Dorsoduro Starting from the small campo of Santa Maria del Giglio where we'll catch a gondola across the Grand Canal in order to step foot on the Dorsoduro district. This is the edge of it and it is shaped like the prow of a boat and offers vistas on Giudecca and Grand Canal as they merge into St.Mark Basin . There we visit the most famous Baroque church of Venice: Santa Maria della Salute that houses the paintings of Titian, Salviati and Tintoretto. Passing the house of Peggy Guggenheim, today a world class modern art museum, we continue in the direction of the Zattere, the most popoular place for a promenade in Venice . From there we'll reach an ancient gondola workshop. On the lively campo of Santa Margherita stands the Medieval church of the Carmelites that preserves a couple of Venetian masterpieces by Lorenzo Lotto and Cima da Conegliano. A few steps away we'll visit the church of San Sebastiano , decorated entirely with frescoes by Paolo Veronese, where the tour will end
