We’ll turn our gaze away from Venice’s most famous attractions on this tour, and uncover hidden parts of the city that most tourists never see. Heading away from St Mark’s Square, we’ll discover a labyrinth of little passages, narrow canals and beautiful bridges, all edged by clusters of tightly packed townhouses. Your guide will lead you through this less crowded part of the city, over bridges, down skinny lanes and into sunny piazzas. We’ll stop in the square of Campo San Giovanni e Paolo, where you’ll find the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, the most important example of Gothic architecture in Venice. We’ll also admire the 15th-century Santa Maria Formosa Church with its sculpture of Senator Vincenzo, and visit the Zaccaria church with its Renaissance façade. Your tour finishes back in St Mark’s square with a bit of free time to explore on your own, or people-watch at a canal-side café, before returning to your ship by motor launch.
The drop off point for this tour will be 4 bridges from St Mark's Square.
