Your first stop on this private walking tour is the Gothic church of the Frari in the San Polo area. You'll see exquisite artworks by Titian and Bellini, as well as an imposing funeral monument by Canova.Next, you'll explore the famous open-air Rialto fruit and fish market, where local traders come to sing, shout and sell their wares. The site of this historic market between Campo delle Beccarie and the Grand Canal was established more than 600 years ago. While St Mark's Square was the political center of Venice, the Rialto was its commercial heart. The Ponte di Rialto was the first bridge built over the Grand Canal, and it was here, on the highest point in the city, that Venice was founded.This is a personalized tour with an English-speaking guide who is passionate about the magical city of Venice, and who will help you unlock its many secrets.
