You will be met at Venice Port by your tour escort and private boat driver for your transfer to St Mark's Square in the heart of Venice. Your private, licensed guide will take you on a 2 hour tour of the city center. You will visit some of the top highlights of Venice, including skip-the-line entrance to St. Mark’s Cathedral, where you will see the stunning Pala d'Oro, or Golden Pall. This altarpiece is universally recognized as one of the most refined and accomplished works of Byzantine craftsmanship and is adorned with over 2000 gems.
You will then head to the political heart of Venice, the Doges Palace, where the rulers of Venice once lived. Your tour will finish with the famous Bridge of Sighs. You will have some free time to wander the city and grab a bite to eat for lunch.
Finally, travel Venice’s elegant canals in style with your pre-booked 30-minute private gondola ride. After this, you will meet your tour escort back in St Mark’s Square and be accompanied by your private driver back to the port.
