Description

Discover the green heart of Venice as you visit the gardens of private villas, ancient monasteries, and parks. Go behind the facades of historical buildings and walk along a less trodden path. Spend a day surrounded by the scent of flowers, medicinal plants, and fruit trees. Meet your guide at Combo and head off to explore some of the city's 500 parks and gardens. Listen as you guide tells you curiosities and the history of Venice beyond its common touristy routes. See where Venetians hang out with their families at Cannareggio, pass by a Renaissance villa, and see an in-nature theatre. Take in a stunning view over a lagoon from the terrace of a secret garden which is run by a nunnery. Find yourself in an oasis of calmness and meditation. Walk through a nursery where locals buy cyclamens and geraniums to add color to their balconies. Immerse yourself in contemporary art which is placed in the atmosphere of a garden. Relax in public parks, inner courtyards, and idyllic monastery gardens. See for yourself how the gardens outnumber the bridges in the city.
