Know More about this tour

This tour combination is the right one for those who crave a full immersion into Venice and its everlasting symbols.

This combo will start with a beautiful walking tour which will take you among the most hidden and peaceful corners of Venice. Discover the city through its narrow alleys called calli, countless bridges, and wide traditional and picturesque squares, still the heart of Venetian people's social life.

The first highlight of the walking tour is St. Marks Square, with the description of the majestic St. Marks Basilica, the elegant Doges Palace, the Clock Tower and the Procuratie (only external, for now). Please note that this first part of the tour will completely take place outside and it does not include any admittance to local sites.

Following this, visit one of the most famous symbols of Venice: The Doges Palace. Today, the symbol of Venice and its power is still standing in all its beauty and majesty, every day taking travelers' breath away. Your ticket allows you to enter without waiting in line. Audio-receiver device included.

Another undisputed symbol of Venice is the St Mark Basilica, a beautiful example of Byzantine architecture where Eastern and Western architecture run into each other. Here, you will learn more about the everlasting history of Venice, about St Mark and how his remains came to rest and are shielded here.

Surrounded by the Basilicas beautiful gold mosaics and marble inlays, your professional guide will take you along the history and the special features of this unique masterpiece. Among the priceless treasures shielded in the Basilica, you will have the chance to admire the Pala dOro, a fine example of Byzantine art with its thousands of gems and precious stones, and the Treasury, a splendor of the religious art. And, of course, the golden mosaics, maybe the most famous feature of the cathedral.

    The walking tour was amazing! Pleasant pace, excellent audio communication in English speckled with spicy and funny comments/insights! It was SO interesting! Basilica and Doge Palace was amazing too! It’s a long tour so wear comfortable shoes…and you will have no regrets.

    Excellent tour and just the length of time my group of 6 wanted in order to get a good idea of layout of Venice. Learned a lot of interesting tidbit’s about the city, not just the history behind the basilica and palace. Our guide was excellent!

    Our guide, Elizabeth, was great. Her level of knowledge of the city and its buildings really made this a must do tour, you miss so much just looking at the city and it’s sites, it becomes alive with a tour guide and gives you so much more of an appreciation of its history.

    Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and Assisi are about her city. The pace was good for kids as well.

    The four hour walking tour of Venice was terrific. The four hours were split pretty evenly between sites of Venice near St. Mark’s square and the “Basilica and Doge Palace”. We had separate guides for each of the two pats and each guide was excellent. They were knowledgable, courteous, humorous and interesting in what they shared about what we saw. If your going to Venice, the four hour walking tour is a must!

    The problem or success of most tours. This had two different guides; one for the walking and another for the basilica and palace. The walking tour guide was great, the other not so great We paid for a separate basilica ticket the next day to really see and understand about the basilica

    We were on a one day visit to Venice and this tour was very good for seeing highlights and experiencing some of the history during the walk. The walk of the tour was longer than I expected but very interesting thanks to our excellent tour guide Emmanuela. She shared interesting history and answered many of our questions. We did not do the gondola ride. Recommended tour!

    Very informative tours of the city, basilica and palace, everything was well paced and nicely explained! I liked that we were given the essential information (personally I don’t like to be bombarded with a ton of dates and names) and things were well organized.

    Wonderful guide, Dianella! Knowledgeable and extremely helpful in resolving issues when I did not get my ticket printed. Grazie Mille!

    Venice is just opening up so it was interesting taking this tour at a time when there were no crowds. I did the first part of the tour by myself and we were joined by 4 later. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable with good English language skills.
