Highlights
  • The best of Venice in one day with direct transportation and a guided tour
  • Take in the top sights along St. Mark’s Square and the Grand Canal
  • Visit a glass-making workshop to watch a traditional artisan at work
  • Free time for a gondola ride (own expense) or independent sightseeing
What to expect
  • Spend a day in 'La Serenissima,' the city of bridges and canals, on this action-packed guided day trip to Venice from Milan. After meeting with your host in the center of Milan, hop in a comfortable coach for the 2.5-hour ride. During the journey, learn about the history of Venice or just gaze out the window at the Northern Italian countryside.  Arrive in Venice and get ready for an informative guided 2-hour walking tour. Amble over bridges and along canals. Stand in front of Renaissance palaces and learn their history. Take in the aromas of delicious Venetian fare wafting out of restaurants. Stroll along Riva degli Schiavoni, one of the city's main promenades, and then pass by the legendary Bridge of Sighs connected to the Doge's Palace. Let your guide regale you with tales of the doges of centuries past, as you perambulate into St. Mark's Square.  Stop for some photos in the pigeon-filled square. Stand in front of St. Mark's Basilica, noting its intricate facade. And don't forget to gaze up at the bell tower, a symbol of Venice. Then make your way through the narrow streets again, going over the famed Rialto Bridge, continuing along the Grand Canal to admire the grand mansions that flank the canal.  Visit some lesser-known hidden gems in Venice too! Explore the calli, a maze-like warren of narrow lanes and canals and learn about what life is like here for locals.  Take a break for lunch (at own expense) and then visit a glass-making workshop near St. Marks Square to witness skilled glassmakers plying their trade. After browsing in the gift shop and considering taking a souvenir back to Milan with you, head out on the narrow streets again, making your way for the optional 30-minute gondola ride (at your own expense) through the canals of the city. If you opt for the gondola, hop on the flat-bottomed boat, sit back and enjoy the only-in-Venice ambience.  When the time comes, return to your coach and begin the journey back to Milan.

Day trip to Venice from Milan
Aug 2019 • Couples
couple things to think about before you think about getting the tour
1. It’s a 6-7 hour bus ride there and back with 5-6 hours in Venice
2. It’s a lot of walking in Venice and your guides are usually fast and you need to keep up
3. No bathroom on the bus but they do make one stop there and back to let you go
4. Your time in Venice is at the mercy of your tour company and unless it’s slow season, you won’t have enough time to go into the basilica, the tower, go on and. Gondala rode, and maybe eat lunch.

So if you are totally okay with the first 4 things... let’s talk about the trip!! I had the luxury of taking a trip with Coty Wonders yesterday so am able to comprare the companies a bit.

First, we were picked up just as they said (6am from the hotel), by a small van. The driver was not very friendly but he got us from point A to B. While we were waiting for the people to arrive, we had 30 minutes so we decided to have some coffee across the street. If you do... DO NOT SIT DOWN and have your coffee as they will charge you 4.5 Euros for a coffee.

When the tour bus arrived, there was a few people around and we were not sure who was in charge until some man started yelling commands at us to have our paper vouchers ready. No good morning or Welcome. It’s one thing I really liked about City Wonderers...they were much more present and welcoming. The guide from Zane Viaggi almost seemed annoyed we were making them take us to Venice!

Now the BUS was awesome. Much better than city Wonderers but it was a longer trip. The seats were bigger, there was WiFi, and an outlet to plug in your phone.

During the 3-4 hour trip to Venice, the guide did give some great information about the history of Venice.
Once in Venice,you take a coveted boat through the lagoon to the other side. This is NOT a boat through the canal. It’s only across the lagoon.
Once the ship docks, we were taken on less than and hour tour of the city of Venice really pointing out the big sites and some interesting information about Venice. The glass shop could have been omitted. It was interesting to see the glass being made but really a waste of time.
We opted NOT to do the Gondala ride only because we wanted to walk around the streets of Venice more. I heard it was okay though
When we all returned to the meeting point, our guide was furious with a few tourists of the group who paid for the Gondala ride but did not understand his directions of where to meet. It was quite shocking to see him lose his mind at these folks. My advice for the guides (you are doing a tour in English which is most peoples SECOND language on the tour so be a little more patient)

Anyway... my impression was this was a good introduction to Venice but save yourself the hassle of this tour. It’s too long to get there and you have very very Little time in Venice
What I would suggest is taking a train yourself and take the 80€ walking tour of Venice with quick entrance to the Basilica and Doges palace.it would have been nice to see. And this way you stay until you are ready to leave.

Perfect Escape
This was such a fantastic tour! It was a highlight of my trip and I’m so grateful to have stumbled upon it here. Venice is dream-like especially if you get the chance to meander through the streets to the less crowded areas. Of course, mind your path because it’s an easy place to get lost. I also enjoyed a boat ride on the canals and despite the cost, I highly recommend the adventure as it provides a different perspective. Overall, wonderful!

