Arrival in Venice and hotel accommodation.
In the afternoon a visit to San Marco square and gondola ride. There will be a brief historical introduction of the Doge's Palace, once the seat of power of the Republic of Venice, and of the Golden Basilica, the Cathedral. A few steps from San Marco the gondola ride begins, along the minor canals such as the Rio dei Barcaroli, where Mozart's house is located, and the Rio dell 'Ovo until you reach the Grand Canal. The magnificence of the Rialto Bridge, Ca 'Farsetti, seat of the town hall and Palazzo Grimani, the largest building overlooking the canal and the current seat of the Court of Appeal, are reflected on the waters. The tour continues to Rio San Luca which overlooks Palazzo Manin, residence of the last doge of Venice Ludovico Manin, now the seat of the Bank of Italy. In the gondola you can experience the noises, sounds, smells, fragrances and voices of Venice: the oars gliding through the water, the private boats passing by, the fruit and vegetables for sale displayed on board the boats along some of the canals, the Venetians who call out to each other from one side of a canal to the other. Memories and presents of the most unique atmosphere in the world. Dinner in a restaurant experiencing the best dishes of Venetian cuisine.
