Set off on foot for an exploration of Venice that provides an intimate look at the city’s most impressive attractions. Begin with a tour through the ornate chambers of Doge’s Palace. Climb the famous Golden Staircase and stand within the Great Council Chamber graced by the paintings of Tintoretto and Veronese. Cross the Bridge of Sighs that leads to the old palace prison before continuing to ever-lively St. Mark’s Square. Here, history beckons from every corner while artists, musicians and street entertainers do their best to woo the generosity of strangers. Of course, this is also home to Venice’s most glorious landmark, St. Mark’s Cathedral. Learn about the cathedral’s rich history and enjoy a guided interior visit. Examine exquisite blue and gold mosaics, marble floors and walls, and massive pillared arches. Afterwards, visit a nearby glass showroom for a short demonstration and the chance to do a little shopping.
