Destination: Venice, Italy
Venice is a city in northeastern Italy and the capital of the Veneto region. It is situated on a group of 118 small islands that are separated by canals and linked by over 400 bridges. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Venice is recognized as part of the artistic and architectural patrimony of all humanity. Famous Foods Made with vialone nano rice, pancetta, onion, butter, parsley and surprisingly enough, pea-shell broth! If you notice fresh peas gracing the stands at the Rialto markets (generally mid-to-late spring), you can be sure that it is the right time to sample this dish at a local trattoria.
Our one-hour tour will begin in front of St. Mark’s Basin. We’ll learn how Venetians live in a city surrounded by water, with no cars. We’ll pass in front of the ancient Palace of the Prisons, the Bridge of Sighs and the medieval Doge’s Palace. Upon entering St. Mark’s Square, we will get an appreciation of the nine-centuries old St. Mark’s Basilica decorated with more than 80,000 square feet of golden mosaics. The tour ends at the 300-year-old Cafè Florian, the oldest coffee house in the world. This tour will transport you to a place that has been ranked many times as the most beautiful city in the world.
