In Venice, the Palladio's signature is tangible on the harmonious shapes of the holy architectures of the Serenissima.
From the colorful and vibrant heart of Rialto Bridge, this tour leads you to the exploration of a devout Venice trough the peculiar places starting from Sestrier Castello, where the peaceful romanic cloister of San Francesco della Vigna genuinely converses with the Palladian forms of the facade.
After the first visit, it's time for a new prospective on Venice: from the islands of San Giorgio Maggiore and the Giudecca, the city appears magnificent from the sea, as seen by every visitor for centuries.
The churches of San Giorgio, Redentore and Zitelle narrate the greatest Palladian holy masterpieces and the religious life of the venetian people on the other side of Canal Grande among Villas, Palaces and secret gardens.
