Your English speaking tour representative will meet you at the Cruise Terminal in Venice Port, for this Venice Half Day tour.

Let your Venice Half Day Tour begin, with a boat ride to Piazza Saint Marco!

Your first stop will be the Palazzo Ducale, or Doge’s Palace, residence of the Doge of Venice, and ancient HQ of Venice’ Government for more than a thousand years. You will find this location extraordinarily detailed in all its ornaments and decorations both inside and out.

Your professional English speaking guide will happily explain to you the intricate political system of the Venetian Republic, and show you, in an interesting description, some famous creations by renowned artists such as Tintoretto. While visiting the Doge’s Palace, you will have the opportunity of walking around La Sala del Gran Consiglio, the Hall of the Grand Council, a monumental hall that hosts the World’s largest Canvas among many other extraordinary works of art.

Of course, you can’t miss the chance to walk on the “Bridge of Sighs”, Il Ponte dei Sospiri and visit the Venetian Republic’s State prison.

As one of the final experiences, you’ll return to Piazza San Marco Square, where your professional guide will give you a meticulous description of the venue.
This Square is so famous, because of its structural relevance: it is in the heart of the City, the only square in Venice and it’s surrounded by unique, historical buildings. As a result, it creates a magical atmosphere of happiness, art and beauty, for its exceptional and ancient history.

The amazing thing is that the Square is always full of life: Children’s laughter, chatter and music and little cafés where you can enjoy some time to relax, have an Espresso, some homemade gelato, maybe.

Another thing you absolutely have to try is a traditional gondola ride. Take a stroll through the many canals such as Canal Grande and take in the scenery.

*Upon request we can arrange a private transfer back to the cruise ship after the Half Day tour in Venice
