Follow your licensed local guide who’s filled with all the ins and outs about the Renaissance period. Together, you’ll wander off the beaten path to witness hidden sights that show you what life was like centuries ago.

Inside see a breathtaking painting by Giovanni Bellini; a real treat to your eyes. Discover the stunning Venetian Palazzo Grimani. On the inside, you’re greeted with impressive interiors that’ll give you an extraordinary insight into 16th-century Venice. Check out one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world that resigned itself to constant flooding by keeping its precious books in gondolas, bathtubs and waterproof bins. Take in more sights whilst making your way to the largest church of Venice, where stories and legends await. Marvel at a great example of early Venetian Renaissance with a church that’s considered a tiny gem in the heart of town. Around the corner you will learn about a unique Arch that has served as a source of inspiration for many writers, poets, and photographers. Complete your tour at one of the most elegant squares in the world! Here your guide will tell you all about its buildings, before heading to one of the most valuable treasures of history, art, and faith: the St. Marco Basilica. You can choose if you want to enter together with your guide and hear more about it from inside.
