The Highlights of St. Marks + Boat

Boating and Sailing tour in Venice

Tour Price : 140 E + boat Duration : 2 hours Languages: English, German, Italian

We have a special private tour in Venice for those who are eager to spend their time in Italy in the most interesting fashion. We will start our tour from St. Mark’s church, which is known for its remarkable Byzantine architecture. It is also considered to be the oldest church in Venice, so it represents great interest for history devotees. It is truly a place of historical significance.

For centuries this Basilica was called the Church of Gold due to its opulent design, breathtaking view of the mosaics and the status of power and wealth of Venice. Then we will proceed to the Doge’s palace. Most people consider the Doge’s Palace to be major landmark of Venice.  It used to be the residence of the supreme authority of Venice – the Doge of Venice. According to the statistics more than a million of people visited the Doge’s Palace in 2010. As a professional private guide in Venice I would also recommend you to visit St. Mark’s square, which used to be the political center of the Republic of Venice.

Our next stop will be the Bridge of Sighs, which was nicknamed this way by the English romanticist Lord Byron. It is worth noting that the Bridge of Sighs was the last thing the criminals saw before their imprisonment, and that’s why the bridge bears such interesting name. We will continue our exciting tour on the board of the boat, where we will admire the incomparable Grand Canal and the legendary Rialto Bridge.
