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


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 visit 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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Wow! I absolutely loved this tour. Caron really knows how to show the beauty of Venice. This tour surpassed my expectations on so many levels, we all enjoyed it. We had 3 kids and 2 seniors in our group and Caron was very understanding to their needs. The tour was very comfortable and didn't have that very fast pace feel that you get on many other tours. We were able to see and do everything that we wanted and Caron always made sure that no one was left behind. Thank you again Caron for an amazing tour!
