Full description
On a tour led by an expert guide, discover the most beautiful and famous monuments of Venice around the area of St. Mark's Square. You'll see the outside of the majestic St. Mark's Basilica — one of the most incredible cathedrals of the world — and of the Doge's Palace, formerly the Doge's residence and seat of Venetian government.  

Follow your guide until you reach the famous Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri) and learn everything about its interesting history and the romantic legends. In St. Mark's Square, you'll also see the Clock Tower (Torre dell'Orologio), with its extraordinarily beautiful and elaborate timepiece.

Towards the end of the tour, you'll get the chance to take the elevator up to St. Mark's Bell Tower (Campanile di San Marco). A sight to behold at 99 meters tall, this has the best view over the city and its lagoon.
