VENICE full day tour from Milan including a guided walking tour as well as a boat trip along the Venice lagoon - every Sunday
Venice really needs no introduction. The watery city, home to gondoliers in stripy jerseys singing in front of the Bridge of Sighs, has been a fabled holiday destination for centuries.
For centuries Venice was a republic of immense power; controlling trade routes in the Adriatic, and waging successful wars with rival states. Ruled by a doge, who had his powers controlled by a cabinet, Venice was a proud and rich republic, known as la Serenissima, the most serene. Every year the Doge would take part in a symbolic ceremony, the Marriage of the Sea, to celebrate Venice's mastery over the ocean.
Venice is composed of more than a hundred tiny islets, packed closely together around canals. The city is in a lagoon, protected by the longer island of Venice Lido. Venice is famously sinking. Every year high water levels (acqua alta) threaten the city's fabric, and it has long been feared that the beautiful city will one day disappear beneath the water.
While in Venice you'll enjoy a boat trip on the Venice lagoon and take a two-hour guided walking tour. As you stroll, your guide will point out the significant buildings and monuments you'll pass.
With its singing gondoliers, exotic architecture and mysterious canals, Venice has been a fabled holiday destination for centuries.
