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.

This is so nice including three excursions into one. In between each excursion we had about two hours to do our own exploring. I love the mixture of all three being that they were so different. Would definitely recommend us.
