Venice – Delight in a Half-Day Tour of La Serenissima
Lavish palaces and marvelous churches tower above the narrow canals and rippling waters of the Venetian Lagoon. You will arrive at your hotel along a private dock and take a moment to settle into the comforts of the city. If you arrive early enough in the day, you can meet your guide in the lobby for a introductory tour. Cross over the splendor of the Rialto Bridge as the stone arches support the covering around an opening offering views to the canal. You will reach St. Mark’s Square to find the eponymous basilica shimmering with golden hues beneath the Byzantine domes.
