Venice

This combination tour is just right for those craving a full Venice immersion - a tour not only to see Venice, but to experience the city through its glorious past.

On our VIP tour of Venice, we'll start with a beautiful walking tour taking us among the most hidden and peaceful corners of Venice.

An unforgettable tour to discover Venice through its narrow alleyways, countless bridges, and picturesque squares, still the heart of Venetian people's social life.

We'll discover the famous sites as well as hidden gems mixed with interesting facts about the city of the Serenissima and its everlasting history.

The first highlight of our walking tour is St. Mark’s Square, with a detailed description of the majestic St. Mark's Basilica, the elegant Doge's Palace, the Clock Tower, and the Procuratie.

From St. Mark's Square we'll proceed to Campo Santa Maria Formosa, where we will admire the SS. Giovanni e Paolo church with its famous Pantheon. Then we'll follow the Scuola Grande di San Marco, also known as the Great School of Charity. Last but not least, we'll head back to St. Mark’s and admire the Malibran Theatre, step through the famous Mercerie, once the pulsing heart of commercial life back in Venice's heyday, now the main shopping district between Rialto Bridge and St. Mark’s Square.

The first part of the tour will take place outside and does not include admission to any local sites.

We'll follow up the first half with a visit to one of the most famous symbols of Venice: The Doge's Palace, one of Venice's most iconic buildings. For centuries, it has represented the seat of the Venetian political power. In its majestic rooms, the Duke and his Council ruled the fate of the Most Serene Republic for centuries. Today, the symbol of Venice and its mercantile might is still standing in all its beauty and glory.

Your admission ticket grants you access without waiting in line. A personal audio headset is included.

Next we'll visit St. Mark's Basilica, a beautiful example of Byzantine architecture fusing Eastern and Western architectural styles. Here, we'll learn more about the everlasting history of Venice, about St. Mark and how his bones came to rest here. Surrounded by the Basilica's gold mosaics and marble inlays, our professional guide will take you through the history and features of this unique architectural masterpiece. Among the priceless treasures shielded in the Basilica, we'll have the chance to admire the Pala d'Oro, a fine example of Byzantine art with thousands of gems and precious stones, and the Treasury, a splendid display of religious art.

Tips:
Please wear appropriate clothes to enter the Basilica (no bare knees or shoulders). For security reasons, backpacks are not allowed inside the Basilica (free deposit available in Calle San Basso).
