Description

As you wander the streets and piazzas of central Venice, hear stories about how Venice was built and how it became one of the world's oldest republics. Listen as your guide weaves tales about Venice's most famous residents, the parties that earned the city its name and the culture that has made it one of the world's most popular destinations.

Start off at the Rialto Bridge. Then go through the winding streets and over the tiny bridges of Venice as we delve into the heart of the city. Visit Marco Polo's house and hear about the Venetian son who went to sea one day and came back with stories of China and a world in the East that few had ever seen. Encounter the lively piazzas of Campo SS Giovanni e Paolo and Campo Santa Maria Formosa, where Byzantine influences, Renaissance buildings and modern structures tell the eclectic story of the city's development.

See the Bridge of Sighs on our way to our final and most impressive stop. After marveling over St. Mark's Square, skip the long lines into St. Mark's Basilica. Marvel at the diversity of Venetian culture as your guide points out the spots where eastern architecture and western design have blended to create a structure with an onion dome that could only have been created in Venice. With less time waiting outside, have more time to admire the beautiful frescoes inside the basilica, before stealing some extra time with a climb up to the famous terraces of St. Mark's. Rarely included on guided tours, the terraces offer beautiful views over the piazza, photo opportunities and some down-time to soak up everything you have learned on your guided tour.
