Exclusive Highlights of Venice

The very best of this legendary city, with a private guide.

A private guide will lead you through the medieval world's most glorious homage to human ingenuity on an experience covering the Venice of Marco Polo to contemporary Venetian life. 

Highlights of Venice include: 

  • Explore St Mark's Square, once the epicentre of the wealthiest and most powerful city in Europe
  • See the splendour of St Mark's Basilica, encompasing a millennium of illustrious history
  • Hear about the struggles to save this city from slowly disappearing beneath the dazzling waters of the Adriatic Sea
  • Experience what "La Serenissima" signifies, and has signified, to Venetians throughout the centuries
  • Step in the footsteps of the condemned and take in the spendid views of the aptly-named Bridge of Sighs
  • Experience the pomp and pageantry of the magnificent Doges and hear about their outlandish lifestyles
  • Enter the Doge's Palace, embodying one of the grandest propaganda campaigns ever seen in history
  • Hear how the Doges masterminded one of the biggest tragedies in the history of western culture - then profited from it
