Inferno Dan Brown tour in Venice
Venice has a crucial role in Dan Brown’s mystery thriller Inferno. We’ll discover some locations described in the book and jump into the obscure and exciting atmosphere of the rush that brings Robert Langdon and Sienna Brooks to discover their destiny.
Our meeting point will be in front of St. Geremia church, where the relics of St. Lucy are still preserved. From there we’ll cross the northern side of Venice by private motor boat in front of the cemetery island, in order to reach the Arsenal which inspired Dante’s vision of Hell, and where we can read the famous inscription from The Divine Comedy. Using the same boat, we’ll arrive to the port at St. Mark’s, right below the sinister Bridge of Sighs and the famous venetian prisons.
Then we’re going to discover the golden Basilica of St. Mark, and its terrace with the four famous horses, the originals and the copies, the place from where the blind Doge Enrico Dandolo made the call for the Crusade. A short walk will bring us to the Rialto’s area where we’ll visit the ancient Palazzo of the Doge Dandolo.
The tour lasts around 3 hrs. We run the tour every day, and it is ledby a local Venetian guide.
This tour can start from your hotel in Venice or Venice cruise terminal or we can arrange another convenient location to begin the tour.
Please remember not to wear shorts or skirts above your knees and to cover your naked shoulders when you enter in the church – this applies to both men and women.
