Reasons to Visit
Guided Tour of Venice
A guided tour of Venice on foot will offer the opportunity to see the main attractions around the area of St Mark’s Square. This will include St Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace. An experienced guide will give information on the history of the city and will be able to answer any questions you have on the city.
This monumental art gallery contains the world’s most complete 13th- to 18th- Century art collections. These include masterpieces by the Venetian greats of the Renaissance period such as Bellini, Giorgione, Titian, Tintoretto, Veronese and more. These masterful Venetian artists not only shaped the history of Venice art, but European art.
Gardaland is the biggest amusement park in Italy and one of the largest in the whole of Europe. Unique attractions lead the visitors in search of faraway worlds like the mysterious Valley of the Kings, Merlin’s Castle, the Medieval Joust, the Pirate’s Galleon or the fantastic journey on board rubber dinghies amidst oriental temples.
Ca' Pesaro - International Gallery of Modern Art
The core of the collection is made up of award-winning works exhibited or purchased at the Venice Biennale in the early decades of 20th century. Along the itinerary are displayed important 19th and 20th century paintings and sculptures, including masterpieces by Klimt, Chagall, Kandinsky, as well as a rich selection of works by Italian artists and an important section of graphic art.
The Doge's Palace, Venice, has façades which date from 1309-1424, designed by Giovanni and Bartolomeo Buon. The palace, started in the ninth century, several times rebuilt, and completed in the Renaissance period, forms part of that great scheme of town-planning which was carried out through successive centuries.
Island Cruise including Murano & Burano
By private boat & including guide the tour features two major islands: Burano, renowned for its lacemaking school; Murano, world capital of the glassblowing industry where guests have a chance to watch the artists at work. These islands are famous for their beautiful and colourful canal side houses.
Bridge of Sighs
Famous in poetry and legend for linking the Doge’s Palace to the prisons and so offering the condemned their last view of the outside world.

St Mark's Square
The heart of Venice, home to St Mark’s Church and the Doge’s Palace. There are no monuments in the large square due to the Venetians not wanting to promote individual glory above communal progress. Thus a statue planned by Napoleon of himself never materialised.
