What to expect

This combination of three tours will take you to the heart of Venice and its Byzantine art heritage.

The first part is a walking tour which will take you into the enchanting Venice made up of countless bridges, channels and campo (little squares), the pulsing heart of a water city. Following an experienced tour guide, you will learn more about Venice's recent and past and interesting facts about life in a city built on water. Campo Santa Maria Formosa, Campo and Church SS. Giovanni e Paolo, the Mercerie, are only some of the highlights which will be admired during this walk.

In the second part of the tour, you will admire Venice from a unique perspective thanks to a gondola ride. In an eye glimpse, it will be like being projected into another world, away from the crowded alleys of the historic center and ready to discover a deeper side of Venice.

At last, you will discover not only one of Venice's most famous sites and symbols but also one among the world's most beautiful and breathtaking cathedrals: the St. Mark's Basilica (skip-the-line entry). Overlooking St Mark's Square and St Mark's Basin, the Basilica is one of the finest examples of Byzantine art in the world. Surrounded by the majestic interiors of the Basilica, you will learn more about Venice's history and in particular about its patron saint, St Mark.
