What makes this tour unique?
Preferential access to the gardens of Venice, which are mostly private gardens in sometimes even very exclusive environments, where you enjoy the silence and peace of these green oasis
Enter a few “Bacari” (typical bars), where you can feel “a little Venetian” tasting “cicchetti” ( like tapas ) and “ombre” (glasses) of wine.
Discover the less crowded and more characteristic Cannaregio district, because it is still residential and relax with new friends.
Crossing the public garden Savorgnan and the Jewish ghetto we reach and visit the private garden of Palazzo Rizzo Patarol, today the location of the Grand Hotel dei Dogi, where once there was a botanical garden replaced by a romantic English garden full of secluded corners to discover.
At the end of the visit a coffee break will be awaiting us!
Few steps along the Contarini foundation and behind the splendid facade of the homonymous palace (former residence of the Cardinal and Bishop Gaspare Contarini, buried in the nearby Church Madonna dell’Orto), two of the most famous secret gardens of Renaissance Venice are located.
Wonderful view of the islands of Murano and S. Michele from the Casino of Spirits’ Terrace.
