Walk the waterfront streets of Venice and discover the history and mysteries forever captured within its picturesque piazzas and famous architectural marvels.
Be entranced by St. Mark’s Basilica, from its east-meets-west onion dome to its dazzling mosaics. Climb up to the Basilica’s famous terrace level for a rare bird’s eye view of St. Mark’s Square.
Explore the history, halls and corridors of the Doge’s Palace. Learn as history is brought to vibrant life with an expert, local English-speaking guide.
Enjoy 1.5 hours of free time to amble about the area at your leisure, have an authentic Italian lunch or simply relax and watch tourists and Venetians go about their day.
Bask in the beauty of the Venetian lagoon through its best two islands – Murano and Burano. Learn about classic Venetian island traditions, shop the artisanal offerings and explore the cities on your own.
See live demonstrations in the arts of glassblowing and lacemaking led by master craftspeople using age-old methods unchanged for decades. Unlike most Venice tours visiting Murano and Burano, we do not take a commission on purchases you make. In fact, we pass our 10% discounts on to you.
Appreciate a relaxed and intimate group of only 25 people or fewer and the individualized attention it allows. Convenient audio headsets, so you can always hear your guide.

St. Mark's Basilica is subject to occasional closures without prior notice. When this occurs, we offer customers an extended tour of the Basilica from the outside and St. Mark's Square. While we undertake to inform customers ahead of time when there are disruptions to the Basilica's opening hours, this is not always possible. In these cases we are unable to provide refunds or discounts. Due to increased security measures at many attractions some lines may form on tours with 'Skip the Line' access.
This one day package is made up of two separate tours, and you will have free time between the two tours to have lunch at your own leisure in the St. Mark area.
The boat will bring you back to the Saint Mark’s area at about 7:30 pm.
Please arrive 15 minutes before the start time of the tour.
