If it’s your first time in Venice, see all the highlights of this magical city on a combination walking tour of Venice’s narrow streets and a boat tour on the Grand Canal. From Piazza San Marco (St Mark’s Square) to the Rialto Bridge, your informative guide will offer historical perspectives on this fascinating medieval city. Plus, you'll skip the long lines at St Mark's Basilica – there’s no need to waste time waiting in lines when you're on vacation!

Your comprehensive introduction to Venice begins near St Mark’s Square with a two-hour guided walking tour highlighting the city’s important monuments. Follow your guide to the famous piazza and learn the history behind its landmarks, including the Byzantine architectural heritage of St Mark's Basilica and the adjoining prisons of Doge's Palace.

Visit the famed basilica of St Mark's with skip-the-line admission, without having to stand in long queues! At the Scuola di San Marco, learn about the medieval trade schools of Venice that provided the foundations for the great mercantile empire of Venice.

Leaving the crowds behind, enter a labyrinth of narrow passageways, alleys and meandering canals punctuated by delicate bridges as you further explore the enchanting city with your guide. Explore the lively Campo Santa Maria Formosa with its outstanding Gothic palaces, and view Marco Polo's house as well as an old merchant's warehouse and the city’s most beautiful wellhead.

Complete your walking tour near the Rialto Bridge, and enjoy free time before your boat tour of the Grand Canal begins. (Depending on the season, your boat tour will start between 4:30pm and 5:30pm. Your guide will provide details of the exact meeting location and time after the walking tour.)

Next, enjoy a relaxing one-hour cruise along the Grand Canal of Venice via water taxi. Along the way you will learn the history of the stunning palaces and churches that line the famous canal, as well as hear anecdotes about the famous people who have resided on Venice's most important ‘street.’ During the second half of your boat tour, discover the minor canals of Venice and soak up the romantic atmosphere.

Please note: St Mark's Basilica is free of charge to enter and we guarantee that you'll skip any long lines as part of this tour. Venice is subject to flash floods and occasionally the Basilica is closed to the public (without notice) because of high water or festivities.

Meet your driver-guide in central Venice and then leave the city by luxury minivan, traveling north through the Veneto countryside and into the Sesto region in the Dolomite Mountains. Stop for a coffee (own expense) in Pieve di Cadore, a gorgeous little village known for being the birthplace of the Renaissance painter Titian, and then continue to Lake Santa Caterina.

Stretch your legs on a quick stroll, admiring the lakeside scenery, and then continue by coach to Lake Misurina -- known as the ‘Pearl of the Dolomites.’ Have your camera poised, ready to capture breathtaking shots of the lake against the backdrop of Tre Cime di Lavaredo – the Dolomite’s three distinctive peaks. Travel toward the peaks by coach, stopping at a vantage point to soak up the serene mountain views.

Rest at a local trattoria for lunch (own expense), and then choose to either take a walk or stay at the restaurant and relax. If you opt to do the walk, follow your driver-guide's explanations and walk along one of the gentler mountain trails to see more of the area’s sublime scenery, as well as its mountain flora and fauna.

Leave the foothills of Tre Cime di Lavaredo in the afternoon and travel by minivan  to the swanky ski resort of Cortina d'Ampezzo, where affluent Italians go not just to ski, but to see and be seen. Stop for photos at a panoramic viewpoint and drink in views of the bustling town encircled by towering mountains.

Enjoy free time in Cortina to do as little or as much as you want. Perhaps browse its elegant boutiques, or visit one of the street-side cafés for a coffee (own expense). Meet your driver-guide back at the pre-arranged time, and return to Venice, passing the peaks of the Dolomite bathed in the late-afternoon sun. Your tour finishes at the start point in the early evening.

Step inside the secret life of the Astronomical Clock on Saint Mark's Square, an ancient masterpiece of technology and engineering. True to the Renaissance spirit, beauty and functionality go hand in hand in this little-visited Venetian landmark!

Visitors get a close view of the mechanism and of the gears linking it with the south and north clock faces, overlooking St. Mark’s Square and the Mercerie respectively

The Moors' Clock Tower is one of the most famous architectural landmarks in Venice, standing over an arch that leads into what is the main shopping street of the city, the old Merceria. The Tower and its large Astronomical Clock, a masterpiece of technology and engineering, form an essential part of the very image of Venice. For more than five hundred years, they have measured out the flow of life and history within the city.

Visits to all four floors are now available, only upon reservation and accompanied by an expert guide. A first small flight of stone steps leads up to a little room in which the history of the Tower is explained. From here one can see the interesting network of pulleys, weights and counterweights as they silently rise and fall at regular intervals. A metal spiral staircase then takes one towards the complex workings of the clock proper; visitors get a close view of the mechanism and of the gears linking it with the south and north clock faces, overlooking St. Mark's Square and the Mercerie respectively. A further staircase then leads up to the next floor, where one can see the wooden statues of the Magi and the Angel as well as the two ornate doors from which these statues emerge in procession twice a year, on the feasts of the Epiphany and the Ascension. 

The clock-face over the Merceria comprises an outer fixed ring in marble, inscribed with the hours in Roman numerals, within which is a tondo of mosaic scattered with golden stars. Inside this is a moving disk, about 170 cm in diameter, of flaming rays in embossed copper, with traces of original gilding; face of the sun serves to indicate the hours. At the center is a copper Lion of St. Mark; once gilded, this serves to cover the end of the axle transmitting power to the clock-hand.

