Full description
Enjoy a 2.5-hour evening stroll around Venice with a private guide, and experience the city at its most magical. The tour takes you to some of the 118 islands of the lagoon, and ends on beautiful St. Mark’s Square, where a 30-minute gondola ride awaits

Meet at the small square of the Campo San Giacometto, just steps from the Ponte di Rialto and Grand Canal. Admire the most antique church in Venice, built in 421 AC by a carpenter who devoted himself to San Giacomo to save Venice from a deadly fire.

Next, admire the Rialto Bridge over the Grand Canal. Built between 1588 and 1591 by Antonio da Ponte, the bridge is a superb example of Venetian engineering. Wander along the canals to discover magnificent palaces and monuments. There will also be time to see some of the city’s renowned boutiques.

Walk to St. Mark’s Square, the political and religious heart of the Venetian Empire, and be dazzled by the evening illuminations of the Byzantine façade of the Basilica, Bell Tower and Doge's Palace.

End with an enchanting 30-minute gondola ride through centuries of history, passing elegant palaces lapped by the canals. Admire the boat skills of your gondolier as they navigate their craft through the intricate waterways.
