Venice is a city of enchanted water mazes and bewildering beauty. It’s easy to get lost in its winding alleys, so let us take care of your itinerary while you admire all of the city’s highlights in the company of an expert English-speaking tour guide in just a few hours!
Your tour will start in Piazza San Marco (St Mark’s Square), the heart of Venice. Overlooking the lagoon, this picturesque square is lined with old arcaded buildings built in the Venetian Renaissance style; they house plush eighteenth-century cafés filled with delicious treats and coffee and live music.
Thanks to our Skip-the-Line bookings you will avoid wasting time and will delve straight into the majestic Basilica of St Mark. Your expert guide will tell you all there is to know about the history and secrets of Venice’s most prominent church, opulently decorated with dazzling Byzantine-style mosaics, which transfix believers lifting them up to a heavenly world.
Next, as the gentle waves of the lagoon ripple against the shores, you will continue your tour along the canals, rimmed with stunning Gothic-style buildings with tented roofs topped by pinnacles. We will pass famous landmarks such as the bustling shops of the Rialto Bridge and the elegant Ponte dei Sospiri (the Bridge of Sighs).
If you want to add a touch of mystery to your tour, why not add an extra hour to visit the Secret Itinerary through the Doge’s Palace? This option allows you to wind your way across dimly-light dungeons, torture chambers, and narrow staircases. The darkest secrets of Venice’s history are hidden in these Rooms.
