Full description
You will join a 1-hour live webinar with a local guide to learn about Venice and its most iconic landmarks. First, the guide will discuss St. Mark’s Basilica, one of the world’s most opulent churches. Learn about the Basilica’s history, see it’s grandeur and learn about the controversial acquisition of it’s relics.

Next is the Rialto Bridge, the oldest bridge in Venice. Rebuilt into its present stone edition in 1591, the wonderful bridge is normally overflowing with tourists, vendors and chaos but your guide will show you how the bridge looks without the crowds.

Then, learn about Venice’s famous gondolas. These small wooden vessels have been guiding Venetians through their hundreds of canals for centuries. Learn how these symbols of romance are built and why they are so popular.

You’ll then be introduced to Doge's Palace. This massive castle is located right next to St. Mark’s Basilica in St. Mark’s Square. It was the political and administrative capitol building of Venice from 1340 until 1797 when Napoleon took the city. 

A short boat ride from Venice are seven small islands that make up Murano. Known for its famous glass making, the area has been creating glass marvels for centuries. Learn how the artisans of Murano stand apart from glassmakers worldwide.

Your guide will use photos, videos and his own expert knowledge to tell you about Venice. At the end, there will be time for a Q&A session to ask any questions you have regarding the information discussed or Venice in general.