Originally the two doors from which the Three Kings and the Angel emerged in procession were wooden structures faced with painted and gilded metal and decorated with two gilded angels in embossed metal. Since 1858 these doors have been absent for most of the year, replaced by two metal openings which are decorated with gilded geometric motifs and make it possible to reading the panels of the hours and minutes on the two rotating barrels installed by Luigi De Lucia.

The interior of the Clock Tower comprises various small spaces linked by narrow and steep stairs; thus the building is inaccessible for those with walking difficulties and the visit is not recommended for pregnant women or for those who suffer from claustrophobia, vertigo or heart conditions and respiratory diseases. All visitors must be over 6 years old.

Skip the Line: Doge's Palace Tour (2 hours):
Meet your guide at the entrance to the Royal Gardens in Venice and stroll to Doge's Palace, the magnificent Venetian-Gothic building from where the leaders of the former Venetian Republic ruled until the late-18th century. Head inside and explore the grandiose public chambers that the doges lavished with fine art and ornamentation. Masterpieces by Renaissance champions Tintoretto and Veronese adorn the walls and ceilings, framing the palace’s grand staircases and arcade statues.

Learn about the extravagant doges as you walk around, and hear of the power and treachery that characterized their reign. Ruling the republic with iron fists, the doges established a network of prisons at the palace so they could keep a close eye on their foes. Wander across the Bridge of Sighs, built to connect the palace to the fearsome prisons, and pose for photos against the backdrop of the palace. Your walking tour then finishes outside the palace, leaving you to enjoy a 3-hour break before your next tour starts.

Skip the Line: Small-Group Venice Walking Tour with St Mark’s Basilica (2 hours):
Leave St Mark’s Square and set off on your walking tour to discover some of Venice’s highlights — its top attractions and lesser-known sights. Soak up the hustle and bustle of St Mark’s Square, and head inside St Mark’s Basilica to admire its interiors. Marvel at the marble floors and ogle the gilded mosaics that blanket the walls and ceilings. The Pala D’Oro canopy over the high altar dazzles with gold and your guide will explain the Byzantine influences that helped Venice hone its distinctive architectural style.

After 40 minutes approx inside the St Mark's Basilica, head out and set off to discover the canal walkways and pretty bridges that many visitors don’t get to see. Stop for photos by San Zaccaria Church and admire its incredible façade with Gothic and Renaissance carvings. As you walk, listen to your guide’s tales of the city during the days of the Venetian Republic and the many colorful characters that have called Venice home throughout the ages.

After two hours exploring the city, work your way back to the start point at St Mark’s Square and finish your tour by the Bridge of Sighs.

Visit the beautiful Dolomite Mountains on a day trip and enjoy an action-packed tour of Venice on an exciting Super Saver, spread over two full days. Combining two top Venice tours at a discount of ten percent, the experience showcases the stunning mountain scenery on Venice’s doorstep as well as the sights of the city. Discover Lake Santa Caterina, the Tre Cime di Lavaredo peaks and the ski resort of Cortina d’Ampezzo, and then enjoy a skip-the-line tour of St Mark’s Basilica, a walking tour of the city and a water taxi ride along the Grand Canal.

The two tours that comprise this Super Saver operate on different days. Between the months of November to March, if you book the Super Saver to start on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday, your Dolomites day trip is done on Day 1, followed by your Venice tour on Day 2. On all other days, the Super Saver operates in reverse. During the high season, both tours operate daily.

Dolomite Mountains Day Trip from Venice (8.5 hours):
Leave Venice by air-conditioned minibus, and then travel north through the Veneto countryside to visit the glorious Dolomite Mountains. After a coffee stop (own expense) in the village of Pieve di Cadore, stroll around Lake Santa Caterina, and then continue to Lake Misurina, the stretch of water known as the ‘pearl of the Dolomites.’ Stop for photos against the backdrop of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo peaks, and relax over lunch in a charming trattoria nearby (own expense).

After an optional walk along the gently winding foothills of Tre Cime di Lavaredo in the afternoon, travel to the swanky ski resort of Cortina d’Ampezzo to take photos of the scenery and enjoy free time to explore. Browse Cortina’s boutiques, visit a cozy cafe or take a stroll around the atmospheric side streets. Then, meet your guide at the prearranged time and travel back to Venice where your Dolomites tour finishes.

Skip the Line: Venice in One Day (3 hours):
Meet your guide near the Royal Gardens in central Venice, and then set off on a walking tour around the city to discover its highlights. Explore St Mark’s Square with its lively cafes and monuments, and stop for photos in front of Doge's Palace and the adjoining Middle Age prisons. Head inside St Mark’s Basilica for a skip-the-line tour, and marvel at the gilded grandeur of the building’s interior while learning about Venice during Byzantine days.

Leave the basilica and stroll around the atmospheric backstreets and alleyways that line the canals. Explore lively Campo Santa Maria Formosa with its Gothic palaces and see the house where Marco Polo — the pioneering Venetian explorer — once lived. After seeing lesser-known sights such as a beautiful old merchant’s warehouse, finish your walking tour near the famous Rialto Bridge.

Enjoy some free time (duration to be given on the day), and then make your way to the water’s edge for your small-group Grand Canal water taxi ride. Known as the limousines of Venice, the water taxis offer both comfort and speed, allowing you to see more sights than you would on a typical gondola ride.

Have your camera ready to capture photos of the Baroque churches, Gothic palaces, secret gardens and gondola stations that line the busy Grand Canal, and hear anecdotes about the famous Venetians who have resided on the 'street.' Then, cruise along the lesser-visited canals, admiring the bridges and walkways, and work your way back to the start point where your tour finishes.
