Description

Let your guide's informative commentary illuminate the city's must-see monuments for you!

Your trip will begin at Rialto Bridge, which will take you into the city cente and the historical house of Marco Polo. You will also cross Campo SS Giovanni e Paolo and Campo Santa Maria Formosa whose architecture reveals a lot about the history of the city.

On the way back, you will visit the Bridge of Sighs and St Mark's Basilica with your guide. Thanks to your skip-the-line ticket, you won't need to wait in the long queues!

While inside the Basilica, you can head up to the roof terrace where you will have time to relax and admire the stunning view over Piazza San Marco.

And that's not all! You will round off your trip with a visit to the Doge's Palace. With your guide, you will explore the Palace's interior and discover all its secrets!
