What to expect

You call the shots on this private tour in Venice. There are visits pencilled in to see St. Marco’s Square and Rialto, as well as the chance to customise your day and explore the ‘Floating City’ under your own steam. Illaria, one of our expert, local guides, says, ‘Picture this – Gondolas gliding over the Grand Canal, the scent of fresh seafood wafting through the air and the iconic Rialto Bridge towering above it all. Rialto is where you’ll get a snapshot of the real Venice.’

Get your cameras ready at St. Marco’s Square and waltz right into the majestic Basilica with skip-the-line tickets. Brace yourselves for over 8,000 square metres of mosaics, shimmering with Byzantine gold. Your local expert will spill the tea on this historic hotspot, where East meets West in a dazzling fusion of cultures. See the iconic bronze horses – a symbol of the city – where you can choose to snag an extra ticket for an up-close encounter from the Basilica’s terrace.

Next up, you’ll make your way to Rialto, zigzagging through a maze of alleyways, quaint bridges, and charming streets known as ‘campi’. Here, you’ll have the chance to discover vibrant markets, bustling streets, and the infectious buzz of Venetian life. Don’t forget to strike a pose near the Rialto Bridge – those elegant arches and panoramic views make it the perfect backdrop for Insta-worthy snaps over the Grand Canal. And don’t forget, if there’s something you’re desperate to see, this fully customisable tour has you covered - just ask your guide on the day.
