We start our combination tour with a classical gondola ride, On this unique exploration of the Venetian romantic canals, unwind and relax into the gentle rhythms and movements of the Grand Canal, appreciating the skill involved in steering the gondola through the intricate waterways of the city. 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! This charming tour will take you one step closer to the romantic facades of Venice and will enable you to understand what it was to be truly Venetian.

Your next tour starts in front of the Correr museum in Saint Mark's square where you will meet your professional english speaking guide. We start the tour discovering the buildings in the square and then we skip the line into Saint Marks Basilica which majestically symbolise the lagoon and enshrines the city’s history and Saints relics. With its awe – inspiring gold mosaics our talented guide will walk you through to one of the main highlights of the Saint Mark's Basilica, the “Pala d’Oro” (Golden altar), with masterpieces by generations of Venetian Goldsmiths, universally recognised as one of the most refined and accomplished works of Byzantine craftsmanship and the most precious treasure in the Saint Mark's Basilica.
