This tour is magical! It allows a view of the Basilica, lit up at night with a small number of people which changes the experience to spectacular and very moving. ELENA, our guide is a storyteller who captured our imagination and made the Basilica come...More

San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the
Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six
sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest
neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the
markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops
display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San
Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi)
stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
