Venice in One Day - In Russian: All day at your disposal to explore this enchanting and unique city walking through a labyrinth of small streets with hump-backed bridges spanning over 180 typical canals. Our walking tour is a journey spent between the best known sights of Venice along with some unassuming gems. We’ll visit Piazza San Marco. We’ll stand in front of the impressive Doge’s Palace where Venice’s famous lover and writer, Casanova was held in an attic prison before he managed to escape.
Then the main event – the stunning Basilica San Marco. Marvel at the diversity of Venetian culture as your guide points out the spots where eastern architecture and western design have blended to create a structure with an onion dome that could only have been created in Venice. In a rare extended tour of the basilica you’ll hear about how St. Mark’s remains arrived here illegally and see all sorts of treasures, molded in this very city or plundered during the crusades.
