Venice Combo: Skip-the-Line Best of Venice Walking Tour and Small Islands in One Day
From US$ 109.33
Couple up two top-selling tours in Venice with this Super Saver, a combination of two memorable experiences at a great-value price. You’ll begin on a morning walking tour of Venice’s signature sights, including skip-the-line admission to the Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Basilica, complete with entry to the first-floor terraces. Next, ride a water taxi to the islands of Murano and Burano in the lagoon. Watch Murano’s glass-blowers and Burano’s lace-makers at work, and enjoy the opportunity to buy their beautiful, quintessentially Venetian handiwork at discounted prices.
What to Expect
Skip the Line: Best of Venice Walking Tour Including St Mark's Basilica and Doge's Palace (3.5 hours):Meet your guide near the Rialto Bridge, Venice’s oldest bridge, and set off on your 3.5-hour walking tour to discover the city’s highlights.

Hear about Venice’s history as you navigate winding streets and tiny bridges, and pause at Marco Polo’s house. Listen to tales of the explorer’s sea journeys, and then stroll through the squares of Campo SS Giovanni Paolo and Campo San Luca on route to the Bridge of Sighs.

Continue into St Mark’s Square, the magnificent piazza that Napoleon dubbed ‘the finest drawing room in all Europe,’ and skip the long lines outside St Mark’s Basilica.

Gaze in awe at the mosaics-laden interior with your guide and visit the first-floor terraces — an area off limits to most tours — to behold the bird’s eye views over the piazza.

Next, stroll to the Doge’s Palace, once the home of Venice’s Doge and courts. Enjoy skip-the-line access and a guided tour of the palace highlights, including its glorious frescos by Tintoretto and Veronese.

Afterward, enjoy 1.5 hours at leisure before your Murano and Burano tour. Perhaps use the time to shop for souvenirs, enjoy lunch (own expense) or just people-watch from a café.

Murano and Burano Tour (5 hours):When the time comes, take a scenic water taxi ride to the nearby island of Murano, famous for its vibrantly colored glass.

Visit a glassblowing workshop to see the skilled craftspeople in action. Watch entranced as the glass is blown, colored and shaped into a dazzling array of products, and visit a glass showroom to admire and perhaps buy some finished pieces (own expense) at discounted prices.

Next, cruise on to the neighboring island of Burano. Take snaps of the rainbow-painted houses along the canals, and hear about the island’s lacemaking heritage at a lace workshop.

Watch the lacemakers at work, and hear how this delicate craft is a dying art. Browse some lace samples, and perhaps buy some keepsakes (own expense) at discounted prices before your tour ends with a return boat ride.

It worths every penny

Signed up for this 2 in 1 trip and it worths every penny. The morning tour included little walking tour in Venice, skip-the-line access to the St. Mark's Basilica and Doge’s Palace, while the afternoon tour was a private boat to Murano (glass making) and...More

Wehey Venice - you're pretty amazing!

This full day tour was long but worth it in every way, especially given our limited time in Venice. The day comprised two tours. The AM tour was a walking tour of the city including Rialto Bridge, Marco Polo landmarks, St Mark's Sqaure, the Basilica...More

Well worth the money

We met our tour by a statue in Campo San Bartolomeo. It is a good thing that we scouted out the place the night before as we just arrived the day before. Our tour had remote headsets so we can always hear our guide. Our...More

Check the hours of the palace or basilica. I found that some places are closed on Monday so the tours won’t be offered.
