What to expect
  • Enjoy the personalized attention of a private tour as you explore the San Polo neighborhood of Venice. Choose from a morning or afternoon tour, and then meet up with your guide near the famous Rialto Bridge.  With an advantageous location along historic shipping routes between the Near East and Western Europe, Venice was at one time a mighty seaport and important commercial hub. Walk among historic merchants’ shops and living quarters as you learn about their brisk trade in items like silk, spices, precious metals and exotic woods. San Polo is also the city’s former red-light district. You’ll hear tales of Venetian ladies of the night, from street walkers to accomplished courtesans who gained prestige among elite artistic and literary circles.   Your tour will conclude with a visit to the impressive, 13th-century Frari church. Admire the imposing Gothic architecture and step inside to view splendid statuary and masterworks of Renaissance art by painters Titian and Bellini.
