N.B. Due to Lent religious observance St Mark’s Basilica will remain closed and no visiting will be permitted on all Saturdays and Sundays from now on until Easter included. These decisions are taken by the local authorities and are therefore beyond our control.
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.
Both tours featured on this Venice Day Tour combo, the Venice Grand Canal Boat Tour & Avventure Bellissime Original Venice Walk, start from the entrance to the Royal Gardens on the water front of St. Marks Square.
Directions: From St. Mark's facing the Basilica turn right and walk towards the open water. At the two giant columns facing the water turn right, and following the line of trees after a 100 metres you will come to the entrance of the Royal Gardens where we will be waiting holding a sign with the name of the tour written on it.
