This shore excursion introduces you to this wonderfully unique city on the water. Venice's layers of history and mazes of calle can seem like a big undertaking to first-time visitors, but with a little guidance and the proper presentation, the city becomes yours to discover.
This tour is a complete introduction to Venice, from its foundation to its historical significance today, covering the must-see sites and more! You will meet your experienced local guide at the exit of the people mover in Piazzale Roma and head to beautiful St Mark's square. In a short introductory history of the city, your guide will reveal the architectural wonders of Venice's largest piazza: the ornate, Byzantine St. Mark's Basilica, the majestic Doge's Palace, Sansovino's Library and the Bell Tower.
Afterwards your guide will help you to orient yourself in the city as you walk through Venice like the locals do, crossing bridges and snaking through the interconnected streets and canals. The tour concludes in the best way, with a visit to the lively commercial center of the Rialto whose stunning views, outdoor market and rows of shops have been captivating visitors for centuries. You will then return to the port with plenty of time before you ship's departure.
