Overview

We will meet you at the car parking in Piazzale Roma in the morning so you can securely store your luggage. Then, with your luggage stored, you will be taken on an exciting tour of Venice with a professional local guide. From Piazzale Roma we will take a boat to the breathtaking 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.

Next, we will experience the highlight of this tour: the world-famous gondola ride! Prepare for an adventure of your lifetime, as we divide you into 5-person groups, each traveling on their own gondola. After visiting the St Mark Square and the exciting gondola ride, we will make our way to the enchanting Rialto bridge - the first bridge built on the Grand Canal.
Here you will see how the other half of the island lives. 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.

On our next stop you will have some free time at the lively Rialto market where tourists and locals alike go for fresh fish and produce. You will have the opportunity to browse Venetian delicacies, get a snack, drink and go souvenir shopping.

The next stop is the Campo San Polo, where in old times the Venetians would organize bullfights for Carnival. Around the corner with its unassuming façade is one of the most famous gondola disembark and wedding locations, the Frari Chapel. On our stroll through the old town we will pass the San Rocco school and church, which is where the lesser known Tintoretto Sistine Chapel is preserved on the walls inside.

At the end of the tour, your tour guide will bring you back to your stored luggage at Piazzale Roma so you can board the bus which will take you and your luggage to your cruise ship starting its journey in the port of Trieste. Your professional driver will then transfer you through the beautiful Italian countryside on our modern, air-conditioned bus. The journey takes roughly 2.5 to 3 hours.
