Essence of Venice Small Group Tour with Skip the Line Basilica Tickets

This was a very informative tour of St Marco's Basilica, and surrounding areas. Our guide was lovely and shared a wealth of information on the history of Venice and its people. Simply the only way to do it in summer when the queues outside St Marco's basilica are enormous. ...Liz S., Australia – See more reviews

Description

Go on a small group tour of the highlights of Venice, as well as parts of the so called Hidden Venice.

Visit St Mark's Basilica with its extraordinary mosaics and learn about the Byzantine influence. During the tour of the Basilica, you will also visit the magnificent Pala D'Oro.

Explore Hidden Venice by following a labyrinth of small alleys and enchanting open squares where you will learn how a city built on swamps became one of the most enlightened cities in the western world; why it was rightly called La Serenissima, the most Serene of all Republics; and how all of a sudden it lost its independence when Napoleon conquered it back in 1797.

The tour will end at the Bridge of Sighs, next to St. Mark's Square.

This is a must do tour to understand the history of the past and of the present of the most unique city in the world!
