day 01 Venice-Arrival
Arrive independently to Venice and your hotel. The remaining of the day is at leisure for personal discoveries.
day 02 Venice in a Day
Start your day with an enchanting gondola tour and glide through centuries of history, allowing yourself to be captivated by the glamour and elegance of the Venetian Palazzi. Enjoy the romantic tranquillity of the Serenissima, and unlock the secrets of Venice and her intriguing labyrinth of canals. As you sit back and take in the views, you will inevitably become involved in the friendly banter of the gondoliers - as much a part of Venetian culture as the gondola itself! Walk to St Mark Square where your guide will take you to the external sights of Saint Mark’s square, the Doge’s Palace, the Sansovino Library, the Bell tower and the incredible legends of the Clock tower. Skip the line entry into Saint Mark’s Basilica, which majestically symbolizes the lagoon and enshrines the city’s history and Saints’ relics. With its awe-inspiring gold mosaics we will walk you through to one of the main highlights of the Basilica the “Pala D’Oro” (Golden altar) with masterpieces by generations of Venetian Goldsmiths, and universally recognized as one of the most refined and accomplished works of Byzantine craftsmanship and the most precious treasure in the Basilica. Your tour continues with the Doges Palace “Palazzo Ducale”, a magnificent combination of Byzantine, Gothic and Renaissance architecture. It was once the residence of the Doge, the elected ruler of the city. Pass through the lavish chambers, which display masterpieces by Tintoretto, Titian, Veronese and Bellini, and learn about the different roles played by the Doge and his counsellors. Walk through the eerie, narrow passageways towards the prison cells whilst hearing about the prisoners and of course, Casanova, perhaps Venice’s most famous and intriguing escapee. Your day ends with a boat tour on the Grand Canal. You will cruise along some of the city’s more secluded waterways to enjoy the picturesque small bridges and ‘off the beaten track’ sights, to introduce you to quieter waters. The beautiful facades of the city can only be seen from the canals. Enjoy a glass of the famous Bellini cocktail while taking in the sights. B
