Along the way, see the main sights of Venice the way they were meant to be seen - from the water. See the central square of Venice, St Mark's Piazza. Watch as your guide points out the mosaics adorning the ancient Basilica and its clock tower along with the Campanile (bell tower).
Admire views of Doge’s Palace, which for over 1000 years, served as the government administrative center of the region. Here you will also experience the world-famous Venice gondola ride, in small groups of maximum 5 people.
Next, explore the San Marco Square on your own, or join your guide and head to the lively Rialto market where locals go for fresh fish and produce. Have the opportunity to buy a snack or drink, browse the local delicacies, and go souvenir shopping (at your own expense). Cross the Rialto Bridge and soak in the views of the canal. Learn about the lives of traders and merchants. Afterward, transfer to the luggage storage. Your guide will help you with tips or arrangements to get to your next destination, whether the airport, hotel or a train station.
You will be greeted at the cruise ship port and shown to a modern, comfortable, and air-conditioned vehicle. Your professional driver will then transfer you through the beautiful Italian countryside. The journey takes roughly 2.5 hours.

From the bus parking we will transfer you to Piazzale Rome, where our adventure begins. This is the closest cars are allowed to come and once you walk across the first bridge the charm of this timeless island quickly becomes apparent.
The boat will bring you directly to the San Marco Square - the most famous and only "Square of Venice".
Your guide will show you the mosaics adorning the ancient Basilica and its clock tower along with the Campinale (Bell Tower).
Another highlight of our tour will be the famous and extraordinary Doge Palace, which for over 1000 years served as the White House and Pentagon for the region.
After the gondola ride you can take your time at the San Marco Square to do some shopping and more sightseeing, or walk with our tour guide over to the Rialto bridge and market. Here you will learn about the lives of traders who after a successful day on shore would re-embark on their merchant vessels docked at the port.
