Delve into Venetian history on a 3-hour tour that showcases two of the city's most iconic structures and sheds light on the stories behind them both. Enjoy entrance access to your first stop: legendary St. Mark's Basilica. Wander around the mosaic-covered interior and Byzantine treasures while a local guide fills you in on how this collection came to be. Then continue to the Doge’s Palace to explore the former political heart of Venice.
One of the best tours I have been on, thanks to the fabulous tour guide who was extremely knowledgeable and so obviously enthusiastic about the subject matter. This was infectious! My 15 year old son, who almost always finds tours boring, was enthralled. It's a bit long for a hot day, but worth persevering in my opinion.
The tour includes entrance fees, so we could skip the queues and get the most from the visits. There is a steep staircase to get to the horses on the balcony of St. Marks Basilica, but handrails help enormously. I had no problem with it, but my 81 year old mother-in-law found it a bit hard going she made it, and loved the resulting views.
Our tour guide was Marina, but I believe the other tour guides also have favourable reviews, so it's obviously a well-run tour company.
This tour was wonderful, perfect for if you have only a day or 2 in Venice. The tour guide was friendly and considerate. Very interesting history!
Outstanding tour; Mose (tour guide) was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot of history as we saw these sites. Skip the Line with a guide is the only way to see these sites in Venice! Two Huge Thumbs Up for the Tour!
Tour was very good. Our tour guide Elena was excellent and very knowledgeable. St Mark’s Basilica and Doge’s palace are must see places in Venice. Our family would recommend this tour very highly
This was an extensive 3 plus hour tour of the Basilica and Doge's Palace. Donatella was our guide and did a wonderful job of explaining both the history of the area as well as the protocol for visiting theses sites. She kept remarkable tract of a fairly large group of us and somehow made it all so pleasant. Would certainly use Italy Walks again.
Amazing tour which was largely down to the tour guide Alessandro. He was so passionate about the history of Venice and certainly knew his stuff - he kept us all together and entertained throughout the tour. I would recommend this to anyone. Thank you Alessandro
Our tour guide was great and made the experience very enjoyable. She was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. It was so worth it to skip the line since we visited in July.
Our guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and interesting. The group was a good size for the tour.
Marina was great and had a sense of humor and historical knowledge to make the tour engaging. She pointed out details we would have missed visiting these two sites on our own. Skipping the line, especially during summer, is the only way to go!
Totally enjoyed every minute. So much to see and learn. Breathtakingly beautiful. Our guide was extremely informative and personable.
