Starting fro St. Mark's Square, you will take your way towards Rialto Market. It is one of the most famous highlights of the city and it looks out onto the Grand Canal, whixh you may cross thanks to the gorgeous Rialto Bridge. The area dates back to the ninth century, when a small area in the middle of the Realtine Islands was known as the Rivoaltus, which literally means "high bank". This is where the name comes from, and eventually the entire district became known as "Rialto". The Rialto started flourishing 1097, when Venetian market also moved there. The market started growing since then and remained at its top till today. Do you get how old it is? How much tradition and devotion lie right within this historic place. During your tour of Venice Market your guide will tell you everything about local food and you will even get to taste some deliciuos ingredients.

After properly filling your stomach, you will enjoy the artistic part of your tour. The Church of San Giovanni Elemosinario will be your first stop. It is one of the most famous churches in Venice, designed by Titian and dedicated to Saint John the Almsgiver. The church was founded in 1071, and was completely destroyed by the disastrous Rialto fire in 1514 to be restored in the 16th century in Renaissance style. Then you will head to another beautiful church, the Church of St. James.It is famous for housing the Hunchback of Venice, the Gobbo of Venice.
