Spend a delightful day in Venice with three best-selling tours. Choose from two different touring options to suit your schedule. With either option, begin your day with a 9am skip-the-line tour of the Doge’s Palace. Afterward, opt to explore the city at your leisure for 1 hour before the start of your next tour, or meet your next guide right away. Enjoy skip-the-line access to the glorious St Mark’s Basilica, followed by a walking tour of the city’s quieter backstreets and historic treasures. Complete your day with an exciting motorboat cruise down palazzo-lined banks of the Grand Canal. See Itinerary below for tour details.

The Doge Palace was fantastic, the Basilica was not that great of a tour. Very short, brief and didn't really see as much as expected. Apparently that was on another tour.More

Thank you for your positive feedback about our Doges Palace tour - we will certainly forward your comments to Arianna and we are pleased to read the tour was informative and wonderful.
Our day started out with a 2 hour tour through Doges Palace and our guide was excellent. Great insight to historical and architectural details and entertaining as well. I feel like our walking tour of the city couldn’t quite match the high standard set for...More

Thank you for the 5-star feedback about our special offer combo tour combining two walking tours and an afternon boat tour. As we are in super high season in Venice arranging tours with skip the line tickets is indeed strongly recommended in order...More
I think you are better off only doing the Doge’s Palace only in the AM. Unless you absolutely want to see yet another church (don’t he me wrong it is very impressive) but is is another church. I you have been in other tours and...More

The tour is in 3 parts. The first 2 parts - Doges and the Basilica both have the same meeting point with time in between so you can eat and shop. The 3rd part Grand Canal has a different meeting point and is on a boat. The first 2 portions have a lot of walking, especially Doges. The first tour started around 9 am and we probably finished the last portion after 3pm. There is plenty of time between the 3 tours to eat, drink and shop.

Hello, we dock at 8.00am on 27th. Have you had people from the cruise ships that have arrived that morning? I am just wondering if we would be off the ship and to your meeting point in time? If we do not make it would we be able to do the first part of the tour the following morning (ie our ship leaves early afternoon the following day so not enough time to do full tour then) Thank you.
