Full description
A spectacular treasure trove of art and culture, the charms of Venice could easily occupy you for a lifetime. Building on our years of experience exploring its atmospheric alleyways and gliding down its iconic canals, we’ve created our special Day in Venice itinerary to offer visitors the perfect introduction to the varied highlights of the floating city. Venice is a city of many faces: on the first half of our tour we’ll explore breathtaking sites that speak to the city’s centuries-long status as one of the world’s most important super-powers, including St. Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace - twin triumphs of the Maritime Republic that stand spectacular guard over the monumental Grand Canal. The second half of our itinerary offers a complete change of pace as we embark on a thrilling water taxi ride out to three beautiful and unspoiled islands immersed in the Venetian lagoon where artisan crafts and ancient traditions are the order of the day – Murano, Burano and Torcello. The islands conserve another side of Venice’s past and present where time seems to stand still and centuries-old traditions of craftsmanship that have been passed down the centuries live on today. Join us to discover the world’s greatest and most historic centre of artisan glassmaking on Murano, Burano’s gorgeous patchwork of brightly coloured houses and fishermen’s huts, and the mysterious origins of Venetian civilization on isolated Torcello. Visiting the islands in the company of one of our expert local guides and with the comfort of a private water taxi at your disposal, this is the perfect way to experience the marvels of the Venetian lagoon!
