If you want to visit a different and fascinating Venice, if you especially like Venetian Renaissance painting, don't miss this tour in the heart of the St Polo district.
I will pick you up at the exit of your cruise ship and very comfortably seated in a private boat taxi I will accompany you to the Franciscan Church dei Frari, one of the most imposing in Venice, in Venetian Gothic style, which houses exceptional works of art, such as Titian's Assunta, Bellini's Sacra Conversazone, paintings by Bartolomeo e Alvise Vivarini, sculptures by Donatello and Alessandro Vittoria, tombs of doges and artists such as Titian and Antonio Canova.
At the exit of the church there will be your gondola waiting for you for a 30-minute ride through the small canals to the big canal and back.
Just next door we will then visit the famous Scuola Grande di San Rocco, Tintoretto's absolute masterpiece with more than 60 paintings by this painter in their original site, an opportunity to get to know and understand better this genius of the Renaissance.
Before taking the boat taxi back to the port there will be an icecream break at a gelateria well known for the quality of its production.

I have been a guide in Venice since 2012 and I love my job, I love to share with the visitors who arrive in Venice but I also like to surprise them as only Venice knows how to do, I love to show them the secret places that this unique city shelters and hides from most of the tourists.
It is always a privilege and an honour to welcome you and lead you to discover Venice, trying to adapt the visits to your interests, your pace and your time.
