Venice is a treasure not to be missed - our tour of Venice can be added to most of our Italian tours.

Venice is an engineering marvel, ornate palaces and marble churches built on top of ancient posts rammed into the very muddy banks of the lagoon. The Venetians were such practical people, escaping the barbarians from the north they managed to build a stunning city in the most inhospitable of places- and what a city it is.

Venice is magnificent. Its main square, St Mark’s, can quite clearly be judged the most beautiful in all of Italy – the Doge’s Palace sits overlooking the lagoon next to the magnificent St Marks Basilica – so many treasures in such a small space.

We meet at the train station at midday and travel to our hotel by private boat where, after settling in, we will have an orientation walk to St Mark’s Square to discover one of the most beautiful squares in all of Italy.
Breakfast

Day 2

After breakfast, we take our first exclusive tour of Venice – this tour is just for our group with an expert Venice guide.

Our exclusive Classic Venice Tour

Our small group tour to Venice will allow us to take a sneak peek inside the most important buildings in Venice: The Doge’s palace and Saint Mark’s church. The Doge’s Palace tells of the fascinating history, art and culture of the Venetian Republic.

We’ll visit the magnificent halls of the Venetian government so richly decorated by the most important artists of the XVI th century and the Doge’s private apartments. We’ll also cross the famous Bridge of Sighs to see the old prisons of the Republic.

Saint Mark’s church. Close to the Doge’s palace is the church which was once the Doge’s private chapel and nowadays the Venetian cathedral - a rare example of Byzantine art with its golden mosaics and the “Pala d’Oro” (Golden Alterpiece) rich in enamels, precious stones and jewels.
Inside this church one can also visit the Gallery in order to see the original bronze horses brought from Constantinople during the second Crusade

In the afternoon, you might decide to further explore the many intriguing back-streets of Venice, where daily life can be observed.
Breakfast

Day 3

This morning we take a tour of the Grand Canal of Venice by vaporetto.

Our Grand Canal Tour

The Venetian “Canalasso” (Gran Canal) is the main “street” in Venice; it was once the main residential area for Noblemen and seat of the most important commercial activities.

Moving along its banks you’ll be enchanted by the extraordinary sequence of palaces and churches facing the water.

In the afternoon you might decide to tour the outlying islands of Murano, Burano etc to view the artisans at their work of glass making. The window shopping here is irresistible with the fascinating colours of the glass and jewellery.

Day 4

We say arriverderci to Venice…from here we can move to other parts of Italy easily Milan, Verona, Bologna etc, please contact us if you need assistance.
Breakfast and dinner
Our itineraries are carefully planned and well thought out but touring Italy can sometimes offer wonderful surprises. The magic of travelling in such a small group allows us to cater for this spontaneity and it is sometimes these unplanned occurrences that can be the most memorable. The rich tapestry of experiences and the characters you meet along the way will make this guided tour of Italy something special and one you will remember for a lifetime.
