Walk Through the authentic neighbourhoods of Venice

Dorsoduro is one of the most 'authentic' areas in Venice for those who wish to know the city from the inside out: it is residential, full of activities and beautiful corners where you can meet Venetians doing their everyday shopping, children coming back from school, big "campi" (squares) full of life and students. This livestreamed, interactive Online Experience will allow you to explore these oft-frequented streets of Venice with our expert local tour guide, all from the comfort of your own home. Starting from Campo Santa Margherita, we will see one of the last boats that sell fruit and vegetables from the canals of Venice. We will walk through narrow calli and cross many little bridges to reach the Squero, where you will see people rowing gondolas that look as they used to be made in the 18th Century. Then we will walk to the Accademia Galleries, where you will admire the beautiful Neoclassic facade entrance of one of the most important museums in the city. You will love the majestic view of the Gran Canal, which you will get to admire from the top of the Accademia Bridge. If time permits, we will walk to the massive church of Santa Maria della Salute, where you will hear the story of the plague and the construction of the Church. We will then end this tour with a view of The Church of Saint Mark from the Punta della Dogana (in the past, the seat of the Customs), considered the place where the Grand Canal begin.

Description

Dorsoduro is one of the most culturally authentic pockets of Venice. A residential area, it is always bustling with activities, and you can meet Venetians doing their everyday shopping, children coming back from school, and big "campi" (squares) full of life and students.

Starting from Campo Santa Margherita, we will see one of the last boats that sell fruit and vegetables from the canals of Venice. Walk through narrow calli and cross many little bridges to reach the Squero, where you will see people working on a gondola as they made it in the XVIII Century. 

Then we will walk through the Accademia Galleries to admire the beautiful Neoclassic facade entrance of one of the most important museums in the city. You will love the majestic views of the Grand Canal seen from the top of the Accademia Bridge. 

If time permits, we will walk to the extravagant church of Santa Maria Della Salute, where you will hear the story of the plague and the construction of the church. End your live-streamed online experience admiring the views of Saint Mark, from the Punta Della Dogana (in the past, the seat of the Customs), considered the place from where the Grand Canal begins.

Nicoletta Consentino

I have been working as a professional guide in Venice since 2009. I love this wonderful city, and I have always tried to communicate about its beauty and the delicate equilibrium that supports it to all the people that wanted to discover it with me.

I will show you Venice, its majestic monuments and palaces, the masterpieces kept in its museums and churches, the intimacy of the residential areas, the beauty of the hidden camp and canals; and Mestre, the place where I live, where you will see the castle from the Middle Age, the old Duomo, but also some of the most modern buildings in the city.

From USD 37 / Screen
