With a local guide, knowledgeable about Venice’s past, explore the Rialto, Carampane and San Polo neighborhoods.

Meet your local guide on Rialto Bridge, and set off on your walking tour of Venice. Start with a stroll through the old artisan quarters of the city, better known as the Rialto, an area that surrounds the Grand Canal. Historically and presently Venice’s main trade area, the Rialto is a bustling district, ever-popular with visitors, traders and locals alike.

After a glimpse of Venice’s hectic side, follow your guide through the labyrinth of enchanting streets and narrow passageways that so many visitors fail to discover. Pass time-worn old bars where merchants have relaxed for centuries, and pass through the so-called ‘castelleto’ area in Carampane, a historical red light district, where Venetian courtesans once worked the streets.

Hear about these well-heeled and independent women, as well as their questionable morals, and learn of famous and intellectual courtesans such as Veronica Franco, a poet who counted literates and other eminent Italians as her friends. Stop for photos on the naughtily nicknamed Ponte delle Tette (Bridge of Tits), and hear how its name was given after the courtesans who were encouraged to model topless, touting their ‘wares,’ on the canals.

Pass Palazzo dei Camerlenghi in the San Polo neighborhood, and hear how the beautiful Renaissance palace was once a feared prison for tax evaders. In between viewing quirky sites around the area, learn about Venice in days of old and what life is like today for modern-day Venetians.

Your walking tour finishes with a visit to the Frari church, one of the city’s true lesser-known gems. Tucked away on an unassuming San Polo side street, the Gothic building is home to fascinating artwork by Bellini, Canova and Titian — three of the most influential Italian artists of the High Renaissance period. Pay your entrance fee, and step inside the church to marvel at the art for the last half hour of your tour.
