Overview
Packed to the rafters with sights, Venice is a city where time passes fast. Don't waste a second getting lost amid bridges and crowds and instead explore with a guide to discover the highlights and history in minimal time. See the Rialto Bridge and gems, such as the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, where many Venetian doges were laid to rest. Choose from a 15-person small-group tour or a private option.

With tales of maritime Venice ringing in your ears, stroll around the cobbles, exploring neighborhoods, such as Cannaregio and the sight-laden enclaves of San Marco and Rialto. Cross the Rialto Bridge and then amble past Marco Polo’s House, where the intrepid explorer is said to have been born. Hear tales of Titian, the painter who adopted the city as his own and see the Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari, where he was laid to rest. Continue through Campo San Bartolomeo to see the Basilica of Santi Giovanni e Paolo, where many of the city’s doges lay buried. Then pause by Scuola Grande di San Rocco, a palace (palazzo) rich with Tintoretto art. Your tour ends at St. Mark’s Square.

The guide was a delight. She taught us how to smile with a mask. Her quick witted sense of humour made the tour very entertaining. She states at the beginning of the tour that she will not be taking us to the usual historical places, butrather will take us round the back routes
