This has to be one of the best tours I have been on. The driver Carlo was full of knowledge and took many photos of us all at different stops. The views were spectacular. Would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Venice.

I was in one of 3 minivans that took the Dolomites tour on 16 September. I certainly enjoyed the tour, the views were stunning but like the previous reviewer the guide in our minivan was really a driver and only provided basic information at each stop. Because i can speak italian I was able to get extra information during the... More

We took this tour during our one night in Venice and it was awesome! Our tour guide spoke guide English and was born and raised in the city. It wasn't 100% ghost stories either, more so an overall history of the scandals and what the city was like when it was a dangerous and crazy place. Very cool and highly... More

Her stories of where she grew up and what it was like living in Venice gave us an insight that I don't think we could have found anywhere else. Then,... More

The stops along the way are absolutely gorgeous and worth a trip. You will visit all the places mentioned, with ample photo stops. The guide functions almost purely like a driver, and the whole tour is very "clock-work". Pity we drove a long way up the Tre Cime di Lavaredo peaks and was only given 10 mins up there because...

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
