GONDOLA RIDE

Let us discover Venice as locals have been doing since far back in time, sliding among the narrow canals and admiring the masterpiece of architectures, water reflections and peace away from the crowded alleys.

Venetian gondola is not only known for its elegance and the way it silently slides along the green channels of Venice. It did change over time and it has symbolic meanings related to the city. During this ride, we will have the chance to admire some among Venice’s most famous and beautiful sites seen from the water, a rare sight which can be seen only on a gondola. And be ready for the last part of the ride, because it is the one that sees the gondola flowing into the Grand Canal, revealing breathtaking views over the most famous canal of Venice and over the Salute Church.

ST. MARK’S BASILICA

Follows a guided visit to one among the most renowned and amazing cathedrals in the world: The St Mark’s Basilica

This is the place where Eastern and Western architecture run into each other, as majestic in its exteriors, as reach in the history it witnessed and represents. Here, we will learn more about the everlasting history of Venice, about St Mark and how his ruins came to rest and be shielded here.
Surrounded by the Basilica’s beautiful golden mosaics and marble inlays, our professional guide will take us along the history and the special features of this unique masterpiece of byzantine art.
Among the priceless treasures shielded in the Basilica, we will have the chance to admire the Pala d’Oro, a fine example of Byzantine art with its thousands of gems and precious stones, and of course, the golden mosaics, maybe the most famous feature of the cathedral.

A tour not only to see Venice, but to experience this city through its history and glorious past, still shining in its historical sites and legendary characters.
