Full description
Catch the train from Rome to Venice to enjoy seven hours in the famous lagoon city. Your full-day pass includes return tickets on the high-speed train from central Rome to the center of Venice and a ferry pass with a validity of 12 hours for the public transport system along on the Canal Grande. You will be accompanied to Rome's train station to make sure you catch the right train, but the day will be yours to explore at leisure. The 3.5-hour journey to Santa Lucia Station in Venice takes you to the mainland, but a tour coordinator will meet you there to give you tips on how to easily get to places of interest. With your complimentary maps and suggested itineraries at hand, wander through the labyrinthine calli (streets) and across mythical bridges. Head for San Marco to use your skip-the-line ticket to the Basilica. Go next door to the Doge's Palace and stand on the Bridge of Sighs for unforgettable moments and photo shots. Another route follows the Sestiere, from Piazza San Marco to the Palazzo Grassi. Admire the Church of San Moise and Teatro La Fenice, as well as the Campo Santa Maria del Giglio, Campo Santo Stefano and Accademia Bridge. If you want to explore a more local neighborhood, go to San Polo, characterized by homes that also function as shops. This is a great area to taste food specialties of Veneto in one of the many taverns or typical 'bàcari', where you can try some authentic 'cicheti' (small tapas-like snacks). With your 12-hour ferry pass, all areas of Venice are easy to reach. You could even relax on a cruise along the Canal Grande, watching close-to-water Byzantine buildings and villas passing by. Enjoy some time to shop, or try a gelato or Italian coffee before you make your way back to the train station, where a group coordinator will be waiting to help you catch the train back to Rome.

Very good!

What I did not like that to find the person who took us to Vaneceia was difficult and I almost lost the tour. They should have a pink jacket to identify him and be more exact in the meeting area that the square where he stays is large. For everything else, I loved it. Mariel very attentive, pleasant, was always at all times guiding us and answering doubts. Very professional . Thanks Mariel

I liked it, except for the problem of the meeting point.

Unfortunately, I had problems to reach the "right" meeting place, because I took the "wrong" meeting point to Gmap and got there first the wrong information and too late then ran to the station. Totally stressed and panicky, I found the group and it started, because a time buffer of 20 minutes had been installed, of which I did not know anything before.

Very well organized, exceptional guide

Too bad Venice is increasingly 1_ / city mostly with tourists.It is confused, were not the guide, would feel lost and insecure, with so narrow alley, similar and endless tourists Not lost the charm of always, but just a day to do the tourist circuit. It's a shame. The very friendly and competent guide is worth a high grade
