Tour description provided by Viator

Discover Venice at your own pace, away from the tourist route, on a private half-day shore excursion walking tour. Discuss the sites you wish to see with your guide and plan the itinerary of your in-depth, personalized walking tour. To ensure you get the most out of your tour, please include any specific requests at the time of booking.

When your cruise ship docks in Venice, enjoy a shore excursion to see the best sights of the city.

If you are near San Marco, your itinerary can include:

  • Church of San Zaccaria
  • Santa Maria Formosa Church and Square
  • San Giovanni and Paolo Church
  • Rialto fruit and fish market
If you are near the train station area, your itinerary can include:
  • The Jewish Quarter
  • Madonna dell'Orto Church
  • Gesuiti Church
At the conclusion of your tour, you'll visit a traditional Venetian 'bacaro' (local bar) and taste local wine and a snack.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to the Venice port for your ship’s departure. In the extremely unlikely event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.
