From the pier, you’ll travel approximately 20 minutes via private motor boat to reach the San Marco area along the Canale della Giudecca.  Meet your guide at the boat landing point and begin your stroll from the Venetians favorite square. You’ll first admire, adjoining the Doge’s Palace, the famous Ponte dei Sospiri, Bridge of Sighs. This legendary structure connects the palace to the former ducal prison. After some remarks on the history of Venice, which power for many centuries resided in these buildings, you’ll admire the Marciana Library, the Loggetta by J. Sansovino, the Bell Tower, the Clock Tower and its two bronze Moors, the two wings called Procuratie Vecchie and the Procuratie Nuove, besides the Cathedral in the daylight.  Next to the Cathedral is the Doges’ Palace, the former official residence of the Rulers of Venice (Dogi), one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture, well known for its ornate façade and multi-arcaded loggia.  Your guide will lead you through the narrow Venetian streets (Calli) up to the Grand Canal with a view of the Rialto Bridge, the largest of the four bridges spanning the most important waterway of Venice. Your free time (roughly 75 minutes) will begin from there, so take advantage of that time for independent exploration or tasting some Italian specialties.  At the conclusion of this excursion, you may choose to stay in town, making your way back to the ship at your leisure, or re-board your motor launch and return to the ship via the Giudecca Canal.

Note:  Guests must be able to walk approximately 1.15 miles over cobblestone and even surfaces.  Participants will need to climb approximately 6 to 7 bridges with approximately 10 to 20 steps each totaling over 150+ steps.  Participants should be in good physical condition since this tour involves extensive walking and standing on varying surfaces and climbing steps. Tour route may vary but all listed sights will be covered. Tour is not appropriate for guests using wheelchairs or guests with limited mobility. Time permitting; participants will have approximately 75 minutes of free time for shopping or browsing.
