What can I expect?

This tour combines a visit to St. Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace with the history of Venice. In just a few hours you see the most famous sites of the city! It's perfect for visitors with limited time in Venice, who want to get a true taste of the city. 

It all begins at one of Venice's must-see sights, Doge's Palace. Did you know that Venice is one of the world's oldest republics? That's why the Doge's Palace is so important for the city's history - originally, it was the home to the Duke of Venice and the city's courts, and is therefore the center of Venetian history. 

Here you explore all the best sights of the palace open to the public. Magnificent frescos, art works and fun facts about the history and culture of Venice are just a few of the things you'll see and hear all about here.

Next you skip the line to the very heart of Venice – St. Mark's Basilica. Its location, St. Mark's Square, was once pronounced the "finest drawing room in all of Europe" by Napoleon. Inside the basilica you see eastern and western design blend together beautifully. Your guide tells you all about the differences and how it created diversity in Venetian culture - it's quite an interesting story!
