Start your trip with four days to get to know the watery world of Venice. There’s much to see and do but a walking tour will help you slow down, so you can take in all the big and little details of canal life, historical squares and famed churches, and with a private guide by your side, you’ll be able to ask as many questions as you like.
From St Mark’s square, have an introduction to the most powerful maritime empire of the Mediterranean Sea. The Doges’ Palace, the Square, the Basilica are highlights and San Zaccaria is considered to be one of the most beautiful churches of Venice. You’ll stay at elegant Ca’Sagredo, overlooking the Grand Hotel and perfectly placed for taking a water taxi into the heart of Venice. Make time to zip around the islands of the lagoon in a vaporetto, visiting Murano for its renowned glassware and Burano for its brightly-hued fishing community and seafood restaurants.
