If you only have a short time to explore Venice this tour is your perfect all-inclusive ticket to the top attractions of the city.

You’ll also get to explore Venice at ground level on an intimate walking tour and learn about the history, culture, and cuisine of the floating city.
One day to see all the top attractions in Venice? Our Venice In a Day Tour will take you to all the top attractions in the company of some of the best guides in the city.
Start your day early on the Rialto bridge before the crowds arrive. After meeting your local Venetian guide and snapping some of those all-important pictures, its off to the Rialto Fish Market to learn about the rich culinary history of the city, get restaurant recommendations, and see how the chefs and mamas of Venice source their food.
It’s not all walking though. Because Venice is as much in the sea as it is on the land you’ll step into a gondola (max 6 people per gondola) for a relaxing, all inclusive ride through the world-famous canals. Considering that independent rides usually cost around €80, this is quite a bargain.
After disembarking, skip the (usually long) line at St. Mark’s Basilica to gape at the incredible art and mosaics inside. You’ll also head off the normal tourist track to the special access terrace for a look at the famous horse sculptures and tiling as well as jaw-dropping views of Venice.
Next, it’s on to the Doge’s Palace which was the center of Venice’s maritime empire for hundreds of years.
With our expert, English-speaking, local tour guides and intimate groups of 15 people or fewer, you’ll see a side of Venice that few visitors ever get to experience. We’re taking you under the skin of perhaps world’s most unique city, revealing the rich culture and history that sits just below the surface, just waiting to be discovered.
