Grand Canal, gondola and more!
If you are staying in Venice just for one day or on a cruise you need to see as much as you can without the stress of putting together the perfect tour.
This is the best tour you can book not to miss all the nice things Venice has to offer.
Start exploring Venice from the water which is its basic element on a 1 hour panoramic private boat tour is important to understand how and why Venice was built long time ago on a such difficult environment, understanding how the daily life takes place.
Highlights are of course not to be missed and the magnificent St. Mark's square will give you the occasion to learn about the history of the long life Serenissima Republic.
But Venice is more than this and you will walk out of the beaten tracks in order to melt with locals and taste a yummy snack with a drink.
Last but not least a gondola ride is the perfect conclusion before returning to the fold.
We will start with a 1 hour panoramic boat tour to admire Venice from the water.
A stop on the island of Murano can be done in case you're interested in seeing how glass is still blown.
Before reaching St. Mark's square, where all the Highlights are, we will stop in a pastry shop or a local tavern for a yummy break .
Relax once again during a 30 minute gondola ride across the narrow canals around St. Mark's and then enjoy a nice walk to the Rialto area passing by Marco Polo's house before getting back to your place.
