Venice's main venues in one single tour


Most visitors with just 1 or 2 days to spend in Venice would like to embrace most of the city's main features and this tour is intended for that.

Start first navigating the water network of the city admiring the magnificent palaces facing the canals on your way to Murano. Once there be ready for the ultimate show, local masters creating glass pieces in endless shape and colors.

Later on your boat get back to town and start the walking part of this tour. We'll walk first through a less crowded and touristy part of town to grasp the real ambiance of this amazing city and get acquainted with its particular urban fabric.

Finally we'll reach St. Mark's square. Let your guide describe first the magnificent buildings encompassing the largest open space in town before entering and visiting the most important building in Venice, the glorious basilica entitled to Mark the evangelist. Once inside let your eye sight wander all around the huge mosaic decoration and learn about the main stories depicted.

A Recent Review of this tour

Fernando is such a kind, knowledgeable, and awesome guide! He's also an excellent photographer, & very good about being flexible with time. He has an excellent way of talking about Venice's history with today's modern times. His passion for his city and its welfare comes across in his awesome tour. Fernando's overview of the city had great variety! We went on a local Gandola, a beautiful private speed boat, got to go to an outer island. He has food suggestions as well! Highly recommend his tour!
