Venice is a city unlike any other. No matter how often you've seen it in photos and films, the real thing is more dreamlike than you could imagine. With canals where streets should be, water shimmers everywhere. The fabulous palaces and churches reflect centuries of history in what was a wealthy trading center between Europe and the Orient.

Doge’s Palace & St Mark’s Basilica

Discover why the heart of Venice is known as La Serenissima during this half-day tour of the Doge's Palace, St. Mark's Square and Basilica, and a glass showroom. A UNESCO World Heritage property, the city of Venice and its lagoon is in the Veneto Region of Northeast Italy. Founded in the 5th century AD and spread over 118 small islands, Venice became a major maritime power in the 10th century


Depart the pier for a brief transfer via private motorboat to the exquisite Piazza San Marco.


Doge's Palace

Upon arrival, your awaiting guides escort you for a visit to the grand Doge Palace, or 'Palazzo Ducale', originally a square, fortress-like building with high walls, corner towers, and fortified gates. The building, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, is an accumulation of layer-upon-layer of building work and ornamentation that includes the original foundations, the 14th-15th-century structure, sizeable Renaissance additions and opulent Mannerist details.


During your visit, see a number of paintings by some of the greatest 16th-century masters, illustrating the historical events of the Serenissima Republic. Once the Doge's residence and the seat of the Venetian government and tribunal, the palace contained courtrooms and dungeons.


Ponte Dei Sospiri

Adjoining the palace is the famous Ponte dei Sospiri, or 'Bridge of Sighs'. This legendary structure connects the palace to the former ducal prison. Today, it is a favourite rendezvous of lovers who believe that if they kiss under the bridge, their love will last forever.


Continuing on, see the stately public buildings and elegant cafés of the piazza 'par excellence', which is wonderfully-animated by people, music and pigeons. The clock tower is topped by two bronze Moors who hammer out the time, and opposite is the 300-foot-tall (90 metre) Campanile overlooking the city.


St. Mark's Cathedral

Next, visit St. Mark's Cathedral, or 'Basilica di San Marco'. Due to certain restrictions inside St. Mark's Cathedral, your guide provides detailed narration before you enter. Named after St. Mark, the patron saint of the city, this impressive cathedral has foundations dating back to the 9th century. Venice's gateway between the Orient and the West is reflected in its Oriental design elements, which can also be found on two basilicas in Constantinople. On Sundays, or in the case of unexpected religious functions, only an exterior viewing is possible.


Glass Showroom

Leaving St. Mark's Cathedral, proceed to a local glass showroom. Upon arrival, observe a brief demonstration of artisans at work and learn the ancient methods and fascinating secrets used in creating beautiful pieces of art. Following the demonstration, you may visit the glass showrooms and have an opportunity to purchase authentic Venetian glassware.


At the conclusion of the tour, you may opt to stay in town for further exploration and return to the ship independently, or return to the motorboat for the transfer back to pier.


Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking with bridges to climb and many stairs to negotiate at the Doge's Palace. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Due to certain restrictions inside St. Mark's Cathedral, your guide will provide detailed narration before you enter. Because only one group may enter at a time, there may be a considerable wait outside. Tour groups are not permitted inside St. Mark's Basilica during services on Sundays and church holidays. However, time permitting and if the church permits, entry may be allowed on an individual basis to view the interior quietly and reverently. Your guide will not be allowed to enter with you. Tour cannot enter the cathedral in the case of particularly high tide that blocks the main entrance of the cathedral. No refund is foreseen in case of cathedral closure and outside visit. Conservative dress is required to enter the basilica; ladies must cover their knees and shoulders, and gentlemen must wear pants. For security reasons large bags and backpacks must be delivered in a checkroom before entering the venues. Guests are highly recommended not to bring such items with them during this excursion, in order to avoid any inconvenience and loss of time. Photography is not permitted in St. Mark's Basilica and Doge's Palace. The order of sights visited may vary.

Evening Gondola Experience

Experience the true essence of romance during a memorable, early-evening gondola cruise along the magical canals of Venice; an absolute must for any visitor to this enchanting city.


Depart the pier via motorboat for the ride across the Giudecca Canal en route to a pier near St. Mark's Square.


