Venice’s Essentials in 1 day…
This tour has been designed for those who want to savor the best of Venice in a day.
Our Private Expert Guide will accompany you to see the highlights of the city and explain the social political importance of its architecture and arts. You will learn about Marco Polo, and trading that enriched the Venetians and inspired Shakespeare’s “Merchant of Venice,” and see their ancient Palaces and way of life.
The tour will start with a hour cruise by private water taxi along the Grand Canal to see its beauty as it was intended to be seen in by boat. You will then proceed to a private palace on the Grand Canal, still today owned by a “Contessa” and exclusively visited by us. You will enter the home and see the magnificent secret Italian garden and visit the nobel floor with all the original furnishings, fabrics and chandeliers and spectacular view of the Grand Canal.
After the visit you will then cruise over to the island of Murano to see the most important craft made in Venice. You will enter into a real working studio and see how the glass is blown and shaped with the original tools which have been used throughout history. After the morning tour which last 4 hours our Private Expert Guide will always accompany you back to Saint Mark’s Square by private boat and this way you will have almost circled all the main islands of Venice.
After the morning tour as described above our Private Expert Guide will accompany clients for lunch in an off beaten track restaurant that they can decide together that day.
