Trip Operator: Ramblers Walking Holidays
Guided Walking Holidays Venice - La Serenissima The great double bend of the Grand Canal is lined with the impressive Palazzi of Venices merchants spanning 800 years and now repurposed. The lesser canals and quiet walkways often evade the day-tripper but well have time to explore the nooks and crannies seeing something of how real Venetians live. The boat journey to the outer islands is an experience in itself. See master craftsmen making the famous Murano glass into flowers, indented leaves, and multi-coloured ornaments, the coloured houses of Burano- home to lace making, the cathedral on tranquil Torcello Everything moves by boat - how many different things will you see Amazon parcels, a grand piano? This is the city of Titian, Tintoretto and other Venetian greats whose art can be found in the buildings and churches for which they were painted. Works by Palladio the great influence on Western Architecture include San Giorgio and the Redentore churches with their unusual double interlocking triangular pediments. We also take the train inland for a day€ross the plains of the Veneto to Padua once part of the Venetian Republic. It is the home to one of the first Universities, the exotic Basilica of San Antonio with its minaret like spires and Byzantine domes, the renowned Scrovegni Chapel with its stunning frescoes by Giotto and much more. The time will pass all too quickly!
