Venice Sightseeing Walking Tour with a Local Guide

325 reviews
Packed to the rafters with sights, Venice is a city where time passes fast. Don't waste a second getting lost amid bridges and crowds and instead explore with a guide to discover the highlights and history in minimal time. See the Rialto Bridge and gems, such as the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, where many Venetian doges were laid to rest. Choose from a 15-person small-group tour or a private option.

The two marble&granite pillars overlooking the lagoon are surmounted by the statues of the city’s two patrons: the winged lion, symbol of St. Mark the Evangelist and St. Todaro, the city’s first protector.

Nothing special. You can see them when you get to Piazza San Marco. These are iconic figures in the history of Venezia

"2 or 3 columns with a statue Some people believe however that there was supposed to be a third column besides the ones with San Teodoro and the San Marco lion. Apparently, three columns were delivered by boat to Venice in 1172. During the process of moving them from the boat to the shore, one column fell overboard into the lagoon. A team of researchers has recently started to search the lagoon between the Marciana library and the Ponte della Paglia (in front of the Bridge of Sighs). And who knows? Maybe the city of Venice will soon have a third granite column." This has been lifted from the Venice Insider ... a place well worth finding out some intimate extra details on San Marco. Whats the connection with David Bowie?

These two wonderful columns seems to symbolize the door of majestic square of San Marco . The column of San Marco with its winged lion symbol of Serenissima and the column of San Teodoro depicted to kill a dragon . They are here since medieval period.

Buzzing place in the middle of Venice - St. Mark square. Impressive columns with statues that you cannot miss.
