Welcome! Venice Sightseeing Tour with local guide, small group

We'll start our tour from the historical Rialto area, defined by historians "the Wall Street of Europe in the Middle Ages". We'll discover the secrets of the Rialto Market and I'll unveil the venetian point of view about the Rialto bridge and its spectacular view on the Grand Canal. We'll discover why masks and Carnival are so important in Venice and then away from the crowds, we will take a walk to discover the unique layout of the city: bridges, fancy private palaces, narrow alleyways, large and small campi(our squares), elaborate stone well heads. Finally we'll reach the most beautiful square of the world, Piazza San Marco, to see all the famous architectures (the Doges' Palace, Sansovino Library, the Bridge of Sighs, the Bell Tower, Procuratie) online outside.
If you are a curious traveller and it's your first time in Venice for sure you'd like to have answers to all these questions:
Why was Venice built on water? When was Venice built? Why does St. Mark's Church look so Oriental? Is Venice sinking?

I will lead you through the millennium of life of the Serenissima Republic. So, let's discover the past full of charm of this unique city and its intriguing present.
