A 2-hour panoramic overview of Venice "essentials"


Let me give you a panoramic overview of Venice "essentials".

During the tour basic information about Venice's history and the most important monuments that are considered MUST SEE attractions will be provided.

St. Mark's square with its enchanting Cathedral housing the relics of Mark the Evangelist, the Belltower and the imposing Floral Gotic style Doge's Palace.

An amazing view on St. Mark's basin where boats and galleys used to stop in the past.

The Rialto Bridge which was the first bridge to be built across the Grand Canal.

Tour is external only in order to maximize your time and get the best of Venice.

Itinerary

We will meet up in St. Mark's Square and will examine all the important monuments in it: The 2 Big Columns, The Doge's Palace and the Bridge of Sighs, St. Mark's Basilica, The Clock Tower, Marciana Library, Procurators' Offices and Napoleonic Wing.

After that we will leave the religious and political heart of Venice to reach the ancient commercial hub of the town known as Rialto.

We will leave the crowd behind for a while in order to get an amazing view of the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge.

During this tour you will be supplied with a useful map and are given information about museums, exhibitions, concerts, where to eat, how to move around - and what to avoid!
