Experience the city's heart, Saint Mark Basilica and Doges Palace with me - an unmissable part of your visit to Venice.
St. Marks' Basilica and the Doge's Palace are two of the most popular places to visit in Venice, and although they are must-see stops for travelers. These are the 2 areas from where we will start the tour - we than continue to reach the Rialto bridge and some of the less known areas not so far from from Saint Mark square.
This tour with Doge's Palace and St. Mark's Basilica is perfect if you might have only a limited time in Venice, who want to get a true taste of the city. In just a few hours I will take you to the most famous sites of the city, seeing the Rialto Bridge and venturing inside St, Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace.
With Skip the Line Access we'll get straight inside St. Mark's Basilica, saving time. Let's admire together one of the symbol of Venetian culture, where eastern architecture and western design have blended to create an incredible structure on the outside and the beautiful mosaics inside the basilica.
We proceed inside the Doge's Palace. Once home to the Duke of Venice and the city's courts, it is the center of Venetian history. We'll explore all the best sights of the palace open to the public. We will continue to the Rialto bridge, the market and some of the less known areas of Venice. The tour will finish around Rialto area where I will give you maps and suggestions for lunch and free time

Elisabetta is a "local" and vastly knowledgeable, as well as charming and delightful company. She went out of her way to accommodate our idiosyncratic interests and totally customized our tour, while taking us "behind the scenes" aka off the beaten track. She also showed us the magic of how to traverse Venice on our own. She loves her Venice and it was reflected in every moment of time together. She was fantastic and we highly recommend!!