Nice Introduction to Venice
Oct 2018 • Solo
This tour provides a nice introduction to Venice, but you don't have a lot of time to explore. It's basically a brief walking tour and an optional gondola ride. I really enjoyed it, but would like to return to Venice another time to actually go inside some of the sights the tour guide told us about. If you go on this tour please do the gondola ride, it was awesome!

Beautiful day
Oct 2018 • Family
I've always dreamed about my visit to Venice and my Tour Guide Made the experience amazing ! Venice is really crowded and chaotic but she gave us all the information that we needed, even during the free time we felt safe because we had the ZaniViaggi emergency number written on each radio. The tour itself is well organised and I appreciate the fact that we had two different guides: one local and one that stayed with us during the day. Wear comfortable shoes because there is a bit of walking.

Horrible Tour guide
Oct 2018 • Solo
Our tour guide 'Sylvia' was horrible! It seemed that she did not want to be there. Her English was horrible and very broken. She rushed, rushed and rushed.

In many situations she walked so fast that she lost the group, and did not seem to care. Had it not been for other members of the tour I would have been lost! And could have missed the bus back to Milan.

Our tour guide "IN" Venice was not much better. She too seemed like she was not interested in being with the group.

Our visit to the glassblowing factory can be best described as a 'TOURIST TRAP'... Glass normally priced at 80 Euros, but today if you pay cash, only 50 Euros - yup - a tourist TRAP!

This tour is not for anyone with mobility issues - lots of walking and there is nowhere - and I really mean NOWHERE to sit down. And when you finally find a spot on the ground the Venice volunteers will approach you and tell you that you cannot sit on the ground! There are a lot of steps, bridges, uneven pavement and narrow streets. So if you have: hip, leg, or feet issues this is not the tour for you. The gondola rides are not for people with mobility issues either. they are not easy to get in and out of. I had visions of 'MAN in the water!',

Our tour bus did not have a toilet, and the trip from Milan is 3 hours long. We made one 15 minute stop about 1 hour into the 3 hour tour and that was it. Our tour guide told us - if you need to use the toilet, buy a coffee from one of the restaurants so they will let you use the toilet. Considering most of the members of the tour were 50-60 years old this lack of planning/accommodation was a bit of a problem for many of us. And like I mentioned before, our tour guide did not seem to care.

Once you get past the planning/accommodation issues and the 2 horrible tour guides - this was a great tour. I am a huge James Bond fan and was able trace the 'Moonraker' scenes and many of the locations of 'The Italian Job' - really cool.

At the end of the day - it is a once in a lifetime visit. And a bad tour guide in Venice is better than a good tour guide back in Baltimore.

Travelling on the road (4 hours) is much longer than spending time in Venice.
Sep 2018 • Family
I will strongly discourage day trips/tours out of Milan by bus. Furthermore it is very expensive, got to select English speaking tour guard and very very rushing to take tours in Milan. Travel on your own (free & Easy) would be an ideal good choice as you will see more at your own time frame & reasonable cheaper budget option by train or Metro or stay in Milan for 2 days to venture around this beautiful place better. Avoid peak seasons of Summer & Autumn when in Venice. Families with young children, elderly are not adviseable to take this tours. Glass factory is a waste of time unless if you have interest to buy the nice glass items or jewelleries.

I spent an unforgettable day in Venice with Zani. Our tour leader, Sylvia, was superb and extremely helpful. Walking along the lanes and by-lanes of Venice was exciting and fun, as was the Gondola ride and the glass making workshop.

The worst experience ...
I went with my Senior Citizen Mother for a day trip
From Milan to Venice...it was a total let down from the time we sat into the bus ..the guide himself was not clear about the plan ...nor he bothered to introduce himself ..kept saying it’s easy to get lost in Venice ..but didn’t bother to give his number ..but said to contact the emergency number ..you all know how busy Venice Is...no guidance or background about the food or restaurants...the glass factory was a waste ..the lady who was the guide at Venice was good ..but too
Much of talking ...
I had my gandola ride booked ..but I was lost and the guide was nowhere to be seen ..I would say here his number would have come handy ..but despite me not taking the tour of the gandola ..the guide did not refund the entire amount ..but on asking gave back 10euro from 20euro’s ...why??????
This is cheating and surely not a good reputation for your agency ..I work in the hospitality industry...you’ll in our county in India expect us to treat u with respect and honesty ..so u think we expect to be cheated in your country ...I will take this up
To the highest levels ...I am writing this review whilst on my way back from the trip ...it was more of a bus ride than a tour of Venice ...disappointed that’s all I can say ..and won’t ever recommend my fellow Indian colleagues to
Come to your agency ...

Bus to boat to Venice. So nice. Guide was great. The town and glass shops are spectacular. Lunch was nice and Gondola ride was OK. Our Gondolier was rude, but all the other parts of the trip were fantastic! I rode on a Gondola in Indianapolis, Indiana and the Gondolier told us about his boat and sang to us, this guy just said " be quiet and sit down", no singing, no chatting AT ALL, not a nice guy. Extra 20 Euro, don't bother. The rest of the trip was fabulous.
