Full description

Enjoy a stress-free transfer in a spacious bus from the port of Trieste. Explore the city of Venice on a guided walking tour to sights like Doge’s Palace and the Frari Chapel. Store your luggage and take in the sights without heavy bags. Have the option choose a tour with an iconic gondola ride.

Be greeted by your host and hop aboard a comfortable and air-conditioned bus with plenty of room for luggage storage. Sit back and relax and take in views of the Italian countryside on the ride to Venice. Once you arrive, meet your guide and leave your luggage securely locked away on the bus.

Transfer from the bus parking area to Piazzale Roma to begin your walking tour. Stroll across the first bridge and make our way to the San Rocco school and church. Go around the corner to see the Frari Chapel, a popular wedding location.

Stop at Campo San Polo, where Venetians used to organize bullfights for Carneval. Make your way 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.

Cross the grand Rialto Bridge and take in the views of the canal. Learn about the lives of traders and merchants. See the central square of Venice, St Marks Piazza. Watch as your guide points out the mosaics adorning the ancient Basilica and its clock tower along with the Campinale (Bell tower).

Admire views of Doge’s Palace, which for over 1000 years served as the government administration center for the region. Afterwards, transfer to pickup your luggage, or if you select the option gondola experience, begin your ride through the city's canals before collecting your luggage.
