What to Expect
Experience Venice from the land and water on a combined tour of 2 of its best attractions, and see the reflections of sunlight on the canals before discovering the golden interior of St. Mark’s Basilica.

First, take a gondola ride along the enchanting canals. Depart near the Royal Gardens of St. Mark’s, just steps from Piazza San Marco. Sit back as the gondolier takes you to hidden sites, punting the picturesque canals around La Fenice theater and the Grand Canal. Look at the reflections of old palaces and romantic bridges. Admire some of the city’s most important buildings en route to St. Mark’s Square.

Then, skip the long lines to look inside St. Mark’s Basilica, and learn the history of the Byzantine cathedral and its precious interior. Discover why it is known as the “Basilica of Gold” as you admire golden mosaics and masterpieces from the Venetian Republic. Marvel at the normally hidden Pala d’Oro (Golden Pall), one of the most refined and accomplished works of Byzantine craftsmanship.
