All the best of Venice Highlights and St.Mark's square in a 6 hours long tour


From anywhere on Venice island the tour starts with a panoramic boat ride to better discover this unique city. Venice is on the water and this will give you the chance to better understand how life goes on here: on the Grand Canal and on some minor canals.

After the boat tour we will explore together a lesser known and mainly residential part of Venice where you will learn about Venice origin and daily life. We will pass by the Rialto area, commercial hub of Venice in the past.

Time for lunch lunch will be given and then the tour continues with the visit of the very heart of Venice: St. Mark's square.

The square was for centuries the civic forum of Venice and encompasses the most important buildings in town. We will visit St. Mark's Basilica with its beautiful mosaics indoor.

At the end of the tour all the indications to go back to your place will be given.
