After a whirlwind of art and culture, ready yourself for experiencing the Venetian life that you’ve just seen from the paintings in real life. 

The morning tour includes, after ca rezzonico , the visit of a famous Palazzo with the count  —whose illustrious family heritage includes ambassadors, tradesmen, and soldiers whose origins date back to the 18th century—invites you for an aperitivo at his family home, the elegant Palazzo . The home was once renowned for its legendary salons, featuring characters from Casanova to Lord Byron, hosted by the gracious noblewoman Marina Querini, wife of the Count . Who better to divulge the layers of history embedded within the sumptuous walls of the palace, than his present-day descendent? Finish the day with a glass of prosecco or spritz on the Count’s private balcony, while overlooking the stunning view below together. Nowhere else in the world will you be able to experience history as a living, breathing, thing, like you will in the unforgettable, magical city of Venice!

The afternoon tour includes, after ca rezzonico , the visit of a famous Palazzo with the countess who graciously invites you for an afternoon tea at her storied family home—one that has been carefully passed down from generation to generation— the elegant Palazzo

Built in the classical Renaissance style, the palace not only exemplifies the elaborate architecture of the 16th century, but also features one of the loveliest gardens of Venice—an undiscovered gem right in the middle of the lagoon. Allow the countess to recount the layers of history embedded within the sumptuous walls of the palace, over a cup of tea in her dining room. Nowhere else in the world will you be able to experience history as a living, breathing, thing, like you will in the unforgettable, magical city of Venice!
