Admire Venice during a gondola ride and enjoy a tour of one of its symbols: St Mark’s Basilica.
Discover Venice from the water, navigating the narrow canals and admiring architectural masterpieces, water reflections and peace, far from the crowded alleys. Get ready for the last part of the tour, as it includes a gondola ride on the Grand Canal!
You will then take a guided tour to one of the most famous cathedrals in the world: St Mark’s Basilica. This is the place where eastern and western architecture merge. A professional guide will take you through the history and peculiarities of this unique masterpiece of Byzantine art, surrounded by the Basilica’s splendid golden mosaics and marble inlays.
