Description - What to expect

Start your full-day guided tour to Venice with a pick up at the center of Florence and a ride in a luxury bus enjoying the beautiful landscape. Once you arrive in the famous Venice, your tour and exploration of the city will begin. Follow your tour leader into the heart of Venice, the fantastic Piazza San Marco, and admire St. Mark’s Basilica, an incredible example of Venetian Gothic and Byzantine style architecture. Admire the colorful mosaics decorating the church as well as the astonishing triumph of details decorating the façade.

Next, Just a short walk from the Basilica, stands the elegant Palazzo Ducale, a real masterpiece of elegance and grandeur. It is no coincidence that this majestic building represented for centuries the seat of the Venetian political power.

Venice is famously built on water, so naturally, it is best viewed from a traditional Venetian gondola. Float along the scenic canals, admiring the unique Venetian architecture and culture. You will be stunned by the reflections of the palaces overlooking the canals, as well as by the incredible skills of balance displayed by your gondoliere. The ride in a gondola is optional but highly recommended. At the end of your day, meet your tour leader, and make your way back to Florence.
