Itinerary Details

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Scala Contarini del Bovolo

Towards the end of the 15th century, Palazzo Contarini in Venice was enriched with a "bizarre and graceful" spiral staircase (in Venetian "bovolo", hence the name). It is a precious secret gem of this romantic city;a unique architectural treasure that combines the essence of Renaissance, Gothic and Byzantine styles.

Stop At: Ponte di Rialto

The Rialto Bridge is the oldest of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy. Connecting the sestieri (districts) of San Marco and San Polo, it has been rebuilt several times since its first construction as a pontoon bridge in 1173, and is now a significant tourist attraction in the city.

Duration: 10 minutes

Pass By: Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute

The dome of the Basilica della Salute has characterized the scenario of St Mark's basin in Venice for more than three hundred years, an authoritative testimony of the high spirituality that marked the 17th century in Venice. It was wanted by the Serenissima as a prayer and as thanksgiving to the Virgin Mother of God to preserve the city of Venice from the terrible plague of the 17th century.

Pass By: Teatro La Fenice

Teatro la Fenice: a name, a story. As the phoenix rises from its ashes, so it was for this fantastic theatre risen twice from the flames and water. It has been and is home to numerous premieres of operas by Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi, Stravinsky, and many others.
