Description

A cruise on the Thames to Greenwich, to visit the village declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. The tour, in Italian, is in program on Sundays morning from 9.00 am to 12.45 pm. Greenwich is a real neighborhood and you will get there by boat in about half an hour just like Henry the VIII, who was born in Greenwich, did. Admire London symbolic buildings  from the river - the Houses of Parliament with Big Ben, London Eye, St Paul's Cathedral, the Globe Theatre, the Tower of London, and Tower Bridge. Once you arrive at our destination you'll be welcomed by famous views of Canaletto and the beautiful Cutty Sark ship, which supplied tea to London and is a museum today. England is an island, so it has always has been tied to the sea. Don't miss a visit to the modern National Maritime Museum where you will see theinternational section devoted to the hero, Horatio Nelson, who was killed at Trafalgar in 1805. Inside the grandiose Naval College, your guide will show you the Painted Hall, one of the most beautiful frescoed halls in the world, and will talk about the queens consorting there who occupied the Queen's House, the first neo-classical building in England. All this will serve as a preamble to walk in the magnificent royal park where even today you can see the deer, and once you get up the hill, enjoy a truly spectacular view of London. At Greenwich the hemispheres will meet and the guide will explain why Greenwich was chosen as the starting point of the meridians and how longitude was measured, one of the biggest scientific challenges that dominated the XVIII century. The tour of Greenwich with a cruise on the Thames is the only tour in Italian led by a qualified Blue Badge guide.
