Shore Excursions in Venice

Are you approaching Venice with your cruise ship, or are you leaving from the city on the Lagoon? Is it your first time in the Doge's city, or have you already visited its most beautiful attractions? Look at our shore excursions around Venice, or book a transfer to get around with all the best comforts.
The unique, unchanged charm of Venice can be found in the romantic Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri) or in the magnificent St. Mark's Square and San Marco Basilica. To taste it, you can choose a tour of the Doge's Palace or of the La Fenice Theatre, a walk on the Rialto Bridge to observe its chaotic and picturesque Rialto market. Or, you can opt for the most typical experience: a gondola ride in the Grand Canal and others Venetian canals, the best way to admire all the charm of Venice.
With one of our small group or private Venice shore excursion you can visit some venetian attractions outside the usual tourist itineraries proposed by the cruise companies that arrive at the Venice cruise terminal, like the Venetian Jewish ghetto, the oldest Jewish ghetto in the world, located in the Cannaregio sestriere of Venice.
Other places worth exploring are the Islands of the Lagoon surrounding Venice: the island of Murano, home of glass blowing, the island of Burano and its coloured houses, and the island of Torcello, that hosts some of the most ancient monuments of the surroundings.
Choose one of these places, attracting tourists from all over the world, or discover our tailored offers, to make you discover the music, the flavours and the atmosphere of the hidden Venice.

Incredible amount of touring in a short amount of time.

We did not have much time but wanted to cover a lot of area. Adriana was our guide for the entire weekend and she was incredibly knowledgable and went at the pace we set. Booking a private tour aloud us to choose specific times that suited us and we weren't lost in a group of people. Adriana was considerate to the three generations present in our group and answered all of our questions and gave plenty of options on where to go to eat and visit after our time with her had ended. Our experience with Adriana has prompted us to seek future travel specifically to Venice and we will be sure to request Adrianna. This tour was worth every penny.
