Venice (Italy)

Gondolas, canals, stunning buildings and the unmistakable air of romance.

Welcome to the City of Masks

Explore two of the islands surrounding Venice, ride a gondola, stroll around St Mark’s Square, visit the Doge’s Palace and Basilica di San Marco, cross the Rialto Bridge, explore the maze of winding alleys and hidden narrow backstreets and have lunch by the Grand Canal.

St. Mark’s Square was the political and religious centre of the city when La Serenissima ruled an empire. Here you meet with your guide who will take you on a visit to the Doge’s Palace that housed the private residence of the Doge, the seat of government and the Court of Justice. The original palace was started in the Byzantine style during the 9th century and was destroyed by fire several times during its history.

No visit to Venice would be complete without a ride on a gondola: you will ride through the magical canals of Venice and look at the light reflections glistening on the water.
