Why this Event?

A combined city tour that allows you to discover the most important historical places and buildings of Venice. This tour is divided into two parts. From a centrally located meeting point you will be lead by a professional guide through the most characteristic places around the areas of Saint Mark's Square and Castello.
After this walk, you will enjoy a view of the city from the water, on board a Gondola.

The tour starts with a historical introduction in St. Marks’s Square, and its architectural delights, allowing you to discover the history of the Doge’s Palace, once the seat of the power of the Republic of Venice, and the surrounding buildings. Leaving the square, you will be guided into the residential Castello area, allowing you to discover this part of Venice in all of its elegance, through its labyrinth of narrow alleys - “calli”, many bridges, winding canals and wide picturesque squares - “campi”.

You can expect to discover campo Santa Maria Formosa, one of the largest squares in Venice with its church, named after its visitation of the Holy Virgin; campo Santi Giovanni and Paolo where you will be able to admire the famous church, the resting place of several Doges, and the equestrian monument of Bartolomeo Colleoni, an Italian mercenary Captain.
The former residence of Marco Polo, probably the most famous Venetian merchant and the Malibran theatre are also part of the itinerary.

After the walking tour, you will be accompanied to campo San Moisè, the landing stage of the famous venetian transportation, the Gondola.
Relax aboard this historic vessel, enjoying the thrills of both the Grand Canal and minor canals.
Admire Venice from this amazing point of view, witness its magnificent architecture, and whilst gliding under its bridges, discover secret entrances to the elegant palaces and hidden corners. The gondola ride is not a guided tour.
This 2 hour combined tour concludes in Campo San Moisè, a short walk from Saint Mark’s Square.

This was so much easier than having to find parking and navigate the memorials on our own. We had plenty of time to leave the bus and explore the memorials up close.

My daughter and I went on the memorial/monument tour. Big Al was our tour guide and did an awesome job! We went to DC for a week and this was our favorite tour! We got to see so much in such a short amount of time! Would recommend and would do it again!

Tour was cancelled. Given vouchers to Big Bus Tour. Their bus broke down and we walked most of the tour. Not what I was expecting.
