Venice Highlights with Doge's Palace and St Mark's Cathedral


This journey will start from your hotel in Rome via train. We will get on a private wooden water taxi upon arrival and be driven through the Grand Canal and over to the island of Murano for a glass presentation of the historical pieces. Afterwards, we will be taken to Piazza San Marco where I will guide you through the very heart of Venice, as your knowledgeable guide I will point out the city's landmarks, including the Doge's Palace, St. Mark's Basilica, the Campanile and the many arcade buildings around the square.

St. Mark's Basilica - Venice's basilica is a testament to Byzantium's influence on Venice. Included features are gold mosaic arches rising above the carved, Romanesque portal and the rooftop is bedecked with five domes, reminiscent of St. Sophia in today's Istanbul. The basilica's interior features marble floors and walls that blend in exquisite, carpet-like patterns. Gilded mosaic murals, like icons, adorn the walls.

Then ride the train back to Rome together.

Itinerary

This tour includes the famous Doge's Palace - Residence of the Doge and Venice's seat of government the Palace was the example of the Republic's maritime and commercial power. The ornate facade features an arcaded loggia, and your interior tour takes in the famous Golden Staircase, the Great Council Chamber, other historic rooms, and paintings by Tintoretto and Veronese.

A Recent Review of this tour

Wow! Another great guide from Tours By Locals. Mauro is fantastic. He picked up our party of 7 from Arizona at our hotel, got us to the train station with enough time to get breakfast and then we took the train to Venice. Once in Venice, we went to the glass factory where our part yy of 7 had a private tour and the kids all got to blow glass and watch the artisans work. We then toured Venice and had late lunch. He took great care of us and he knows Venice as only an insider would