Upon arrival, take a short walk to the gondola landing stage and board one of these beautiful hand-painted boats, lovingly cared for by their owners and a source of great pride for them.


Gondola Ride

Although this cruise is non-narrated, the scenery speaks for itself as your gondolier traverses the narrow canals crossed by stone bridges and glides past balconied waterfront buildings. During your 30 to 35-minute ride, listen to musical serenade from a duo of musicians on board one of the gondolas in your flotilla.


Following this memorable gondola ride, enjoy a drink in the romantic atmosphere of Saint Mark's area before re-joining your motorboat for the ride back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking, including a 15-20 minute walk to the gondola station; some guests may find this more intensive than others. Guests must be reasonably agile, and able to embark and disembark vessels that sit low in the water. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility, and is not wheelchair-accessible. Casual clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The order of sites visited may vary. Each gondola seats four guests. Price is per person, not per gondola. Maximum weight of guest is not to exceed 230 lbs (104 kilos/16.43 stones).

It is solely up to the Gondolier to refuse boarding to anybody he seems is not able to enter and exit the Gondola without any assistants. Should this be case, no refunds will be given due to that. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility, walking difficulties and is not wheelchair-accessible. Casual clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Please note that the price is per gondola and is valid for two guests. Maximum weight of guest is not to exceed 230 lbs (104 kilos/16.43 stones).

Evening Grand Canal Cruise & St. Mark's Basilica

Embrace the scenic splendour of Venice during this evening sightseeing excursion along the famous Grand Canal. Venice by water is an absolute must for anyone visiting Venice to capture the true essence of the city.


Grand Canal Cruise (non-narrated)

Depart the pier in the evening aboard a motor launch for the 45-minute transfer to St. Mark's Square via the famous Grand Canal. Marvel at a panorama of noble buildings and superbly detailed façades that epitomize the architectural beauty of Venice, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. During the transfer a local will point out the sights of interest.


St. Mark's Square and Basilica

Upon arrival at St. Mark's Square, proceed for a guided tour of the Byzantine Basilica, one of the most venerated sites in the city. Learn about the history of the basilica and marvel at St. Mark's extraordinary treasures, the finest being the large gold Pala d'Oro, which is encrusted with more than 1,000 jewels and Byzantine enamels. The basilica is particularly rich in mosaics, which cover 10,764 square feet (1,000 square metres) of its interior; many of them date back to Byzantium. The remains of Saint Mark, patron saint of Venice, are interred here. Crowded with visitors during the day, it becomes a silent temple of worship as the evening falls.


Giudecca Canal Cruise

At the conclusion of the tour, you will be transferred by motorboat back to the ship via the Giudecca Canal, or opt to remain in town and return to the ship on your own.

Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking and standing for approximately 0.62 miles (about 1km), at times on cobblestone, uneven and/or slippery surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the motor launch and 600 steps up/down. Walking in St. Mark's Square is at the discretion of each guest. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, flat, closed-toe walking shoes are recommended. Proper attire is required to enter the basilica; shorts and bare shoulders are not permitted. Although the basilica is closed to the public, other guests may be permitted to visit during your time there. Photography is not allowed inside the basilica. During the transfer from the pier to St. Marks Square no commentary is provided. For security purposes, large bags and backpacks are not allowed inside of the Basilica. In order to prevent delays, it is recommended that guests not bring large bags or backpacks. The tour sequence may vary. Space on this tour is very limited; we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Cruise along the Giudecca Canal

Meet your licensed escort at the pier and embark your private motor launch for a cruise along the Giudecca Canal to the one and only St. Mark's Square. Once you reach the famous square, follow your guide for approximately twenty minute walk to the Doge's Palace.

Doge's Palace Exclusive Guided Visit

Enter the former official residence of the Rulers of Venice, avoiding the daily crowds and enjoy the magic and exceptional atmosphere of a silent Doge's Palace. The building, a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, is one of the main landmarks of the city of Venice in northern Italy. The Palazzo Ducale, or Doge's Palace, was the seat of the government of Venice for centuries. During your visit, see a number of paintings by some of the greatest 16th-century masters, illustrating the historical events of the Serenissima Republic.


