Tour Description

If you are on a cruise and your ship docks in Venice, for sure you have to stop there and have a walk in the city. Our Venice shore trip is the best choice for you!

Water transport in Venice can be really crowded sometimes. We will make your excursion the most comfortable from the very beginning. Our private English-speaking tour escort will meet you at your cruise dock with a private boat to take you to Venice city center.

In Venice city center , meet our private licensed guide for a 2-hour private walking tour around the city’s highlights. Enjoy the beautiful St. Mark’s Square with its famous cathedral, just before visiting the Doge’s Palace, one of the symbols of Venice ancient power on Mediterranean commerce. Let your local private guide teach you lots of interesting things about the history of Venice and its noble families. Just before the tour ends, go the magical Bridge of Sighs. What a peculiar name, isn’t it? Ask your guide about it; its history is even more peculiar to know.

At the end of the walking tour, you get some free time to walk around or have a typical Venetian lunch… You may be hungry at this point!

On request, our Venice shore trip gives you the chance to have the most Venice experience on the canals with a 30-minute pre-booked private gondola ride.
Skip the line tickets are included in your tours to give you priority entrances.
At the end of your Venice shore trip, you will meet your tour escort again to bring you back to Venice port.
