If you are interested in art, history and local culture choose our Venice Art & History tours.

Venice is one of the cities with the greatest concentration of artistic treasures in the world. Masterpieces located in  every corner of the city. Add to that the fact that the city itself is a work of art, and you will understand why even Venetians themselves continue to discover its hidden treasures.

The history of Venice reveals the importance that art had in the past also as a means of political communication. Venice was for centuries one of the richest cities in Europe, a commercial crossroads between East and  West.

Venice was inhabited and ruled by wealthy merchants who for centuries were the main buyers of works of art. Masterpieces to enrich their homes, public buildings and  churches in the city. As a result, Venetian artists and craftsmen were among the best in Europe.

With our tours you will discover the places where the great mercantile emporium of Venice was located: Rialto. The area is surrounded by the institutional buildings responsible for the management and control of commercial activities. On the ohter hand the churches were the places where the merchants went and prayed to be able to conclude honest and fruitful business.

Many of the masterpieces of our city  are still found in their original places. You can choose to visit the palace of one of the richest Venetian families. You will admire the splendid decorations created by the most famous artists of the Baroque period.
