Tour Overview Tour Overview

Enjoy the best possible value in Venice Tours on special offer. Take our excellent Avventure Bellissime’s Best of Venice walking tour that includes skip-the-line tickets for St. Mark's Basilica and fascinating walk through the labyrinth of the Hidden Venice. Take a ride in a traditional Venetian Gondola, and finish with our Small Group Grand Canal Boat Tour.


This Venice city sightseeing tours package starts with a full two-hour walking tour to recount the history of Venice from its early beginnings to the modern day. Following a monumental route from St. Mark's Square, visiting St. Mark's Basilica and Pala D'Oro with skip-the-line tickets and a journey through the labyrinth of back alleys and enchanting canals of the Hidden Venice, our walking tour covers the unique history of Venice from its beginnings to the modern day. We will include Castello district, Campo Santa Maria Formosa, Ponte Paradiso bridge & Calle Paradiso, Salizada San Lio and many more. Limited to a maximum of 20 participants with complimentary headphones included.


An absolute must for first-time visitors to Venice, you'll travel in a traditional Venetian Gondola limited to a maximum of six people. During this gondola ride in Venice you will glide through the narrow back canals of St. Mark's district to enjoy an intimate experience of another Venice, where time has stood still for centuries.

The 30-minute ride in a traditional Venetian Gondola will follow Grand Canal and selected minor canals and will pass by the ill-fated Ca' Dario Palace and the magnificent Salute Church built to celebrate the end of Venice's worst plague, just to name a few of the points of interest featured as part of this Venice day combo tour.


This Venice city sightseeing tours package includes also our small group Grand Canal Boat Tour: an informative and entertaining tour of the Grand Canal and minor canals of Venice as you travel in a luxurious motor-launch with an expert tour guide. Admire the fabulous architecture of the Palaces, Rialto Bridge, Churches & Medieval warehouses that line the banks of the Grand Canal, and be entertained by stories of the famous and infamous characters that have lived here over the centuries.

N.B. In case of unexpected closure of St. Mark's Basilica, all tours including the Basilica will operate as scheduled – our guides will provide a detailed explanation of Basilica’s history, architecture and its treasures from the outside and wherever possible will bring visual aids (either books or pictures or Ipad) to allow the customers to view the interior of the church.

Please note there will be a break between each tour portion based on each tour's individual operational schedule.

Marco was knowledgeable, spoke English well, and had a great sense of humor. He made the walking tour more interesting and enjoyable.

Avventure Bellissime tours are well organized with highly qualified guides who are enthused about their beloved city. Our gondola ride was enjoyable even if the gondolier was self-absorbed! Our Grand Canal Boat ride was a much better way to get a feel for the city and its water-based monuments. Our afternoon tour of San Marco Basilica and city walk was splendid with enough time to admire the city's monuments. Unfortunately, due to transportation issues (very late arrival by boat) we missed our scheduled morning tour of the Doge's Palace. We desperately tried to find our group but with no luck. Our loss.
