Description

A walking tour of the "calli" will give you the chance to discover, not far from St Mark's Square, Venice's hidden masterpieces of architecture and painting. Meet up with your guides on Seven Martyrs Quay. You will visit the inside of the Byzantine-style Santa Maria Formosa Church, the Santa Maria dei Miracoli Church, a little gem of Venetian Renaissance, and finally the Santi Giovanni e Paolo Church, whose interior contains the impressive series of funerary monuments of the Doges, masterpieces of the heroes of the Republic and Renaissance sculptures. On your way back, you will get to admire the Church of San Zaccaria (exteriors only), built in the Gothic and Renaissance styles and dedicated to St. Zacharias, father of John the Baptist, whose relics are kept inside. Then you will pass by the Santa Maria della Pieta Church (exteriors only), which was founded in 1346. This orphanage for girls was renowned throughout Europe for its music in the 17th and 18th centuries. Return to the boat on foot.
