Venice highlights with boat ride from the cruise terminal
Enjoy your private visit of Venice's highlights with boat ride from your cruise terminal.
The tour starts with a private boat ride from the cruise terminal to the city centre. 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 we stop for a light lunch, at your best convenience.
A deserved rest before we proceed in our walk to reach the area of Rialto, former centre of commerce and 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 an extensive description of the main monuments and leads you into the magnificent church of St. Mark for a breathtaking view on its golden mosaics.
The guide leaves you near the Shuttle Station to go back to the Port.
