Itinerary

You will be picked up from the starting point of the tour (depending on your location) and taken for sightseeing tour of Venice . A bilingual guide (English and German-speaking) will accompany you on this tour.

Drive by coach from Verona to Venice on the Autostrada Serenissima, a 150km jaunt that will pass in an arresting blur of Italian countryside and cityscapes.

Park on the island of Tronchetto and enjoy a beautiful boat ride to Saint Mark’s Square, the main piazza in Venice, popularly known as “the drawing room of Europe.”

The rest of the day belongs to you, with 4-5 hours to take in one of the world’s most seductive cities.

The 118 islands that compose Venice are slivered by 150 canals and connected by some 400 bridges. The city’s iconic black gondolas glide through the canals, piloted by master oarsmen who carry themselves with the composure of centuries.

Venice brims with Gothic palaces, intimate art galleries, Byzantine basilicas, and venerable opera houses, with a surprise around each corner.
