After early morning hotel pickup in Milan, settle inside your comfortable, climate-controlled coach and journey east to Venice, rightly considered one of the world’s most beautiful cities.

Along the way, hear about the history of this celebrated ‘Floating City.’ Famous for being built on a patchwork of 118 islands linked by more than 350 bridges, Venice was one of Europe’s greatest maritime powers from the early 14th to the 17th century, with a domain spanning the entire Mediterranean.

Upon arrival, enjoy a boat trip across Venice Lagoon, admiring the ethereal-looking cityscape of domes, towers, and spires as you approach from the water.

Then, step ashore for a walking tour of the main attractions. Wander along the Riva degli Schiavoni, the main waterside promenade lined with historical buildings, statues, and palazzos; and pause to admire the splendid Rialto Bridge arched across the Grand Canal.

Next, stroll through St. Mark’s Square, the piazza Napoleon is said to have dubbed the ‘drawing room of Europe.’ Gaze at the richly decorated façade of St. Mark’s Basilica and stop for photos by the Doge’s Palace, the former seat of Venice’s elected doges.

After time for a coffee (own expense) at Italy’s oldest café, enjoy the rest of the afternoon to explore independently. Perhaps delve into the tangled canals, alleyways, and piazzas, and relax over lunch (own expense) at any of the enticing restaurants or eating spots.

Peruse the shops for souvenirs, and if you wish, take a romantic gondola ride (additional cost) or visit a glass showroom to see a demonstration of traditional Venetian glass blowing.

When it’s time, sail back across the lagoon, and rejoin your coach for your journey back to Milan, where your tour ends with a central drop-off.

A Great way to see Venice.

This was a long day (14hrs) but it was enjoyable. You have about 4 hours in Venice with the remainder being travel time. That was enough for me as even in the off season it was quite crowded. I would never visit in the summer! The tour was well organized.

I was not impressed with our tour. The headsets had so much static that we could hardly hear the guide..We told him this but he just shrugged his shoulders. We were later arriving that originally stated and only had 4 hours in Venice.

Easy and well organised

The tour company was professional and organised. The coach/bus was clean with good air conditioning which is critical in the summer. The tour guide managed the itinerary so well that we saw all the important places and still had some time to ourselves for lunch. I took the gondola option and it was absolutely worth it. The only negative is that while the tour company can pick you from your hotel (if you choose the option), they take you to a drop point where you meet other people and take the bus. I personally don't like bus tours and would have preferred a smaller coach but in the end it turned out okay. I highly recommend.

It was a day trip from Milan. The bus was very good and the tour kept to time while allowing us to have a good experience of Venice.The Gondola ride that was organised (at extra cost) was also reasonable and efficient

This was a great tour for people with limited time. Our guide did a great explaination of the highlights. I opted out of the gondola ride which I would recommend for more free time to explore on your own.

Guide took money for gondola ride. Told us to meet at de Marco Plaza in front of red sign. Evidently she meant corridor behind sign. Missed ride.

The tour guide we had on this day didnt care much about the group.i feel there were too many people to manage in this tour.1 guide for about 35 people.there were 2 people who were slow,they had to struggle to keep pace with the tour guide. This trip mentions hotel pick up.we had sent our confirmation a month ago but no one came to pick us. VERY POORLY MANAGED TOUR. The tour guide bought us gongola tickets quite far away from the centre of Venice well knowing that we have a person who wont be able to walk that far.She could have informed us that there was another gondola ride just where the ferry docking port was but if she did that perhaps she wouldnt have received her commision from those gondoliers.we ended up paying for 2 gondola trips. Uncaring tour guide with attitude,no hotel pick up,cunningly sold us gondola ticket for far off knowingly we wouldnt be able to do it and too many people in the tour. HIGHLY WOULD NOT RECOMMEND irrespective of other reviews here.

This was a great trip, long day but if you want to see Venice, I recommend this. Venice can easily be done in a day, I didn't feel like I needed more time there.
