Full description
If you only have one day to spend in Venice and you do not want to miss any of the major sights or waste time standing in long lines, then book this two-hour walking tour. Join a small group or a private tour that will take you on a meticulously planned walking tour of Venice’s top sights in the company of a professional and local guide. Never wait in a line, and view St. Mark's Basilica and Doge's Palace from outside only. Enjoy the privileges of a carefully planned tour so that you don’t miss out on any of the sights because of crowds. Learn about the different districts, meet some of Venice’s influential rulers, see evidence of its maritime past and discover the prestigious role of the all-important procurators of San Marco. Learn about some of the best-known sights in Venice including the Rialto Bridge and St Mark’s Square. You will hear about some of the magnificent artworks that grace the Accademia, learn about the origins of Venetian masks that are still worn at Carnevale. Understand how the Bridge of Sighs got its name, and stand spellbound before some of the world’s most outstanding ecclesiastical artworks. See the splendid St Mark’s Basilica from the outside, and also hear the story behind the Roman bronze statues of the Horses of Saint Mark. Then, escape the thronging crowds that fill St Mark’s Square and dive down the lesser-known alleyways to emerge in peaceful plazas lined with faded grandeur. Stroll along little-known backstreets of the real Venice observing local life and soak up the atmosphere in secret tree-lined squares bordered by charming pavement cafés. Finish the tour with a 30-minute gondola ride. Your guide will help organize it but the tickets are not included because of the variety of options.

Have small group (20 people) booked in German. At the meeting point (winged lion on pillar by the sea) a lovely young lady was waiting for us. Surprise - we have a super small group (Ariana, our tour guide, my girlfriend and I). Ariana speaks great German, tells a lot of interesting things and surprises me with her knowledge of the city. She always has a logical explanation for the many questions I ask. She takes the time for us - and is happy about our interest in this great city. Congratulations to this employee!
