Description

Start the tour at St. Mark's Square where you learn about the significance of the Piazza San Marco during the Venetian empire. Admire some of Venice’s architectural masterpieces, including St. Mark’s Basilica, the imposing Bell Tower, and the beautiful façade of Santa Maria Formosa church.

Skip the long line outside Palazzo Ducale, visit its incredible rooms and view the collections it houses. Used as the Duke’s former residence and seat of the city’s council, the palace is home to breath-taking artworks collected over many centuries. Cross the Bridge of Sighs and follow in the footsteps of its former prisoners who walked over the bridge to be taken to their prison cells.

Finally, you will have the opportunity to join an optional glassblowing demonstration at a glass factory very close to Saint Mark’s square. Otherwise, after the end of your tour, you can use your museum ticket to explore a variety of venues, such as the Museo Correr, the Archaeological Museum, the area built by Napoleon, and the rooms restored for Sissi, the beloved Empress of Austria.

This tour was wonderful. Unfortunately, I do not remember the name of our guide, but she was superb! The whole process was well organized. We had 8 people for the city highlights tour, and then 10 for the Doge Palace tour. Just the perfect size. I would highly recommend this tour!
