. The area is often thronged with people, and the restaurants on and around St. Mark’s Square offer multilingual menus for the international crowd. The surrounding streets are filled with casual snack bars, upscale fashion boutiques and shops selling glass art and gift items.
