Byzantine Venice and Gondola

Codice Tour: T135

The universe of Venice "Repubblica Serenissima" - The thrill of Venice on a gondola ride - The treasures of the golden Basilica.

 

Part One

Visit to the monuments of Venice, city of supremacy among history and power

We are right in the heart of the city to visit the most famous locations in the history of Venice. The splendour of the thousand-year history of the Republic of Venice flows before us: its civilisation, enlightened government and supremacy over the seas and the Mediterranean nations.

 

Part Two

Travel by water: the Grand Canal and the canals of Venice

Navigating a gondola through the lagoon and its canals is an irreplaceable experience, where you can become acquainted with Venice from its truest perspective. The natural rocking movement of the gondola gives the gondolier the profile of a dancer, emphasising his ability to flex his body in synchronization with the water's movement, down waterways where he and his passengers will never be bored.

 

Part Three

Visit St Mark's Basilica and discover its treasures

As an exclusive source of pride, Venice has always exhibited the affluence of St Mark's Basilica, a perfect reflection of its endeavours and its proximity to the Orient. Here Venetian art is a sumptuous amalgam of Byzantine, Romanesque and Gothic elements in celebration of God and the endeavours of the Republic of Venice. The five domes of Oriental inspiration enclose fabulous treasures: precious white marbles, blue enamels and pure gold mosaics. On the central terrace there are four bronze prancing horses in front of the façade.
