Get an animated description of majestic St. Mark’s Basilica in Piazza San Marco, and learn the function of the Doge's Palace. Hear about the ornate St. Mark's Clocktower and the 3 connected buildings of the Procuratie. Then, make your way to the Campo Santa Maria Formosa to see the Basilica di San Giovanni e Paolo, where all of the city's doges were buried after the 15th century.

Was a top tour guide who brought the most important key points about Venice over well in the short time - and also places that you don't get to see otherwise - and it was an exciting tour. I can only recommend the guided tour in the morning, as there are still relatively few tourists around at this time.

Our guide was great, we learned a lot about the city and the tour was just the right amount of time. Even little thingS you wouldn’t noticed at first become evident as the tour guide points them out to you.... super cool experience and highly recommended. We even had the tour while the high tie was in which was a good reflection of the tour company (not to cancel)

I can only recommend this tour to everyone !!!!!!!!!!!!!

The tour was great. If you think you have been in all the alleys around St. Mark's Square ........... no, you can still discover new alleys, churches and squares etc. It is really worth it and if you take the tour at 9 a.m. in the morning, the streets are still pretty empty. :-)
