Live Virtual Tour 1

LIVE VIRTUAL TOUR | Live Stream Walking Tour of Venice
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero

Join us for a LIVE STREAM Virtual Tour – in REAL TIME – from Venice, Italy. We shall walk along the canals and through the back streets of the great “city on the sea” in order to admire its beauty, but also to see how the city is coming back to life after months of lock down. Stroll across the Rialto Bridge and along the Grand Canal, wander down the labyrinth of “calle” near San Marco, admire the famous Bovolo staircase, and then marvel at the majesty of St. Mark’s Square. See and appreciate the beauty of Venice in REAL TIME!

 

Live Virtual Tour 2

LIVE VIRTUAL TOUR | Exclusive Live Stream Visit from Inside the Basilica of St. Mark in Venice
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero

The Basilica of San Marco was originally constructed in the 9th century CE to house the mortal remains of St. Mark the Evangelist. The style of the church is the perfect marriage of eastern and western Christian architecture, showcasing the world’s most extensive and beautiful program of mosaic decoration. Join us for this EXCLUSIVE LIVE STREAM Virtual Tour from inside the great basilica where we will enjoy a dramatic illumination of the mosaics, have rare access to the Baptistry, admire the exotic architecture of the building, wander up to the high altar, and gaze in awe of the sparkling Pala d’Oro. ALL IN REAL TIME!!!!

 

Live Virtual Tour 3

LIVE VIRTUAL TOUR | The Art of Glass Making in Murano – Exclusive Live Stream Demonstration
Presented by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero

It is not known exactly when the art of glass making began in Venice, except that it has been confined by law to the island Murano since 1291. Since then, Murano glass has been celebrated worldwide for its craftsmanship, creativity, and originality. Murano glass is still made by hand by a team of artisans known as a “piazza” working around a glass master who sits in his “scagno” (studio) while directing and working the glass with his team. Join us for this EXCLUSIVE LIVE STREAM demonstration direct from a historic glass factory in Murano and watch the magic of glass blowing IN REAL TIME!!!!
