Byzantine Venice Walking tour with St Mark's Basilica and Gondola ride

The tour starts with a historical introduction in St. Marks’s Square, and its architectural delights.
Leaving the square, you can expect to discover campo Santa Maria Formosa, campo SS Giovanni and Paolo and more.

After the walking tour, you will need to make your way to campo San Moisè, the landing stage of the famous venetian transportation, the Gondola.
Relax aboard this historic vessel, enjoying the thrills of both the Grand Canal and minor canals.
The gondola ride is not a guided tour.
Once disembarked from the Gondola, you will need to make your way back to the original meeting point, to then be accompanied to the Basilica, once the private chapel of the Doge of Venice.

We are the only tour operator with special authorization to be seated in the central nave inside the Basilica.
The tour includes the visit of the famous Pala d'Oro, an altarpiece made of gold and silver and an exquisite example of Byzantine art with a myriad of gems and precious stones.
