This art history course offers you the possibility to join guided tours through the city. It’s not easy to find a city as full of artistic and architectural masterpieces as Venice. In every sestiere, campo or calle there is something that is waiting to be discovered. Thanks to the experience of our school’s art teachers, you can know in details and consequently appreciate more the works of famous painters (Bellini, Carpaccio, Tintoretto, Veronese, Tiziano, Tiepolo, Canaletto) and architecture from Palladio to Carlo Scarpa. Thus, not only the most known areas such as Saint Mark’s square and Rialto, but also churches, museums, Academies of Fine Arts, Scuole, palaces, The Ghetto, etc.
This course takes place from Monday to Friday and the lessons are held in the morning or in the afternoon for three hours. Lessons are held in Italian.
