A private Venice shore excursions from the main cruise terminal
A private guided tour directly from the cruise terminal to the centre of the city by private water taxi.
Venice is a city made in the water and you couldn't understand completely its own double nature, if you don't discover it from the water!
In this tour you'll visit the most famous highlights of Venice- as Saint Mark square, the Saint Mark Basilica, the Doge's Palace, the bridge of sighs, campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo and Rialto.
From the cruise terminal we'll get to Saint Mark square in a private water taxi, crossing the lagoon of Venice.
In Saint Mark square we'll visit at the millenary church of Saint Mark (from April to October you'll skip the line), admiring the incredible golden mosaics.
Afer the square we'll start to discover the real Venice, crossing charming bridges, walking in dark narrow streets.
We'll see the famous bridge of sighs and you'll discover why it has this particular name;we'll go to the Castello district, visiting the nice "Campo Santa Maria Formosa", and its beautiful architectures.
Later we'll get to Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo, decorated with a bronze monument by Verrocchio (Leonardo da Vinci's teacher).
Our tour will end at the Rialto Bridge, admiring the most beautiful road of the world.

Francesca was an excellent tour guide, very informative and with a great sense of humour. Her English was very good and she clearly described what we were seeing. I would definitely use Francesca again.
