Overview

Combine two quintessential Venice experiences on this short and sweet 1.5-hour tour. First, glide down the Grand Canal on a traditional gondola ride and soak up the atmosphere of romantic Venice. Then, enjoy skip-the-line entrance and a guided tour of the magnificent St Mark's Basilica.
  • 1.5-hour Venice Gondola ride and St Mark’s Basilica tour
  • Explore the canals of Venice on a romantic gondola ride
  • Enjoy a skip-the-line tour of St. Mark’s Basilica
  • Ideal tour for first-time visitors to Venice or those short on time
Meet your guide at Campo San Moisè 15 minutes before your departure time and set out to explore Venice’s scenic canals. First, join a shared gondola tour with up to six people, and soak up the atmosphere of Venice on a romantic cruise through the historic center.

After your gondola tour, meet back up with your guide for the second part of your tour – a visit to the iconic St Mark’s Basilica. Follow your guide to St Mark’s Square to marvel at the cathedral’s magnificent Byzantine-era façade, then use your skip-the-line tickets to dodge the queues and head straight inside.

Inside, admire the lavish interiors, peek into the Treasury, and explore the remarkable Golden Basilica, once the private chapel of the Doges of Venice. After taking in the highlights of the basilica, your tour ends back in St Mark’s Square.

I learned a lot from the Golden Basilica Tour. I only wish I could have spend more time in the basilica and gone to the top. We got to see Mozart's house during the Gondola tour! Was extraordinary.

The company running the tour was rude on the phone. I was late due to water bus.I met up with the group after the gondola ride to go in the church. Met up with the tour, the lady was very rude, men were nice. They put me on a later gondola ride. Hard to understand lady guiding church tour.

Not a very good start, the guide was late to our meeting point. Really enjoyed the gondola ride, this is a must when in Venice. The tour of the Basilica was disappointing, not in the information given during it or the inside of the church, but the fact that there seemed to be too many tours happening at the same time and it did feel a bit rushed. We lost our place at one point as another tour had jumped in which resulted in two groups being mixed together. Was not given proper information as to where to meet afer the gondola ride, only to meet by the clock tower in St Marcs square. Not very well organised and could be better.

Not so good. First, the organization of the tour was poor. They didn't communicate very well with us where to go, gondola driver spent the whole trip on the phone and texting and was completely disinterested and the tour guide of st marks was incomprehensible. The city is amazing, as is the church
