From the gondola yard (Squero) to artisan shops, you walk the real Venice and watch locals as they go about their daily routines. Works of Titian and Tinteretto highlight the art discoveries. Views from the Grand Canal burn through your heart (and a few rolls of film). Churches, pallazzos, piazzas and a few Casanova haunts dot your journey as well.
Essential stops include the Accademia Painting Gallery and Bridge, San Margerita Square, Frari Church, and Ca' Rezzonico (A Venetian House depicting 18th century life).
After listening to your Lecture-Guide, you understand why Venice was once considered La Serenissima Dominante (The Most Splendid Maritime Republic). The information and inspirations only increases your appetite for Venetian sights, sounds and secrets.
