Doge’s palace website says it opens at 8:30 am. The basilica also opens before 10. However every tour that I am looking at only starts at 10:45. Is there an 8:30 am tour that will finish Doges Palace and St Marks Basilica before noon? This will be on 7/7/18, a Friday.
How early in the morning can I get a private Gondola ride? I prefer to do this after sunrise to enjoy the serenity at sunrise and the morning hustle as locals start their day, but I am not sure if that is an option.
We are in Venice for a very short time. We arrive at 9:20 am on a Thursday and leave at 1 pm on Friday by train. On Thursday we are going to Burano islands, followed by some time in Venice and the Opera at night. Initially, we thought about doing Burano in the morning but again no tours that early. We also didn’t want to be be on an island waiting for the Vaporette while I missed my train.
