Tour 4: San Marco Square
Welcome to San Marco Square, the only one in Venice that has the honor of being called square because of the size, magnificence, architectural integrity. It’s also called "the living room of Europe". Your gondolier will accompany you telling more about the heart of our city, the cathedral and the bell tower, built between 1156 and 1173, then collapsed and rebuilt entirely in 1902.
In this tour you cannot miss the Basilica della Salute, a baroque church that stands out in the San Marco Basin, built following a vow to the Virgin Mary by the Venetians, grateful to have been freed from the plague. Hold your breath to admire the Bridge of Sighs. Here lovers should not be deceived by the romantic name because this bridge connects the ducal palace with the new prisons and the prisoners sighed consciously looking outside for the last time.
