Overview
Discovering Venice in just one day is possible if you plan ahead and book this combo tour, which ensures you maximize your time. Get your bearings on a guided walking tour of Venice’s historic center, save time with skip-the-line tickets for St Mark’s Basilica, and take a sightseeing cruise along the Grand Canal. Plus, enjoy free time in between for sightseeing and souvenir shopping.
What to Expect

Meet your guide near St Mark’s Square where you learn about Venice’s history before setting out on a 2-hour walking tour.

Stop along the way to admire landmarks such as Doge’s Palace and Scuola Grande di San Marco, before arrival at St Mark’s Basilica. Using your skip-the-line ticket, head inside to marvel at the magnificent cathedral.

Follow your guide through the quiet backstreets of Venice and stroll along the scenic canals. Admire the gothic palazzos around Campo Santa Maria Formosa and pose for photos on the Rialto Bridge, before bidding your guide, who provides boat tour meetup info, farewell.

Between your walking tour and boat cruise, enjoy free time to discover Venice independently.

Make your way to the pier for your cruise and take a water taxi for a sightseeing tour. Set sail along the Grand Canal and enjoy views of Venice from the water from its canals.

Your tour ends back at the pier.

By land or sea, this tour is a winner

What a way to see Venice! From St Mark’s Square to the twisting, turning allies, over bridges and through plazas we traveled in a queue. Afraid we’d never find our way back without our guide, we traveled throughout the old city. After a break, our...More

Great guides and a great way to learn about Venice

My father and I did the walking tour and the boat tour and thought it was the ideal combination. The heavens opened halfway through our walking tour - in complete disagreement with the weather forecast! - and our guide Eleanora coped fantastically, taking care of...More

Great

Great way to get a feel of Venice. Very informative. Only problem is that it is really two separate tours and a lot of information was repeated. Lucky we were staying close by as we had a three hour gap to fill.More

Our experience was dependent on the size of the walking tour group. We got bumped to the later boat ride and had a boat to ourselves for our party with a guide. Just show up on time. They’ll accommodate you.
