Discover the most authentic Venice, the part less frequented by tourists, thanks to this walking-tour between the Sestiere Castello and St. Mark’s one. You will visit suggestive and little known corners that will transport you to an atmosphere of the other times.
A walk, starting from the Royal Gardens of St. Mark’s Square, which gradually takes you from the crowded St. Mark’s area to the quiet Sestiere Castello. This area of Venice is characterized by having preserved intact its most authentic soul, made up of scenes of everyday life, slow rhythms and little-known corners. There are also churches that unexpectedly hold works of great value.
Along the way you can, for example, admire the imposing Church of San Zaccaria and its altarpiece, the Madonna Enthroned with Child and Saints, made in 1505 by Bellini. Also interesting is the Renaissance style church of San Francesco della Vigna, designed by Sansovino and Palladio, and connected to the life of St. Mark.
From here you will not miss the passage to the Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo, one of the largest in the city, and to its homonymous Basilica. In front of this one, the enormous equestrian monument of Bartolomeo Colleoni by Verrocchio and the monumental entrance to the Civil Hospital will not go unnoticed.
Another fundamental stop, before reaching Campo di Santa Maria Formosa and then St. Mark’s Square, is certainly the Libreria Acqua Alta. This, with over ten thousand books, is considered one of the most beautiful bookshops in the world. Books in scattered order, ancient boats and cats on the shelves will give your visit an unforgettable style.
