This special excursion offers you the possibility to discover the charming city of Venice, known as "Queen of the Adriatic" by evening and night. This Byzantine city, rich in monuments and history has a secret revealed only by the darkness.
What to Expect
Spend the day in one of the world’s most romantic cities on a full-day tour to Venice from Lake Garda. Transfer across the Veneto by air-conditioned bus, and then hop on a private boat to the heart of the city. Find your pick-up point by choosing different locations all around Lake Garda. During the transfer to Venice there is time for a short coffee break. The estimated time of arrival in Venice is 12.30 pm.
Upon arrival, hop on a private boat and cross the "Giudecca Canal" to St. Mark's Square. You'll be able to admire the beautiful architecture and city planning with its house whose foundations are completely in water. Once you've arrived in the center of Venice, you'll see many of the city’s most famous landmarks, such as St. Mark's Basilica, the Bridge of Sights, and the Campanile. After some first impressions are made, free time is given to you to have an unforgettable moment in this city.
Learn more about the Republic of Venice and how it came to dominate both the east and the west as the “Queen of the Adriatic". Universally considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the city is built on a group of 117 small islands separated by canals. The Centralsestiere (district) is awash with beautiful squares and crumbling mansions, along with ancient churches, ateliers and bridges.
During the afternoon you'll have time to walk in the city center, or take a gondola ride.
The gondola is without doubt the symbol of Venice. It is truly distinctive because of its special features: 280 parts from 8 different types of wood fit together to create an 11 meter boat weighing more than 600 kg. A single gondoliere at the stern rows this miracle of nautics which greet Venice with a nod thanks to its asymmetrical hull.
Always with the tour escort, you'll be passing the "shopping street", and will reach the Rialto Bridge in the evening. The water will make a mirror effect and the surrounding lighting creates a glowing, special and romantic atmosphere.
At the end, you will return to the bus parking lot by private motorboat along the "Giudecca Canal"; the perfect way to say goodbye to the "Queen of the Adriatic", better known as Venice.
