The Fenice

born by public announcement in 1792, not without controversy, as the ideal of a theater was realized republican who proposed effective equality of stages and communicated his rigor through austerity of ornaments. The theater has undergone some fires and subsequent reconstructions, the last one, in chronological order, that in 2003.

The Bridge of Sighs,
called in this way in the nineteenth century, because the prisoners who passed from the courts to the prisons, looking out of the windows of the bridge and seeing the wonderful view of the lagoon and the island of S.Giorgio, they sighed knowing they would most likely never see sunlight again.

The Ducal Palace,
masterpiece of Gothic art, structured in a grandiose stratification of constructive and ornamental elements: from ancient foundations to the fourteenth-fifteenth century structure of the whole, to the conspicuous Renaissance inserts, to the sumptuous signs manneristic. It is made up of three large buildings which have incorporated and unified previous buildings.

The itinerary can be carried out by vaporetto (the means of public transport), in particular line number 1 or 82 which they sail along the Grand Canal offering interesting and breathtaking views.

The Rialto Bridge,
the most famous of the bridges spanning the Grand Canal. Established in stone and with a single arch, it was built based on a design by Antonio da Ponte, between 1588 and 1591. The construction was difficult given the conditions of instability and the height of the Grand Canal seabed. The structure, very similar to that of the previous wooden bridge, consists of two inclined ramps, with shops on both sides, covered by a porch. Back when Venice was a maritime power, sailing and traded in much of the known world, large merchant ships stopped here from many countries to unload and sell their goods wholesale.
