In connection with the audio commentary, the tour gives a good overview of the sights of the city. The journey started on time, the driver was correct. It was kept on request. The bus was getting old, the roof was damaged and the seats wet and dirty at 10.30 a.m. at the start of the first tour. It should also be considered whether the route is not better offered with a smaller vehicle due to the road conditions. This is excellent, for example, in Trieste.

The bus stop in piazza erbe 5 was not there so we had to keep scanning the road for the bus. However, the driver was incredibly helpful and friendly. Unfortunately, the church on one of the stops was closed. As the buses only run every hour or so we had to walk to our next destination. It’s advisable to check the different times at the stops.

good tour, the guide explains in detail everything about Andrea Palladio, his life and how he became one of the best, if not the best, Renaissance architect in Veneto. we visit the olympic theater (a work of art) and several Palladian buildings (the basilica, and some palaces)

Very easy to book.

Very informative. Good bus driver. Only one problem, didn't switch on the air condition when we were seated in the lower deck. My children were all ' melting. '

To try, intrigues, absolute novelty for me, interesting
