THE "GRAND TOUR" OF VENICE: 

SHORE EXCURSION  ON FOOT AND BY BOAT 

St Mark's Square with priority entrance to the Basilica - private watertaxi navigation along Grand Canal to Murano - visit to top glass factory - back streets stroll in Venice - Rialto Bridge & market
                                                              

This tour is designed to be a complete introduction to Venice in just four hours.

Of course St Mark's Square and the interior of the  Basilica  (which cannot be done

if there is "acqua alta", high water, or religious celebration days), with an overview of

all the  celebrated monuments here.

 This part of the tour will allow our guides to provide a well-articulated historical

introduction to the city: its genesis, apogee and decline, through the course of time,

spanning from the 9th to the 19th century !

We will then board a private launch to navigate the Grand Canal on our way to Murano.

From this waterway, which is still the main thoroughfare here, we will admire the

homes of the rich and powerful in past and present Venice,  with their particular

styles and stories.


 

 

Your guide will also stress the accent on today's problems about the preservation

of this most unique cultural heritage which is Venice.

 

 We continue up to the Northern Lagoon to visit the island of Murano, a major center 

of glassblowing for 800 years. On Mondays through Fridays you will see an actual

production line at one of the top glass factories.

 

After returning to Venice from Murano we will have enough time to explore the

back streets, where the Venetians live, to savour the everyday life  in an intricate

maze of ancient narrow alleyways,  large and lively squares with magnificent buildings,

meandering canals,coming finally to Rialto, the bustling "heart" of Venice.
