About Venice:

Venice is a beautiful city with a rich history and a unique charm.  Explore the iconic St Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco)  where you can admire St Mark’s Basilica and climb the Campanile for the most stunning views of the city. Relax and take the quintessential Venetian experience on a traditional gondola where you will glide through the narrow canals and see the city from a different perspective.

Wander through the vibrant atmosphere of the  Rialto Market where locals buy fresh produce, seafood and more.  It’s a great place to immerse yourself in Venetian daily life.  Take a boat trip to the nearby islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello.  Murano is known for its glassmaking tradition, Burano for its colourful houses and lacework and Torcello for its historic sites.
