Full description
Spend the day in one of the world’s most romantic cities on a full-day tour to Venice from Lake Garda. Transfer across the Veneto by air-conditioned bus, and then hop on a private boat to the heart of the city. Following your pick-up from various points in the Lake Garda region, including Limone, Riva del Garda and Bardolino, transfer to Venice with a short coffee break near Soave. The estimated time of arrival in Venice is 11:00 AM.

Upon arrival, hop on a private boat and cross the lagoon to St. Mark's. Take a 40 minute walking tour, with a guide and headphones of St Mark's and see many of the city’s most famous landmarks, such as St. Mark's Basilica, the Bridge of Sighs, and the Campanile. Stroll the main streets to the Rialto Bridge and other monuments of “La Serenissima.”

Learn more about the Republic of Venice and how it came to dominant both the east and the west as the “Queen of the Adriatic.” Universally considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the city is built on a group of 117 small islands that are separated by canals. The central sestiere (district) is awash with beautiful squares and crumbling mansions, along with ancient churches, ateliers and bridges.

In the afternoon you will have some free time to relax and explore on your own. Get off the beaten path for a more authentic look at everyday life in the city, or just sit back and people watch in one of the many cafés of Piazza San Marco. A boat will be waiting to take you from St. Mark's Square to the transfer bus at approximately 5:45 PM.

it was a successful day, very well organized. were picked up on time in Limone, our tour guide Roxy explained a lot and well to us, information about Venice and history, on the bus and later on during the tour. Then we booked the gondola and lagoon ride, which we did not regret. The food we ate in the recommended restaurant (menu for 15 €) was not a hit. But we would book there again because everything was fine.

Great tour, lots of experience.

Our tour guide Ambrash was there with body and soul. He told us a lot and also organized a gondola ride and boat tour. We were glad that we went through both, so we saw Venice from different sides. What was not so nice, there was a family with three small children (1, 1 and 3 years), who were just howling or even howling. This excursion (10 hours) should have a minimum age. This is definitely not for toddlers. That also annoyed me on the bus ride.

Perfect day, well organized

We were in Venice with our children and everything went well. Travel guide very fun and nice. We took the boat trip instead of the gondola ride (20 euros) and it was the right decision. After 2 hours of walking through the city (at 31 degrees) it was just nice to sit.
