A masterpiece floating on the Adriatic, Venice is the mother of all bucket list must-visits. This excursion kicks off right in the heart of the action – St Mark's Square – with a walking tour of the historic centre. You'll then have free time in the maze of palace-lined canals as well as the chance to enjoy optional trips in a gondola and the lagoon.
Boarding a private motorboat on the edge of the city, you'll arrive in style at St Mark's Square. Your guide will give you the lowdown on St Mark's Basilica and the Doge's Palace. Their orient-infused Byzantine Gothic architecture will whet your appetite for more. And there's no better way to explore Venice than a romantic gondola trip – an optional 30-minute one is available just after the walk.
You'll then have free time for lunch. If you fancy something really typical, locals love their cicchetti – Venetian tapas. In the afternoon, there's an optional one-hour lagoon trip, accompanied by your guide, or the chance to roam around yourself.
