walls of its most famous landmarks; the Basilica and its
Byzantine heritage, the Doge's Palace and its adjoining prisons,
that retain the true secrets to comprehend how a city built on
swamps became one of the most enlightened cities of the western
world, and learn how all of a sudden fate turned its back on her.
Then, leave the square to discover the "real Venice",
enter a labyrinth of narrow passageways and alleys where a
magical city of meandering canals punctuated by delicate bridges
awaits you… and through the sights and the historical
narrations learn how illustrious venetians, the likes of
Casanova and Marco Polo, and more common citizens made this city
of stone a vibrant and magical place. And of course, discover
how Venice is today and how it is to live in the most beautiful
city of the world, though not the most practical!
