Passing through the shaped Canallazzo, nick name for the Grand Canal, you will really see Venice as it was at its height of power during the Serenissima Republic. After the hour long ride, the walking tour begins at the Accademia and takes you through the hidden streets, passing the Church of San Sebastiano where Veronese, one of Venice’s most famous Renaissance painters, frescoed all the ceilings and was buried. You will also pass by the Squero where the Venetians once built their gondolas.
