Activity Description

See all the most important landmarks of Venice, one of Europe’s most splendorous cities, on this double-whammy that combines a walking tour of the city with an exclusive visit into the byzantine masterpiece that is the Golden Basilica.

The Walking Tour of Venice begins at the spacious and beautiful Piazza San Marco, where you will discover many of the Serenissima Reppublica’s most iconic buildings: the breath-taking Basilica, the Doge’s Palace (or the Palazzo Ducale), the Bell Tower and many more. Continue then to Santa Maria Formosa, where your guide will tell you all the tales behind this fabulous square.

Other sites you will see throughout the walk are Marco Polo’s House, the Great School of Charity and even the Pantheon of Venice. The last tram of the stroll will take you through the thrilling Mercerie, the vibrant shopping district between Rialto and San Marco.

The tour of the Golden Basilica takes you into this extraordinary construction – unparalleled in style and beauty in the rest of Italy. Contemplate the breath-taking golden mosaics and the marble inlaid floors. Then, enjoy a leisurely break as your guide tells you all about the biblical tales represented in the Basilica’s walls.

See too the Pala d’Oro, an outstanding piece of byzantine art decorated with thousands of gems and precious stones.
