Start your Venice in one day tour with a 2-hour guided walk to learn about the city’s key monuments. In St Mark’s Square, hear the history behind legendary sights such as St Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace prisons.

Admission lines at top Venice attractions are long and no more so than at St Mark’s Basilica. Use your skip-the-line ticket to bypass the lines and step straight inside. Then admire the acclaimed mosaics that adorn the basilica’s interior as you explore with your guide.

From St Mark’s Basilica, continue to Scuola Grande di San Marco (aka Ospedale Civile). Today the historic building is used as a museum and hospital, but, in its medieval heyday it functioned as a school that helped to lay the foundations for Venice’s trade empire.

Leave the tourist crowds behind, and follow your guide around the winding alleyways that form the backstreets of Venice. Explore narrow passageways that cut between sun-bleached palazzos, and admire the bridges that cross the canals.

Pass through Campo Santa Maria Formosa to see its gothic palaces, and have your camera ready for Marco Polo’s House. Other sights include an age-old merchants warehouse and a wellhead, which many say is the city’s most beautiful.

Say goodbye to your guide at Rialto Bridge, and make the most of some free time before your 1-hour water taxi cruise along the Grand Canal.

As you glide down the waterway, listen to stories about the eye-catching palaces and churches that line your route, and hear fun facts about the famous residents that have lived on the equally famous street. Continue with a tour of the smaller, lesser-seen canals. Hop back on to dry land to finish your experience in central Venice.

Please note: There will be a break between the Venice Walking Tour and Grand Canal Boat Tour, for you to spend time at leisure. The duration of this break will vary depending on the season. Details of the exact meeting location and time for the Grand Canal Boat Tour will be given by your guide after the walking tour.

We could not locate the tour guide. Therefore, we reached the tour agent office. They started scolding us for coming there without even asking what was our issue. We will not recommend this tour. We have used many other viator tours which definitely exceeded our expectations. However, definitely not this one.

We saw so much of Venice in one day thanks to this tour. The boat is a really great part of the tour, don't miss that. And wear sunscreen and a hat, it is sunny on much of the tour. Great guides!

We enjoyed the walking portion of the tour and especially the visit to St. Mark’s. Our guide provided a good overview of this amazing city, including both the main piazza and a walk through the streets of Venice. But, the highlight was the water taxi tour in the afternoon. I want to take the boat again!

Our girl talked really really fast and nearly impossible to understand. She sounded very rehearsed. She was super cute and happy. She laughed for no reason a lot between stories. Very informative about he city but had to ask several times for clarification.

This tour was informative however we felt that it was a bit long and drawn out without really learning much information about the city. Our guides were very passionate and proud of their city! This is a good option for those who have never been to Venice and only have a day to spend in the city.

I'd highly recommend this tour. Our guide was either Francesa, Fredica...started with F, a very professional young lady who cared about showing everyone around her city and was so passionate speaking about everything we got to see. She took us away from the main tourist spot of St. Marks Square, into the tiny streets that you could get lost in. Just thoroughly enjoyed it.

It was fun and learned a lot from history to culture. The Gondola ride was definitely a must!
