Overview
Discovering Venice in just one day is possible if you plan ahead and book this combo tour, which ensures you maximize your time. Get your bearings on a guided walking tour of Venice’s historic center, save time with skip-the-line tickets for St Mark’s Basilica, and take a sightseeing cruise along the Grand Canal. Plus, enjoy free time in between for sightseeing and souvenir shopping.
What to Expect

Meet your guide near St Mark’s Square where you learn about Venice’s history before setting out on a 2-hour walking tour.

Stop along the way to admire landmarks such as Doge’s Palace and Scuola Grande di San Marco, before arrival at St Mark’s Basilica. Using your skip-the-line ticket, head inside to marvel at the magnificent cathedral.

Follow your guide through the quiet backstreets of Venice and stroll along the scenic canals. Admire the gothic palazzos around Campo Santa Maria Formosa and pose for photos on the Rialto Bridge, before bidding your guide, who provides boat tour meetup info, farewell.

Between your walking tour and boat cruise, enjoy free time to discover Venice independently.

Make your way to the pier for your cruise and take a water taxi for a sightseeing tour. Set sail along the Grand Canal and enjoy views of Venice from the water from its canals.

Your tour ends back at the pier.

Well worth a little homework, when you get to Venice you do not have to stand in line to purchase tickets, you can do this for gondola rides, museums, glass blowing etc.

This was a good way to become familiar with the area around St. Mark's square and the Grand Canal. Our guide was very good, but walked too fast for some of the older people in the group. She got us out of the crowds and...More
