Day 1 Depart From Rome

Stop At: Canal Grande

The Grand Canal is the most important "street" in Venice that can be followed by ferry or gondola. The Grand Canal divides the city centre into two parts, it is older than Venice for this reason the city was built following the path of the river. One end of the canal leads into the lagoon near the Santa Lucia railway station and the other end leads into the basin at San Marco. It makes a large reverse-S shape through the central districts (sestieri) of Venice. It is 3.8 km (2.4 mi) long, and 30 to 90 m (98 to 295 ft) wide, with an average depth of 5 metres (16 feet).

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Piazza San Marco

Piazza San Marco often known in English as St Mark's Square, is the principal public square of Venice where it is generally known just as la Piazza ("the Square"). All other urban spaces in the city (except the Piazzetta and the Piazzale Roma) are called campi ("fields"). The Piazzetta ("little Piazza/Square") is an extension of the Piazza towards the lagoon in its south east corner. The two spaces together form the social, religious and political centre of Venice and are commonly considered together. Here you can admire the most famous monuments of Venice, such as the 700-year-old basilica of San Marco and its museum , the San Marco Campanile, the Clock Tower of the first Renaissance building, the Ducal Palace in Venetian Gothic style and the Bridge of Sighs, where you can take romantic and unforgettable photos.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Ponte di Rialto

After lunch, you will head for the magnificent Rialto bridge, where you can admire the splendid view of the Grand Canal and stroll through the ancient Rialto market. Afterwards you will visit the historical Panoramic Terrace of Fontego dei Tedeschi, now the residence of some of the most famous brand shops, where you can enjoy the best view of Venice. In Venice we can count around 354 bridges. All these bridges were built to transportation issues but they add something special to the beauty of th city. The Rialto Bridge is the oldest of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice. Connecting the sestieri (districts) of San Marco and San Polo, it has been rebuilt several times since at first it was built with two old ships and than in a wooden structure. The last reconstruction, dated 1591, is the one we can see today.

Stop At: Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute

In the morning you will visit Santa Maria della Salute. It is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica located at Punta della Dogana in the Dorsoduro sestiere of the city of Venice. A religious complex was destroyed to build this church in honor of the Virgin Mary who had saved the city from the plague. It was completed in the second half of the VII century. It stands on the narrow finger of Punta della Dogana, between the Grand Canal and the Giudecca Canal, at the Bacino di San Marco, making the church visible when entering the Piazza San Marco from the water.
