Marive Transport is pleased to recommend an itinerary to visit Venice in one day.

On this itinerary, there are so many places of interest and attractions that you absolutely must see! The tour we offer starts from our Terminal in Fondamenta Nove.

Fondamenta Nove is located in the Canareggio district, the largest in Venice and also the most populated. A few steps from our landing point at Fondamenta Nove, there is a wonderful rectangle-shaped field developed in length from north to south. The field owes its name to the historical presence of the Jesuit complex, which occupies the entire eastern side, with the white Baroque facade of the Jesuit Church.

The second stop on this tour is the Rialto Bridge, one of the icons of Venice. The Rialto Bridge is a grandiose work of architecture and engineering, supported by 6,000 wooden poles. It is 48 meters long and 22 meters wide. The original structure was built in the late Middle Ages in wood, while the current stone bridge was designed by Antonio Da Ponte at the end of the 1500s. From the top of the steps of the bridge, you can admire the wonderful landscape of the lagoon and the Grand Canal.

From the Rialto Bridge, in just 5 minutes on foot, you can reach the main square of the city: Piazza San Marco. Piazza San Marco, is located in the San Marco district, full of shop windows, shops, bars and restaurants. Piazza San Marco is the heart of the city of Venice: here, you can admire extraordinary masterpieces of architecture, such as the stupendous Basilica of San Marco, also known as the Golden Cathedral for its extraordinary gold mosaics, the Clock Tower and the Campanile.

Following the Basilica, the Doge’s Palace and then arriving on the Riva degli Schiavoni, from which it is possible to admire, on the other side, the splendid Church of San Giorgio Maggiore, we arrive at Ponte della Paglia.

From the Ponte della Paglia, you can see the famous Bridge of Sighs, an architectural structure rich in friezes and decorations of a historical and biblical nature; the Bridge of Sighs owes its name to its original function: to connect the prisons with the Doge’s Palace. The bridge was crossed by inmates awaiting sentencing and from those small grates they sighed for the sea and the freedom that they would probably never see again.

A few steps from the Bridge of Sighs, is the penultimate stop of this tour: Campo Santa Maria Formosa. Vast, irregular and full of beautiful buildings, the Campo di Santa Maria Formosa is one of the liveliest on the entire island of Venice. Its charm derives in part from its proportions and, in part, from the joyful atmosphere, enlivened by the fruit and vegetable stalls, from the cafes that offer a glimpse into the daily confusion that once characterized every field of the city.

The last stop of the tour is the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo. The Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo is the largest church in Venice. Inside the Basilica there are the tombs of the 27 doges of Venice and paintings by important artists such as Giovanni Bellini, Paolo Veronese and Giovanni Battista Piazzetta.

From the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, the Linea Rosa Terminal in Fondamenta Nove is easily reachable on foot.
