G1 - GIUDECCA ART & INDUSTRY
A walk discovering the island of Giudecca, located opposite Dorsoduro district, and its imposing industrial past. It has to do with a stroll, without additional fees, that starts by the vaporetto stop named Sacca Fisola (vaporetto n° 2) and ends by Redentore Church. You will observe industrial architecture, which the most magnificent example is Stucky Mill, which contributed to transforming Venice, already in the XIX century, into a pre-industrial manufactoring centre. The several buildings you will see have been now reconsidered and adapted to new functionalities. Strolling among residential areas you can admire imposing religious buildings and a breath taking view of the southern lagoon.
Tour duration: 2,5 hours
G2 - GIUDECCA RENAISSANCE EXPERIENCE
During the tour you will visit two Renaissance churches. Starting by the vaporetto stop named Palanca (vaporetto n° 2) and ending by San Giorgio Maggiore Church, located on the same named island. Redentore Church is the first famous votive temple of the city, built to memorialize the end of the terrible plague in 1575. The church faces the water of the Giudecca channel and is the destination of the pilgrimage every July. The second part of the tour suggests the visit of the Temple of San Giorgio Maggiore, after a quick passage on board a vaporetto to reach another island. An important and prestigious European cultural focus point. From this position you will be delighted to see the unforgettable view of Piazza San Marco.......for the bravest it is possible to "climb up" to the top of the famous bell tower.
Additional costs: entrance ticket to Basilica of Redentore and San Giorgio Maggiore
Tour duration: 2 hours
