Get acquainted with the architectural gems and proud history of Venice on a combo walking tour of the city center followed by a guided visit to the city’s crown jewels — the Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica. Step inside the Gothic palace that once held both Venice’s leaders and prisoners, and then admire the gold mosaics and ornate altars of the grand Byzantine basilica. Reserved entry means you'll skip the long lines at these two popular attractions, leaving more time to soak up the romance of ‘La Serenissima.’

The Venice walking tour was fabulous. Guide was knowledgeable, responsive, fun. I believe this tour is also available as a separate tour. The second part, St Mark’s Basilica and Doge’s Palace was, regretfully, a disappointment. Guide was rather obsequious in tone, less available for questions, thought he was more witty than he was. Also, we weren’t able to go inside St Mark’s because of a regularly scheduled service, which, although not the guide’s fault, made me wonder why the tour would’ve been scheduled for that time on a Saturday. So next time I’d do only the walking tour alone and do the basilica and palace at another time or just go on my own.