Breakfast at St. Mark's Square

At the end of your visit, complete your extraordinary Venetian experience relaxing in one of the most luxurious and ancient cafès of Saint Mark's Square. Enjoy your cappuccino and croissant while the city slowly awakes and people start to animate the Square.

At the conclusion of this excursion, you may choose to re-board your private motor boat and return to the ship or stay in town and independently visit Saint Mark's Area or enjoy some free time to peruse the numerous boutiques around the Square. You will then make your way back to the ship.

Guggenheim Collection, Gondola Ride & Aperitivo

Leave the pier by private motor launch with a licensed escort and glide along the Giudecca Canal to the drop off point, located near to the Palazzo Venier de Leoni.

Guggenheim Museum

Located in Peggy Guggenheim's former home, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, on the Grand Canal in Venice, the museum was inaugurated in 1980 and it presents Peggy Guggenheim's personal collection of 20th century art, masterpieces from the Gianni Mattioli Collection, the Nasher Sculpture Garden, as well as temporary exhibitions.

Guided Tour & Free Time for Self-Exploration

Your lecturer, provided by the Museum, will firstly draw your attention to one of the most interesting and unique aspects to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, which is the fascinating history of its founder, and the significance of its location before introducing you into the collection itself, which boasts an important selection of works by Braque, Picasso, Mondrian, Mirò, Calder, Pollock, Moore and others. At the end of the guided tour some free time will be allowed for independent exploration of the museum.

Gondola cruise

At the end of your visit, take a short walk to the closest gondola station, where you will board a sleek black gondola (four passengers per one gondola), and embark on a 30-minute cruise through a part of the Grand Canal and some of Venice's smaller, less-trafficked canals, crossed by scores of stone bridges.

Aperitivo at St. Mark's Square

Your local experience would not be complete without an 'Aperitivo'. Enjoy the stroll to your specially selected venue, a beautiful old café at St. Mark's Square to sip a typical Italian beverage or a glass of sparkling wine while taking in the magical atmosphere of the Square.

At the end of the tour you may explore Saint Mark's Area on your own and return independently or join the transfer back to the ship.

Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking and standing with some steps to negotiate inside the museum. There are no handrail to board motor launch and gondola. Guests must be able to embark and disembark vessels that sit low in the water. Walking in St. Mark's Square is at the discretion of each guest. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilize a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing, flat, closed-toe walking shoes are recommended. Each gondola seats four guests and the ride is not narrated. Seats locations on the gondola are assigned by gondolier himself to guarantee gondola balance and safety. The tour sequence may vary. Space on this tour is very limited; we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment. The operation of this program is weather dependent. This tour has a 15 days cancellation deadline.

Hidden Venice on Foot

Discover the wonderful Old World architecture and scenic landmarks not typically encountered by visitors to Venice during this scenic sightseeing tour. Venice is renowned for the beauty of its setting, its architecture and its artwork. The city in its entirety is listed as a World Heritage Site along with its lagoon.


Campo Santa Margherita

Depart the pier on foot or take a brief transfer via motorboat to Piazzale Roma (depending on the ship's docking location) to reach Campo Santa Margherita, lively animated during weekdays by fresh fruit stands and a small fish market in the morning. Because many visitors to Venice catch only a brief glimpse of what the city has to offer, this excursion features a number of additional sights that reveal what lies behind its glittering façade. In a short distance you will reach Campo San Rocco.


Campo San Rocco

Your walking tour continues on for an exterior visit to Campo San Rocco to view the church and Scuola Grande di San Rocco. Founded in 1478 under the protection of St. Roch, the Patron Saint of plague victims, this was one of the great charitable institutions of the Venetian Renaissance. The interior houses some of the most important Italian paintings created by Tintoretto.

Murano & Burano Islands

Experience the centuries-old glass-blowing and lace production traditions of Venice during this picturesque sightseeing tour of Murano and Burano. The island of Murano became famous in 1291, the year in which the glass production was transferred here from the old city centre due to fear of fires in the kilns. Burano is one of the prettiest islands in the lagoon: it is a miniature Venice where all the houses are painted in bright colors. Burano is famous for its lace work, an art carried out since the sixteenth century and which is famous worldwide.


