What to expect

Discover Venice, it's unmatched beauty and unique atmosphere in one single day.
You'll get all the assistance you need to organize your day during the train ride, but once you've arrived in Venice you'll be free to visit on your own; you can discover all the main attractions and picturesque views at your own personal pace. The perfect day in Venice may be a pairing of exciting tourist sights and time spent relaxing at the slower, stress-free pace. Embrace the city's architectural beauty while you enjoy an espresso or a glass of Prosecco from the surrounding Veneto wine country. You can wander the city, losing yourself in the maze of side-streets and canals, or visit its numerous World Heritage Sites: Venice is a unique artistic achievement.
The city is built on 118 small islands and seems to float on the waters of the lagoon, composing an unforgettable landscape whose beauty inspired Canaletto, Guardi, Turner and many other painters. The lagoon of Venice also has one of the highest concentrations of masterpieces and outstanding monuments in the world: San Marco, Palazzo Ducale, San Zanipolo, San Giorgio Maggiore, and many more. Also, a visit inside St. Mark's Basilica is an absolute must. Piazza San Marco was constructed in the 9th century and changed with the times, transforming into the magnificent Square you see today. The Basilica is considered one of the most important examples of Byzantine architecture in the world and it is known for its opulent design and gilded interior mosaics. Your skip-the-line admission ticket will allow you to save time as you head directly into the Basilica.
Included in your experience is also a vaporetto ride: a vaporetto is a Venetian water taxi that takes both locals and visitors to the places they need to go throughout the city. Because the canals are the easiest way to traverse the city, vaporettos have long been the most efficient mode of transportation, aside from walking. Riding in the front offers the best views. Have your camera ready to snap a lot of great pictures as you travel down the breathtaking canals of Venice. At the end of your day, you'll return to the train station to head back to Rome
