Get fully acquainted with the city


Visit extensively Venice in one day.

The tour starts with a private boat ride from the bus or train station or, on request, from your hotel. Your first approach to Venice is from the water, the best and real way to get acquainted with this unique city. After an extensive walk throughout the neighbourhood of Castello, featuring impressive buildings as well as hidden corners, we stop for a light lunch, at your best convenience.

After lunch the guide leads you to the bridge of Rialto, the main bridge in town, the only one spanning the Grand Canal in the past. This area was the centre for commerce at the time of the Republic and it is the lively marketplace of the Venetians today.

The tour ends in the square of St. Mark, the very heart of Venice, the can't-miss highlight in town. Your guide gives you a detailed description of its main monuments and leads you into the magnificent church of St. Mark for a breathtaking view on its golden mosaics.

What's best than a boat ride for approaching a city built on the water?

We step down at the Arsenal, former State Shipyard of the Venetian Republic, and we start a walk throughout Castello, the easternmost neighbourhood of the city. The walk features awesome buildings as well as hidden corners.

After lunch we reach the area of Rialto, the former centre for commerce, and we then proceed to St. Mark's square, the heart of Venice, and visit the 900 years old church, a fabulous example of byzantine art and architecture, entirely dressed with golden mosaics and precious marbles.

The guide provides you with information to go back to your hotel.
