WALKING TOUR OF VENICE | EXPERIENCE
- Teatro La Fenice & Scala del Bovolo
The tour begins at the world-famous opera house, Teatro La Fenice, which can seat over 1,000 people. Named after the phoenix, a mythical bird that rose from the ashes, the theater did just that when it was reconstructed after a devastating fire in 1836. Your guide then takes you to the Scala del Bovolo, the ornate staircase that resembles its Italian namesake, the snail. As you explore the history of this magical city, you discover that Venice is as fascinating as it is beautiful.
- Grand Canal & Rialto Bridge
Of course, no tour of Venice would be complete without a view of the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge. This breathtaking marble masterpiece is still a bustling commercial area and home to a multitude of shops as well as the famous fish market. It is, by far, one of the most impressive sites in the city. Get your camera ready to take photos from the perfect vantage point of the bridge from one of the docks along the canal!
