"La Serenissima Dominate" (The Most Splendid Maritime Republic) is literally laid at your feet as you stroll from lagoon to bridge to piazza.
Your private lecture-tour begins at the Byzantine jewel of Venice , St. Marks Church and Square. From here you experience architectural splendor of the Bell Tower - Il Campanile, Renaissance Masterpieces and a breath-taking view of the old harbor (Bacino di San Marco) from the Ponte dei Sospiri - " Bridge of Sights ". A stop at Marco Polo's House precedes you visit to the Rialto Bridge , a perfect finale to your tour.
The Lecture-Guide, while speeding you past lines and through secret entrances, explains to you why Napoleon once called this city, "Europe 's finest drawing room".
