Full description
You will travel from Florence to Venice in a luxury coach and, once in the famed city, your full day exploration will begin. Following your tour leader into the heart of Venice, you will be amazed by the ornate detail of St. Mark’s Basilica standing tall in Piazza San Marco. After admiring the beauty of Piazza San Marco, make your way, at your own pace, to the Palazzo Ducale and see where Venice's powerful government once stood. As you discover the magic of Venice, it will be clear why it is loved by so many. Venice is built on water, so naturally, it is best viewed from a traditional Venetian boat, a gondola. As you float along the picturesque canals, you will be face to face with Venetian architecture and culture. A ride in a gondola (not included in price) is not to be missed. At the end of your day, meet your tour leader to head back to Florence.

This tour is worth it! On this occasion I want to highlight the work and kindness of our guide ELISABETTA BENEDETTI. Very nice, she integrated us very well into her group and although it was not stipulated that she would give a guided tour in the city of Venice, she took us to see top places and take special photos of us. In addition, I personally appreciate the celebration of my birthday with her and a new Paraguayan friend and two Mexicans. A BEAUTIFUL AND UNFORGETTABLE DAY

A destination that is worth seeing if you have not been previously…, the suffocating heat was the only bad thing about the trip. Constantino, the Guide, made it easy for us to go to a less touristy restaurant, all very good and not so expensive…, and the gondola ride that should not be missed…, I definitely recommend it

Elizabeth was a perfect guide for us. Especially knew how to find the good locations and restaurant. On the bus she already made reservations for a table and gondola. Everything was well planned and always right on schedule. The return by boat was perfect after a long day of walking in Venice. There by train and walk to the center and back by boat near the train station back for the reserved train. A perfect trip and well organized, definitely a must to do.
