Learn about how the Venetians live in the most wonderful city in the world, during your 2-hour walking tour with a local guide.

Be ready to feel like a local as your tour begins in the lively square of Campo Santa Margherita, surrounded in a friendly atmosphere and little off the beaten tourist track. This square is frequented by locals shopping for produce during the daytime and students enjoying the nightlife. Your tour will continue past the Campo San Rocco and San Polo to the Rialto Market. Here you will feast your eyes on the colorful varieties of local produce, including the purple artichokes from St. Erasmo island, before crossing the Rialto Bridge.

See St. Mark's Basilica's arches on the west facade, elaborately decorated with marble and Romanesque carved entrance ways, situated beside the Doge's palace built in Venetian Gothic style.
