Venice in A Day with Official Guide, Boat tour and Entrance Fees
Venice in A Day - duration 3h 30m
The Venice in one day tour is a 3.5 hour combined tour of the city and the best way to spend a half day in Venice. This four-part tour allows you to explore all Venice’s most important places, including no-queue entrance to Saint Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace.
You'll begin your day with a shared gondola trip that takes you on a thirty-minute round trip down the Grand Canal and through the smaller canals. Enjoy the beauty, charm and color of this unique city built on water the ideal way. You will feel part of ancient Venetian tradition and experience Venice as the locals have for more than ten centuries. A short stroll accompanied by your English-speaking guide is the next part of this tour. You will be fascinated by the intriguing history of La Serenissima. The next port of call is Saint Mark’s Basilica which you can explore without the need to queue. Entrance fees are also included, so you can get a closer look at the mind-blowing mosaics and the “Pala d’Oro” (Golden Altar), recognized worldwide as one of the most refined and accomplished works of Byzantine artisans.
Use your special pass and avoid the queues to enter the Doge’s Palace, crossing the Bridge of Sighs and visiting the prison cells. The palace is an amazing blend of Gothic, Byzantine and Renaissance architecture, in the very center of Venice. Once the residence of the Doge, the city's elected ruler, and his councilors, it became the hub of the Venetian Empire and the seat of its government. The Doge's Palace opened as a museum in 1923.
At 4.45 pm, after the Doge's Palace, you'll finish your half day in Venice by boarding a private motor launch (water taxi) which will take you for an hour-long trip along the most spectacular 'high street' in the world, "Venice’s Grand Canal", giving you a great all-round view of the city covering many of its “sestieri” (neighborhoods).
