Venice Insights and Highlights: a first orientation

This first-timer Venice orientation leads us first to the great theater of Venetian history: St. Mark's Square, once the political and governmnetal center of the city, exuding glory, power and concealing intrigues of its past. We’ll also visit the area beyond the Rialto Bridge, formerly one of the most renowned financial centers in Europe, and today a lively food market and and still a favorite meeting spot for many Venetians.

We’ll also walk through some areas of the city that still exhibit their original flair and charm, discovering along the way how Venice emerged from a mushy swamp into a maze of bridges, alleyways, squares and canals, still today overlooked by the once splendid, but still captivating facades of ancient merchant palaces.
