Full description
Discover the best of Venice on a private full-day tour with a professional and knowledgeable guide. Following a pickup from your accommodation in Venice, head out to explore the jaw-dropping treasure trove of art and culture. Wander through its atmospheric alleyways and glide down its iconic canals and fall in love with this unbelievably beautiful floating city.   Experience the many faces of Venice. On the first half of the tour, you’ll explore breathtaking sites that speak to the city’s centuries-long status as one of the world’s most important superpowers. Admire the St. Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace – both triumphs of the Maritime Republic that stand spectacular guard over the monumental Grand Canal rich with fabulous artworks. After lunch, get off the beaten track and see a different side beyond the world-famous monuments of the floating city. The city boasts an incredible 150 canals and 400 bridges. Wandering around this never-ending maze is one of the most disorientating experiences on earth. However, it can also be one of the most exhilarating. Get a feel for Venice in all its unpredictable glory and veer off the tourist trail and get lost in its impenetrable maze of backstreets. Wander through picturesque winding alleyways and along narrow waterways. Discover secret piazzas and stunning churches stuffed with masterpieces of Renaissance art. Explore traditional artisan ateliers and a quirky bookshop where the tomes are kept in boats and bathtubs. Take a lazy boat ride down one of Venice’s most picturesque canals, and get the inside track on Venetian cuisine in a traditional bacaro. Experience Venice at its authentic, spectacular best.
