    • Meet the Tour guide at the agreed-upon location and begin with your tour. 
    • Start the tour at Campo di San Giacomo dell’Orio, where one can still breathe in a genuine Venetian atmosphere. 
    • Visit the Church with its magnificent wooden vaulted ceiling at "Carena di Nave" and a masterful altarpiece by Lorenzo Lotto.
    • Reach the renowned Scuola Grande di San Giovanni Evangelista, sitting just outside typical tour routes. Expose its hidden history with its artistic and architectural peculiarities. 

    • Cross the Ponte delle Tette (Bridge of Tits) into Calle delle Carampane, the ‘red light’ district of 16th century Venice, with its debauched tales of famous harlots and strict Senators.

    • Continue to Campiello Degli Albrizzi, and take a moment to admire the Albrizzi Palace, which is to this day owned by the Albrizzi family since its construction in the 17th century. 

    • Arrive at Rialto, and focus on the area's role over the years since its establishment as the first settlement of the city and the curious stories of its history.

    • Stop at a winery founded in 1462 that is now the classic Venetian ‘Bacaro’. In this winery, one does not stand but rather leans on the exquisite wooden counter, one does not drink spritz but rather accompanies a fine wine with delicious “Francobollo” (stamp-sized) nibbles, paninetti, and traditional appetizers: Cicchetti, baby octopus, cuttlefish, cod, cheese, vegetables and meatballs.
