St Mark's Square, the Golden Basilica, the off-the-beaten tracks, Murano Island and the Venetian Lagoon


The tour features all of the most important sights of Venice, those you should not miss at all. You will begin with an overview of the most important monuments in the heart of Venice: the Bridge of Sighs, the Doges Palace, the Bell Tower and the Clock Tower.
We'll visit the Church of Saint Mark and admire the glow of its outstanding Byzantine mosaics (about 2 acres). In the Church, we will see the Golden Screen encrusted with almost 2000 precious stones.
The tour will continue walking through the backstreets "far from the madding crowd". We'll see one of the most interesting monumental areas of the city, with the famous monument of Colleoni by Verrocchio (Leonardo's master).
Then, it will be time to board a luxury boat and take a ride through the Venetian lagoon to discover its natural features, and you will eventually reach the Island of Murano to see how the outstanding world famous glass is produced. You will see the celebrated glass masters shaping with incredible ability.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful time with Cinzia as we toured Venice and then Murano. We had a great time walking where the locals walk and seeing some beautiful churches, fountains and towers. The glass factory history as well as the specifics on the tour was fascinating. Cinzia is also very flexible which helped us out tremendously! Great tour, Cinzia!! Thank you!!!!
