A qualified and experienced guide will escort you through the millennium of life of the Serenissima Republic, recalling the past full of charm of this unique city. We will explore Piazza San Marco and discover its origins, as well as the history and description of the main monuments: Basilica San Marco, Palazzo Ducale, Bell Tower, Clock Tower and Procuratie. We will hear anecdotes about the history of Santa Maria Formosa and many stories about this wonderful and characteristic square. We will visit Campo SS. Giovanni e Paolo, the "Pantheon" of Venice, the Great School of Charity, the Captains of Fortune and Marco Polo's house. We will pass by the Malibran Theatre as the past and recent history cross each other in this beautiful corner of Venice.
