ShoreTrips says...

This private tour offers the possibility to visit all those sights that you should absolutely see when visiting Venice for the first time.

Your tour begins at the most important museum in the city of Venice: the Doge's Palace, the former house of the Government of the ancient Venetian Republic. While here, you'll learn about the origins of Venice, the main events which characterized the 1,000 years of her independence, the peculiar political system that the city created, and the main artists of the Venetian School of Painting. You'll also see the Bridge of Sighs and the ancient Prison of Venice. After the palace, you'll head to St. Mark's Basilica to admire the 9,000 square feet of golden mosaics, before a stop for lunch (additional cost).

After lunch, your tour continues on a luxury boat ride through the Grand Canal and the Cannaregio Canal on your way to the Island of Murano to see how the world-famous glass is produced. You'll witness the celebrated glass masters shaping authentic works of art with incredible ability.

You'll have some time for shopping before your ride back to Venice, passing by the old and glorious Shipyard and the island of Lido.

At the conclusion of this incredible day of touring, you'll be returned to your hotel.
