Enjoy the most beautiful parts of Venice by walking through the charming "calli" — tiny and fascinating streets, watching gondoliers float in the canals, and visiting the Ponte di Rialto, the first bridge erected on the Grand Canal. Remember to bring your camera –– this is one of Venice's most photographed locations: the canal that divides Venice is adorned with beautiful Venetian-style buildings. Follow your local guide through the "sestieri," which in Venetian means "neighborhoods," until you reach the beautiful and well-known Piazza San Marco. Your gondolier will be waiting for you there! Sail around the Venetian canals in the world's most renowned boat, the gondola, and marvel at the city's grandeur from the water. Learn how gondoliers interact with one another using a distinct dialect.

You will have some spare time after the Gondola ride before beginning the second part of your one-day excursion. Visit the Doge's Palace and the Basilica of St. Mark. You will learn about the masterpieces of Italian artists like Tintoretto, Tiziano, and Veronese in the Doge's Palace. Discover the mysteries of Venice's governments, see the prisons, walk the Bridge of Sighs, and listen to local stories. You will arrive at Saint Mark's Basilica, the world-famous Golden Cathedral that protects irreplaceable artifacts composed of golden mosaics and Venetian craftsmen's works, and then visit the St. Mark museum to see the view from the panoramic terrace. Discover the fantastic splendor of this one-of-a-kind city in only a few hours!
