Tour description

Venice has a long and fascinating history which, combined with its many canals and small alleyways, can be overwhelming for a tourist.  Avoid getting lost and get the most out of your visit by joining one of our local guides for a two-hour tour that will take you to see all of the city’s highlights!

Visit the Doge's Palace, symbol of the political power of the city, admire its rich Art collection, hear interesting legends about Venice and its rulers, then leave the main rooms of the Palace to discover its secret passages, the hidden rooms and the prisons. Through the narrow corridors you will reach the Bridge of Sighs, so called because of the sighs of the prisoners brought in their cell using this canal.

The tour continues in Saint Mark's Basilica, with our skip-the-line tickets you will go directly inside to admire the beautiful Byzantine Mosaics and all the artistic masterpieces housed inside the Church. You will learn more about the Patron of the city and the legends related to his relics.
