The charm of Venice is not limited to the Grand Canal and St. Mark's Square, but also many of the smaller areas; away from the popular tourist attractions and which merit an in-depth visit.

Thanks to this exclusive tour you will be able to admire the Cannaregio neighborhood, the second largest and most populated surrounding the lagoon, starting with your departure from the Ca' d'Oro, the site of the museum that houses masterpieces like Andrea Mantegna's "San Sebastiano" or Tiziano's "Giuditta". The second most important course of water in Venice passes through this neighborhood with its "vaporetti" steamboat: the Cannaregio Canal hosts two of the most characteristic bridges in Venice, the Ponte delle Guglie (Bridge of Spires) and the Ponte dei Tre Archi (Bridge of Three Arches), the latter being the last remaining bridge in Venice with three arches. The Cannaregio neighborhood was also home to the first Jewish Ghetto in Europe, founded in 1516 and populated for over two and a half centuries.Next you will journey in the direction of Santa Croce, another of this city's unique neighborhoods, where you will admire the Church of San Stae (with its paintings by Giambattista Tiepolo and many others) and the Palazzo Corner della Regina (seat of the historic archive of the Venice Biennial), recently purchased by Miuccia Prada for more than 40 million Euro.You will also have the opportunity to enjoy one of the few interior gardens that are open to the public in Venice, a privilege reserved for just a few.After this morning, our guide will be happy to suggest a typical and characteristic restaurant near St. Mark's Square where you can enjoy a well-deserved culinary experience, before taking time to wander and discover the many wonders of Venice.NB: transfers to and from your accommodation can be arranged upon request.