The Venetian lagoon, created by the estuaries of three rivers and separated from the Adriatic by a row of sandbars, is approximately 32 miles (51 kilometres) long. Venice lays in the centre, along with some 40 other islands in the lagoon. Nearly half of them are deserted, and some house market gardens or sanatoriums.


Depart the pier via motorboat for a cruise along the lagoon en route to the island of Murano.


Murano

In 1291, when furnaces were banned from Venice as a fire precaution, the manufacture of exquisite glassware was transferred to Murano. During Murano's Golden Age in the 16th century, the island supported some 37 glass factories and a population of 30,000. Since glassware was one of few Venetian exports, its secrets were closely guarded. Although its production is no longer a mystery, Murano's products are still renowned for their elegant artistry. During a visit to a leading glass factory, witness the masters of this delicate craft at work during a brief demonstration of this fascinating process. Afterward, some free time is made available for independent shopping and an opportunity to acquire some of this timeless art.


Burano

Continue on to the island of Burano, where beautifully painted houses adorn this small and cheerful fishing village. The banks of the canals are lined with fishing dories, and the setting is picturesque indeed. Next to the 16th-century Church of San Martino is the curiously-tilted campanile. In the 16th century, the island was renowned throughout Europe for producing the finest lace in the world. Although not a popular craft these days, lacemaking is still practised by some of the local women.


Following your visit, re-board your motorboat for the ride back to the pier.


Please note: This tour requires an extensive amount of walking. Although many sights are wheelchair accessible, guests must be able to embark and disembark motor launches that sit low in the water. Casual attire and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The order of sites visited may vary. A minimum number of participants are required for this tour to operate.

Enjoy a delightful evening performance of Italian opera in one of the most famous and renowned Theatre in Venice.


Cruise along the Giudecca Canal

Your local licensed escort will welcome you right outside Terminal exit. Departing from the pier board a private motor launch and cruise along the Giudecca Canal to the one and only St. Mark's Square. Marvel the Canal de la Zueca in Venetian. This body of water flows into the San Marco Basin and is along with Grand Canal one of the major canals in the city. It bisects the Sestiere (City Quarter) of Dorsoduro, separating the Giudecca Island and District from Dorsoduro itself.


La Fenice Opera House

Disembark the boat and accompanied by your escort take a short walk to the marvellous Theatre. La Fenice was inaugurated in 1792 and from the beginning of the 19th century it acquired an ever increasing European reputation thanks to the operas of the best composers of that period, such as Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti and Verdi. In the 20th century, after a period of closure during the First World War, La Fenice became the scene of intense activity, attracting the world's greatest singers and conductors.


Over the years, Venice's opera house burnt down twice, the most recent fire occurring in 1996. Today, the Opera House closely resembles its 19th-century predecessor, having been reconstructed with gilded mouldings of an improbable brilliance; pink-hued, plush seats and panelling covered with playful cherubs.


"Il Don Giovanni"

On 29 October 1787, the audience at Prague's National Theatre was treated to a light-hearted opera premiere that gradually took a descent quite literally into hell - and they loved it. Injecting the story of the famous fictional libertine with his usual wit and musical inventiveness, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart crafted Don Giovanni to entertain as well as shock. This season, the famous opera will do the same on the stage of the Gran Teatro La Fenice in Venice.

It is difficult to classify Don Giovanni. Mozart dubbed it an opera buffa, while Da Ponte characterised it as dramma giocoso, or a 'dramedy' by contemporary standards. In reality, the opera presents a journey from fun and adventure into the gradual realisation that all actions have consequences. The story culminates with Don Giovanni's descent into hell where he must pay for his past frivolities and transgressions.

Goosebumps are guaranteed!

Cannaregio District

Leave the pier by motor boat with a licensed escort for a transfer to the Cannaregio district and walk through little streets up to one of the most spectacular and best-kept secrets in Venice: since 1888 the furnace Angelo Orsoni, the oldest in the world of this kind, has been producing precious glass and gold mosaics for the most spectacular monuments in the world: from Westminster in London to the Golden Buddha in Bangkok, from the Theatre de l'Opéra de Paris to the Basilica of San Marco in Venice. Orsoni is the oldest mosaic furnace in the world, a real treasure of unique Italian craftsmanship set in a cool vintage factory.
