San Polo e Santa Croce
One tour across two sestieri discovering Venice’s heart.
This is what makes this tour unique
A tour quiz that will take you to Rialto, where there once was one of the world’s richest markets, which made Venice a powerful and cosmopolitan city. From the majestic Frari Basilica to the brotherhoods’ small living quarters, following a route that sometimes will feel like a maze of narrow alleys. Don’t get lost and don’t stop at any of the numerous bacari along the way, or you might not reach the end of the tour.
