Description

Visit the Venice of Casanova in the company of a guide who will reveal the history and legends surrounding this emblematic figure of 17th-century Venice.

The tour begins in St. Mark’s Square and winds through the shopping streets to Campo Bartolomeo where you can admire the bronze statue of the playwright Carlo Goldoni, a close friend to the mother of Casanova. You will then pass by the Rialto Bridge to reach the San Polo district and visit the Rialto Market.

Your guide will then take you to Castelletto, the red light district of Venice, to visit one of the district's popular taverns where you can enjoy a glass of wine accompanied by Venetian appetizers.

After the tavern, you’ll embark on a gondola ride down the Grand Canal to observe the places that played a significant role in the life of Casanova.

The tour comes to an end at Campo Santa Maria Formosa where you can see the Querini Stampalia Palace, now converted into a Museum.
