Full description
Your tour begins at St. Marco’s Square, known to be the heart of Venice. Your expert guide will give you a brief historical introduction to Venice’s history as the most powerful maritime empire on the Mediterranean. After a thorough history of the gothic beauty of St. Marco’s Basilica, head off to the Doge’s Palace, the iconic palace of Venice’s imperial ruler. 

Continue your path through Venice, stopping by the Campanille, a stunning bell tower that is, to this day, the tallest structure in Venice. Afterwards, you’ll end up in the Campo SS. Giovanni e Paolo, where the Pantheon of Venice, the largest church in the city, stands. Listen to the history of the menagerie of ornate statues that surrounds the church before heading off to perhaps the most ornate building in Venice, the Scuola Grande di San Marco.

After hitting all the main sights, your guide will take you through the smaller alleyways of town to uncover some hidden gems, like Marco Polo’s home, among other local secrets. Continue down the Mercerie, the city’s most bustling shopping street, to feel the true energy of the iconic city. After your thrilling tour, settle down for a 30 minute gondola ride down the winding canals, where you’ll experience the sights you’ve seen from a new perspective.
