3 hrs 30 min, half day walking tour
Walking in Venice in the central part of town during the tourist season means to get caught in huge crowds which fade the uniqueness of the city above all in the San Marco and Rialto areas.
Though there is a much less touristy part of Venice where you’ll get its singularity at its best, and that is the very end of the Castello district. Forget then about the souvenir stores and the crowds and immerse yourself in a remote place and start your journey through the Venice you always wanted to see.
On the same time get to know also a couple of great architectural and art features passing by the main Arsenal’s gate and the church of Saint Francis with its cloisters.
As a major feature of this tour you will enter and visit the workshop of a local artist specialized in marbling paper a printing technique imported in Europe from Turkey and widespread in the old continent in the 18thcentury. The artist will produce his work for you as he explains all about this unique artistry.
This tour is done upon the artisan availability.
