Experience the best of Venice in 2.5 hours, leaving you ample time to wander down romantic canal sidestreets and enjoy yourself without any need to rush!
Begin your tour in St. Mark's Square, the biggest square in Venice and home to the magnificent Basilica, Bell Tower and Doge’s Palace. Skip the line and enter St. Mark's Basilica. The church dominates the square with its impressive facade, but the inside is even more stunning. You'll soon understand why this church is nicknamed "the Church of Gold", as your guide explains the jaw-dropping interior decor.
Continue admiring the Rialto Bridge, as much a symbol of Venice as St. Mark's Basilica. Initially built from old boats, the unstable bridge was rebuilt in 1500. On one side of the bridge is the Rialto Market, an area famous for its fish market, cicchetti bars ad mask shops. Here you will enjoy the best view of the Grand Canal.
Conclude your tour of Venice's highlights with a gondola ride. Your local guide will leave you with a trusted gondolier who will show you Venice from a whole different angle - from the water. When your gondola ride ends, you'll be dropped off a few minutes walk from St. Mark's Square.
