Itinerary

Skip the Line: Doge's Palace Tour (2 hours):
Meet your guide at the entrance to the Royal Gardens in Venice and stroll to the Doge's Palace, the magnificent Venetian-Gothic building from where the leaders of the former Venetian Republic ruled until the late 18th century. Head inside and explore the grandiose public chambers that the doges lavished with fine art and ornamentation. Masterpieces by Renaissance champions Tintoretto and Veronese adorn the walls and ceilings, framing the palace’s grand staircases and arcade statues.

Learn about the doges as you walk around, and hear of the power and treachery that characterized their reign. Ruling the republic with iron fists, the doges established a network of prisons at the palace so they could keep a close eye on their foes. Wander across the Bridge of Sighs, built to connect the palace to the prisons, and pose for photos against the backdrop of the palace. Your walking tour then finishes outside the palace.

Skip the Line: Venice Walking Tour with St Mark’s Basilica (2 hours):
Leave St Mark’s Square and set off on your walking tour to discover Venice’s highlights and top attractions. Soak up the hustle and bustle of St Mark’s Square, and head inside St Mark’s Basilica to admire its interiors. Marvel at the marble floors and ogle the gilded mosaics that blanket the walls and ceilings. The canopy over the high altar dazzles with gold and gems, and the treasury room holds an array of Crusader spoils plundered from the ancient city of Constantinople.

Head out of the basilica and discover the canal walkways and pretty bridges that typify the city. Learn of legendary Venetians such as Marco Polo with his globe-trotting adventures and other famous landmarks. After 2 hours, your tour finishes near Rialto Bridge.

Venice Grand Canal Boat Tour (1 hour):
Hop aboard your small motorboat at the water’s edge near St Mark’s Square, and then cruise around Venice’s impressive Grand Canal. The busiest stretch of water is also the city’s most photogenic, and the Baroque churches and gondola stations that line the water provide elegant photo opportunities.

As you cruise through the Grand Canal, learn about the city and its beautiful architecture from your guide. Pass Gothic palaces and churches, hear stories about Rialto Bridge and medieval merchants’ warehouses and explore the lesser-visited canals that comprise Venice’s atmospheric backstreets. After an hour on the water, cruise back to the start point where your Super Saver tour finishes.

Our guide was hard to understand, it was SO HOT and crowded inside the Palace-it was nic, but too long and too much information in such a short time period.

Andrea did a wonderful and informative job in his tour and description of the palace and the Doges who occupied this seat of government. He was very enthusiastic and presented the history in a vey captivating way.

Louisel, our guide for the Doge was very friendly and knew so muc! In the afternoon we had Federica for the walking tour and shr was pretty good but she did talk about some things we didnt need to know a lot about her kids...which is fine but it was a lot of talk about them. Then in the afternoon we had the boat ride with Max who was so funny and knowledgeable, this was the best part of the day! The only stressful part was the lady that checked us in as as she didnt give us the stickers she was meant to for us yo wear so they knew we were in the group, then she neglected to tell us what time to meet for the boat trip.

Really good tours. Excellent tour of the Doge's palace. Then St Mark's Basilica. The skip the line was really important here followed by a nice walking tour of the quieter parts of Venice with lots of good background/historic information provided. Excellent local guide with good English. In the afternoon the tour/s included a water taxi ride that lasted about an hour. Great to see Venice from the water and the trip through some of the closer islands and the Grand canal. Once again an excellent guide. Great value for money.

Planned on starting early and being done by 1-2pm... Wrong! Did the Palace tour at 9am excellent. Because it was Sunday Basilica tour did not start until after 12n. Basilica okay felt rushed. Walking tour was good. We were told the canel tour did not start until 5:30pm [we were booked after those that just booked the canel tour is what we were told] We left [my husband had a knee replacement 5months ago too much waiting around] The couple we were with stayed but didn't take the tour. They said the boat was way too crowded to see anything. We were very disappointed with the whole thing!

Our tour guide was good, and made sure we knew the tickets for the Doge's Palace were also good for the other museums in San Marco Square we visited them the next day. The walking tour took us a little further afield than I might have ventured on my own, and made me feel more comfortable exploring. The boat tour was also lovely.
